I ran the trial version of NOD without any update problems at all. I have been running the full version for a month or so now happy to see when I boot my notebook NOD collected any updates before I could even check myself. Oever the last few days I have had to click to check for an update and found there was one each time. I was prompted for my password which I had to re-type into the box and the update downloaded without problems. Normally I like to check all my software for updates before doing anything but NOD is the only one I was happy about it finding the updates without me. Time Module Event User 04/05/2005 18:13:43 Update Function: DownloadAuthorization, parameters: , return value: 401 04/05/2005 18:13:43 Update Update attempt failed (Incorrect username or password.) Time Module Event User 06/05/2005 07:53:52 Update Function: DownloadAuthorization, parameters: , return value: 401 The only change I made to my computer was installing MSBA and this loads at start up now - it was only after this NOD didn't like to go for an update - could this be the reason as I will configure MSBS not to load (hopefully) if I thought it was conflicting with NOD Edit: just checked MSBAS - no blocked events logged so this is mostl likely not be the reason. I really would like to know why NOD wants my password when it is already there Thank you for any advice.
