i downloaded the eicar test file in zip format and was able to open it also without cavs detecting it,also downloaded the eicar dot com 1 too?

Did you try running them?

no i figured it would nail it when unzipped?

To save computer resources, CAVS is on-access, not on-view.

thanks for telling me,this is a good and active forum can learn alot from you guys(i like the comodo software too (B)
