    I know kav and mcafee have excellent unpacking engine. How about the other avs, such as antivir, bitdefender, nod,and norton?

    Apart from KAV and McAfee, some other AV's which have good unpacking engines include;

    1. All AV's which have a Kaspersky engine; e.g. AVK, F-Secure.

    2. Dr Web; BitDefender; AntiVir.

    Further, I believe the latest versions of both NOD and Norton have improved considerably in their ability to unpack.

    Darn....if ArcaVir does not have a good unpacker I might consider BD in the future...

    I am not sure how ArcaVir compares to some of the other AV's I listed above but it can unpack a number of run-time packed files and scan the usual archived files as shown HERE.
    But I would not change a good AV solely on the fact that it did not have very many unpackers.

    F-Prot and Command, for example, virtually have no unpacking ability but they are still considered top-notch AV's.
