    How come NOD32 does not pickup EICAR.COM when you run it?
    I got a message that test virus was executed "Divide overflow" :eek:

    Hi, I tested it and everything is reliably detected. How did you run the file?

    Do you mean setting the cleaning mode for the real-time protection to strict cleaning?
