    I'd like for someone to perform a little test. Norton AV is supposed to scan inside of RAR files, but mine on several systems fails to do so. Of course, Symantec support is having me install, uninstall, run their registry scrubber, etc. to no avail.

    The test is, create a test RAR with a couple of EXE files and one generated from EICAR Test Virus Description. I want to see if NAV can find this file in a RAR file. Mine finds it in a ZIP, but not a RAR. BTW, my NAV is the version that comes with Norton System Works Pro 2003, with all Live Updates applied.

    I'm tired of screwing around with the brain dead people at Symantec, so if I can show them that this doesn't work in other locations, they might actually think about the real problem. :rolleyes:
