It's NOT imho a conflict. It's a bug (or feature? ;)) in Nod.
Remember that you were not able to access the file even if avast was completely disabled (so it's not a conflict).

Anyway, am glad we've sorted this out.

unfortunatly it is a conflict between Avast4 and Nod32  :( :(
a few days ago I uninstalled Avast4 (to check some iNEWS problem) then installed eTrust 7 promo as my on-access scanner and unchecked both NOD32kernel and nod32kui without unloading/renaming amon.vxd..
When I tried to create eicar.com file , eTrust detected and stopped it at once..
I do not understand exactly why Avast4 - only - is conflicting with Nod32 ?  ??? ???  :'( :'( :'(

why is this a bug ???

imho lots of AV-Monitors (e.g. AVPE) load not from the startup-panel Mina shows above, but by Services/devices/(vxd)-drivers somewhere else..

I guess Mina just would have to properly disable NOD32 via its own config, or by uninstalling & reinstalling it WITHOUT the NOD-Monitor/On-Access-Scanner ;)

Sorry Mina, didn't read your last post..

did you reinstall Nod after renaming the VXD ?

did you check it works on eicar before installing the other AV again ?

Nod32 is working fine  ??? ???
My problem is that Avast4 on-access/on-demand scanners can not catch eicar file while Nod32 is disabled only from the startup list (amon.vxd is loaded).

Well, as you can see, disabling NOD32 from Startup is not enough - the resident protection is loaded and active. It is bloking the access to "infected" files (such as Eicar) - so it is no wonder that avast can't catch it (when it can't read it at all).
