I have NOD32 version 2, Windows 2000 multiprocessor, SP4, Netscape 7.1 This is a LAN server. Internet connection goes through an external router/firewall/NAT. In "update", "Automatic update" is disabled. I want to do the updates manually. Every time i connect to the internet, a tiny window appears near the clock and it's something about NOD doing an update, despite my settings. I suspect this annoying thing is causing some sort of interference with the routers web interface. The routers webpage freezes. This started to happen after the big update when DMON was added. Previously, i was also able to quit NOD and to stop the "NOD32 kernel service" whenever NOD caused trouble. It does that sometimes. For some weird reason, the service can no longer be stopped. I want full control over my computer and i want to be able to start and stop services as i like. Why is the service locked? How to get around this?
