    Nod32 v2.7 seems to think that dozens of my files are infected with the virus "Win 32/Polip". e.g. regedit.exe; notepad.exe, etc. It is unable to "clean" them, so it asks to delete.

    The latest versions of Spyware Doctor, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Super Anti-Spyware Pro and Trojan Remover do NOT detect this virus.

    If these virus detections are in error, is there any way to stop the scanner from halting every few seconds when one of these Polip viruses is detectedo_O

    Thanks for any thoughts...

    Spyware Doctor , MBAM , SAS , etc are all anti-malware/anti-spyware programs . Polip is a virus . So they can't detect viruses and you can't expect them detected viruses/file infectors.

    If NOD32 is unable to clean this virus , you can temporary disable AMON , restore 10-20 files from the Quarantine , send them to archive (password protected) and send it to ESET support@eset.com

    The correct email address for submitting samples is samples[at]eset.com. Please use something like "Polip virus - cleaner needed" in the subject and enclose a link to this thread as well.

    After cleaning out the virus, I'd strongly recommend that you install EAV v3 or better v4 beta.

    Thanks Marcos, I will send a sample.

    So these files actually ARE infected?
