    I can't remember offhand if you have the trial version or not but I'm not sure that it would make much difference in your set up.

    First, I think NOD is set by default to check for an update once every hour, so that's one reason you're being bugged. I'd go into the program (I think it's in the updater setup? I'm not at my own home PC at the moment so can't look) and at least extend the time in between update checks or even turn if off as long as you check daily until this is figured out.

    Now that's not a fix, just cutting down on the annoyance until the problem is found/fixed. I assume you've downloaded and installed the update but still the program keeps asking you again to do it, like it's Groundhog Day? (the movie, I mean.)

    I think someone else may have complained of being bugged by repeat updates in another recent thread before. I don't clearly recall the solution. But my guess is the updater thinks you don't have the update installed which is why it is offering it to you again....probably because somethings borked, either the updater or the existing files in the database that the updater checks. I'm thinking the easier route is dealing with the the theory something's borked about the existing database file(s) you do have. So one thing I would do is look to see if I could find the NOD directory (folder) where the updates are kept....it might be that if you can figure it out, deleting the latest update or even the whole thing (I hope you're not on dialup) might clear it out and when you re-download the updates to bring you up to date perhaps that will stop the hiccuping update attempts.

    I wouldn't want to advise uninstalling and reinstalling NOD right off the bat as that may not be necessary or relevant. I'd fiddle with finding and perhaps deleting the latest update signature definition update file or the whole virus database and then re-updating manually and see if that makes for a clean start.

    And if things work out, make sure if you disabled the auto update feature to turn it back on so it can do its thing on whatever schedule you put it on. (I thought the default every hour was too much, but that was me.) Hope this helps or at least that someone will come along who can help. :)
