    When I enter a crack site, for exemple, KAV detects a lot of trojans, but NOD32 does not detect anything.. why?

    mine used to bring up a red screen all the time - so I silenced it - are you sure you haven't told it to terminate the connection quietly?

    What about client compatibility. Is it set to higher efficiency?

    Have you tested it with eicar.com? Just to make sure there ain't another program interfering with IMON.

    Yes, I´ve tested with Eicar... NOD32 detected all. But when I enter a crack site, for testing, KAV detects a lot of "potentially dangerous programs", and NOD32 dont..

    In a crack site that I´ve visited for testing, KAV detected 2 malwares: the first one is a Trojan-Downloader.JS.IstBar.J and de second was a potentially dangerous program called "Exploit.HTML.CodeBaseExec".

    NOD32 detected only one, called "Trojan-Downloader.IS.IstBar.K". AMOn and IMON was setup to detect potentially dangerous programs, but did not detect them..

    Try setting it to higher efficiency and try again.

    If that fails, submit the "viruses" to Eset to check out.

    A interesting thing: KAv detects the "Exploit.HTML.CodeBaseExec" when the realtime protection is enabled, but when I turn of the realtime protection (so the Exploit.HTML.CodeBaseExec may pass) and I do a on demand scan, KAv do not detect the "Exploit.HTML.CodeBaseExec"...

    HTML exploits are not actually threats, they can only be exploited by malware to perform a malicious action.

    So its kind a false positive of KAV?

    I wouldn't say so. For instance, the IFRAME exploit is a standard HTML tag which can be exploited in emails to open a particular website automatically whenever OE shows a preview of such an email (I reckon this was fixed with OE 6).
