    I've recently upgraded to the latest build of v.3. In 2.7, I had a setting that prevented an attempt to auto-update untill the wireless connection had established. I can't find the equivalent in v.3, with the result that I frequently get an "update failed" message because NOD32 had tried updating too soon after the laptop had been turned on.

    What is the "work round" in v.3?

    Regards

    I meant to add that the 'events' log file doesn't show these failed updates - I'm sure it did in 2.7? Do I get the feeling that v.3 has been "dumbed" down to make the interface nicer?

    do you notice a performance hit - or is it just that the failures mean the system waits for another hour to get the updates again?

    If the latter, change frequency to more frequent than an hour - say 30 or 20 minutes.

    I don't know where the delay until connected is within 3.0 - I don't run it on either my work or home machine.... :blink:

    Change it to 'dial-up' and it'll start the backup when a connection is established.

    Thanks for that - I had in fact selected Dial Up as well as Regular Update. If I uncheck Regular Update, does the database only get refreshed immediately after connection is established, and then is not refreshed after that? If so, that seems to leave a hole in the protection.
