    Right I realize that. But I have many clients not on Vista or IE8.

    AV software will not protect against a vulnerable library being used as an infection vector; no AV software will do this. If malicious content comes down to the system and the signatures or heuristics can detect it, then Nod32 will protect your system. You are best off running the FixIt .msi package from Microsoft which will install the Killbits CLSID's to keep this library from launching in IE.
