    Will NOD 32 catch and stop Worms that are trying to execute?

    Yes it would.
    NOD32 uses two different aproaches - for known worm it uses scanstrings as any other antivirus program does. NOD32 is in some cases even capable to stop unknown worms using its advanced heuristic (active by default in EMON/IMON).
    NOD32 detected this way e.g. Win32/Swen.A without any need for update... :D
