    Hi,
    I have recently changed from KAV to nod32 (a good decision so far, its much, much faster :) )
    Over the past month when I had KAV, on a couple of occasions when visiting sites I received the warning that KAV had detected "Trojan-downloader.HTML.agent.aq" and was prompted to delete it.
    Does anyone know if Nod32 detects this? I can't find it or a similar named variation in the sig database.
    Thanks

    Kav possibly(only possibly!)may detect slightly(very slightly!)more than Nod so I suppose there is a chance(very small chance!)that Kav is detecting this and Nod missing it,run kaspersky web scan and see if that picks it up on your system,Nod may have just blocked it silently,it depends hoe you've got it set

    We can all pull up info re what each av detects or doesn't my point was Kav may detect this and Nod may not,he asked why Kav had flagged it and Nod hadn't!why do you get so touchy every time somebody mentions Kavo_Oo_Oo_O?
    In fact if a question is asked here and mentions any other Av should we post replies in the forum relating to other AV's and let the original poster hunt around for replies, ~snip~

    Sorry my question seems to have caused some confusion - I was not asking why KAV had detected it and nod hadn't, as I didnt have nod on my system when I encountered it so nod never had the opportunity.

    I was checking to see if Nod currently detects it (I now know it does - if it didnt then I would avoid using the site(s) where KAV alarmed at last time).

    I was not intending to cause a nod vs kav debate.
    Regards

    To Suggers. You can upload questionable files to Jotti's and Virus Total where the file can be scanned by multiple Av's. I'm sorry if Ive posted something your already aware of.

    It really is a very simple matter, this is the NOD32 Support Forum, and it really is that simple. There was no need to place a KAV jab in like you did; you just want to push the boundaries like you have tried to before.

    Simple fact is he asked a question which related to kav detecting something,how can you answer without mentioning it?
    Your paranoid when it comes to Kav!

    I managed to do it very simply by checking VGrep, and for the record, during the past 4 years I don't think I've ever needed to mention KAV or any other antivirus in the NOD32 Support Forum as there really isn't a need, unless I wanted to push another product, which would be just plain rude.

    Any further with this matter, take it to PM with an Admin.
