    Now that NOD is certified for spyware cleanup...

    Will NOD32 be improved to remove all of those registry entries that get made (bho's, run keys, services, explorer hooks etc)?

    I have talked this through extensively with NOD32 support (via here) and the short answer is no, it is not current planned...fingers crossed for v3.

    The reason is not that they are choosing to ignore this threat. It is because they don't believe it to be a thread any longer if the malware (virii, trojan, etc.) has been eliminated. To use an analogy, once the dragon's head is cut off the body can do no damage.

    And to a certain degree they are right. At that point it is a matter of cleanup and not security.

    You're riight. ;) Of course cleaning corrupted or damaged registry resulted from an infection will be also nice to be implemented in NOD32 v.3.0. :)
