I informed Lavasoft about this with version 8.2.0 version, but got no response. The free version of Ad-Watch will monitor processes, but does not have files protection. This may explain why it detects the file during a scan, but does not catch it as it enters a system.

Thanks for posting, I've updated the info to Lavasoft so they'll see it again. Edited by visitor

I was right in my post above:

Ad-Aware Free: Detects Eicar test file during a regular scan
Ad-Aware Pro: Ad-Watch Live! detects Eicar test file as soon as it hits the hard disk.

Thanks for the report.

Regards,
