    Hello:

    On Nod32 V4.2.42.0 64 bit W7.

    During a scan is it possible to have a Nod32 update?

    If so, what would happen, does the scan restart or just proceed from that point with the updated signatures?

    After the update and during the scan does the RT scanner use the "new" signatures or the "old"?

    An on-demand scan would complete with the signature database loaded upon scanner initialization. Real-time scanner starts using a new database immediately after update.

    Hi Marcos:

    Excellent! As a full on demand takes me about 30 minutes to complete starting over did not appeal!
