    hi,
    I have version 669 and I have read that there is now version 672, I am receiving updates on a regular basis - twice , three times a day sometimes -but nothing to indicate that my "version" needs to be updated. Is this something I need to worry about?


    My second question is probably slightly daft to techical bods , but when I am completing a full scan - which I do twice a week - can I still use the internet or is the anti virus 'inactive' whilst the scan is in progress..

    Many thanks for the reply , understand point 2, however confused over point 1.

    i have read the thread on version 672, I am Uk based so I would appear to fit the criteria for the version . It then goes on about 100% cpu usage and whether this wil be fixed , but unless I missed it , there is no reference to newer versions downloading automatically.

    So , am I required to uninstall version 669 and then reinstall version 672?. which brings me onto another point if so, do i need to do this or will version 669 last me up until my licence expires in 2010?

    Hello apache,

    There have been no Program Component Upgrades (PCU). There is no need to worry as long as they aren't having any problems.

    Thank you,
    Richard

    My link was to the changelog, which was 1 line, not really an emergency update.

    As far as ESET goes, all clients are "free", you're only really paying for the license. Buying a license allows you to use any version of nod32 and provides it updates.

    I wasn't confused but now I am , I dont really understand the above reply.

    So I keep version 669, but there is a newer version, it's then my choice if I wish to download the newer version or not?.

    I thought the idea of newer versions was that they fixed bugs in previous versions? so should we not be receiving an update notice saying something like " a newer version is now available for download"

    Yes it ia your choice to download it, your license will work on any version.

    No it will not tell you there's a newer version unless there is some critical change that ESET decides to put it in the auto-update.
