I love nod 32.. but this problem has been plagueing me for almost a year... I just live with it.... I have to periodically check to see if IMON is turned off.. and when it is.. turn it back on. I have opened threads about this before and have had several nice folks try to help...... I have 4 computers myself between my friends and relatives.. monitor about 5 more systems with NOD 32 on them..... all of them from time to time have this anomally? Some do it fairly frequently and some so it on more rare occasions... however the one that seems to act up the most probrable does the most email passage.. My dad has a newsletter that sends about 50 or so emails out a day... his seems to be off everytime I check it? I don't know if IMON gets overwhelmed with large #'s of email at one time, or if its something else? If anyone else has this problem, can we please put our heads together to figure out what is error is? I keep praying that the .44 version will come out for XP and it will be fixed.. but I'm not holding my breath because NO ONE has yet acknowledged that they have yet figured out what is going on... therefore I fear NOD will not catch it either. thanks for your help.
