    Nod32 is an antivirus program, and excels in killing off viruses. Recently an anti-adware component was introduced. It is a secondary service, so don't expect it to be perfect (for the time being). Nod32 is not meant to replace Ad-aware/Spybot/your favorite adware killer. So use them, and no such problems will occur.

    Yeah, NOD32 has just started with Ad-Aware detection but ESET is improving engine with every single update. If you find any ad-aware which NOD32 doesnt detect just send it to ESET:)
