    Hello all,

    First i want to give my compliments to ESET for this nice product :thumb:

    I just wanted to try ESS out with a unknown "virus" in a archive (link here: http://www.morgud.com/interests/security/dfk-threat-simulator-v2.asp
    ) The archive is all the way down the page (password: Morgud.com). It's a threat simulator that tries to simulate a zero-day malware attack (got a remover in it). When i tried to unzip it it detected a unknown NewHeur_PE virus (good sign!) in it. But the problem is when i tried to delete it, whole the computer just locked up (tried it twice, both time locked up). Is it just my computer? or really a bug...

    I was able to delete it fine. What did you use to unzip it?

    Unzipped it and ESS nicely asked me what to do with it.


    PS. I really like the GUI

    aah, found the problem! I disabled Prevx and after that it was able to delete it again without a computer lock up :D

    Great.
    So we found another "bug"? It doesn't work well with Prevx
