    Today I've seen in a friends of mine Pc his Avast antivirus detecting and deleting a un-deletable active in memory trojan. The antivirus has performed a system reboot and then made a sort of command line scan, before the op.sys was fully loaded, to find and delete the infected file.

    I wonder if NOD32 do the same thing in case of un-deletable infected file.

    "Unfortunately" :) in two years of NOD32 use in my Pc I had never experienced a similar situation...

    Thanks,

    Mario

    ...by storing the file name in the PendingFileRenameOperations entry in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager subkey of the Windows Registry.
