I've had occasion to check the settings of at least 6 of my client's computers in the past fortnight (for a totally unrelated issue) ... each time I discovered that Imon had not started. I've gotta tell ya this is really freakin' me out!!! I'm considering emailing all 200+ of the people I've installed Nod for and getting to check their settings, but before I do, I'd sure like to know if anyone else has had this experience and if anybody knows why this is happening? I'd like to have an answer for these people if & when I find there are more out there with the problem. I have set up all of my clients' computers to email when they get any virus warnings or other error messages, but I had no inkling about this problem. I'd have thought Nod would generate an email warning when Imon was disabled ... under the circumstances, wouldn't it be a good idea if it did? I would never have known about these if these people hadn't contacted me about something else & I had been going through their settings with them.
