    Ok, we all know from independent testing that kaspersky and nod32 detect a lot of virii. However, could someone point me to a study that shows comparatives of actual removal?

    Sure, go here. Click on comparatives and look at the latest test. Of course at this very moment their site is down for server maintenance.

    actually you asked for deletion and not just detection,

    out of the 2 you mentioned, kaspersky definatly wins this one

    although nod32 has great detection, it still has problems with some removals, the dreaded manual removals, although they do promise to work on this for their suite.

    Could you be please more specific? For instance, if a dll is injected in an already running process I doubt any AV would be able to remove it on the fly without risking severe system problems. Or you meant something else?

    when i tried nod, it would find a virus, delete some and say something about a manual delete, this i didnt like so took it out.

    never heard of manual delete before, thought that was the point of the software, never seen kaspersky do that or my trusted trend.

    NOD32 does not delete archives automatically for safety reasons, but you can configure the on-demand scanner to delete them automatically.
