    has nod32 a problem with beagle virus and it´s variants? because i was several times infected with this type of viruses and nod32 do not detect them.
    why other antivirus like kaspersky detects these type of viruses always.
    i´m a big fan of nod32 but sometimes i get trouble.:(

    Hi, instead of security software you have to rethink if you run or not run unknown file, which you downloaded, got from your friend, etc. If you have got suspicious file, test it on eg. virustotal.com and if several antiviruses signed malware, submit this sample to virus lab as Marcos said. The reason of undetection new variants can be using new packers and masks, which protect them.

    Now, if your computer is infected, the best will be help on some forum oriented on removing malware. ;)

    Got a nasty Beagle rootkit variant last week and NOD32 didn't catch it. Fortunately it was time to make a new fresh install of XP anyway. Things you postpone until you HAVE to. ;)

    And of course, if you have been infested with a rootkit you should always make a new install anyway, security-wise that is. Rootkits really is the worst thing that happen to you and i for sure wouldn't take any chances with it.

    Well, small or not, because of certain rootkits behaviour a new install is still the best solution. Security-wise that is.

    This rootkit i'll had killed ALL anti-virus, including NOD32. My NOD hanged during startup, exactly like it did as in picture by alloucho - https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1150667&postcount=5.

    I couldn't get access to any hidden files or folder. The rootkit disabled it.

    It wasn't possible to boot into safe mode.

    Conclusion - New installation. ;)

    This is the splash screen which needs the ESET kernel in order to minimize . Since the threat has killed the ESET service , ti can no longer close and appears hang .

    These two things can be repaired with simple free utilities available on the Internet . Then you can start fighting the rootkit itself and later reinstall NOD32 . Definitely there is a way . But :

    In your case it was simply time to reinstall , something you seem to have postponed some times :p :)

    i thought fighting rootkit is what an antivirus is supposed to do:doubt:
    why do i need to reinstall nod32 if it can´t catch many rootkits, spywares and other Polymorphic variants??:mad::thumbd:
