NOD32 for Windows cant clean viruses contained in an archive, it can =
only detect them.  
The DOS version of NOD32 can clean archives though.  The following taken =
from FAQ on the NOD32 site:

          NOD32 scanner detected a virus, but the only available option =
is Leave
  1.. The virus was detected in an archive.
  NOD32 is not capable of taking actions on the files within an archive. =
Therefore, please delete the whole archive manually if it contains only =
the virus, or use the appropriate unpacker such as WinZIP, WinRAR, etc. =
to delete the particular infected file in case the archive contains also =
other non-viral files.

The major one I feel is worth mentioning, is resource consumption. I trialed
Kaspersky on several boxes a while back and on all of them there was a very
noticeable resource drain. Its scanning engine is aggressive enough to make
mundane tasks such as opening up the start menu or add/remove programs can
take several times longer than usual. The start menu was a bit sporadic
(depending on caching I guess) while add/remove programs was consistent on
all machines. Opening up folders also tended to take quite a while at times,
probably due to KAV scanning files as they were accessed for icon retrieval,
is my guess.

If it hadn't been for that one issue, I would be a KAV owner today. It's a
very nice product if you don't mind/notice the slowdown.
