I've just installed the trial version of NOD32 v2.5 and followed the steps in the sticky for Extra settings in NOD32. I wanted to check if I had done everything properly by using a test that doesn't use a malicious file, but will still trigger a response from the AV, thus ensuring the set-up is secure for my browser. I was also going to try sending one as an attachment to check if it would be caught in my Outlook Express 2k e/m ac. I was recommended Eicars Anti-virus test file. I dl'ed the four files and scanned them with NOD32, but as far as I can tell the AV was unable to detect the files in zip archives. Here's the results from the log, maybe I'm wrong: My Sygate Firewall also caught the following packet and I'm not sure what it means [looks like double dutch to me] but it seems to confirm that the AV failed the test afaik.
