    What version were you using and did you submit it to Eset?

    Did you use the stand-alone Olmarik remover?

    The stand-alone tool said that I was not infected with it. I even ran it from a WinPE environment. And this is the latest version of the business edition of NOD32 (which is still version 4).

    Edit: this was an MBR infection. There was no file to submit. Is there some way to submit my entire MBR for analysis?

    NOTE - I have just had the same experience with my daughters laptop. ESET 4 would report the Olmarik infection. I tried both of the stand alone Olmarik removers and both reported that the computer was NOT infected. I downloaded the Kapersky TDSSKiller tool and it found a Pihar infection which it cured. Unfortunately there isn't a log I can send you.

    Was Olmarik actually found in MBR or in memory?

    In my case the ESET warning was an in memory infection.
