    Im not sure that you can. Eset relies on passworded update servers to prevent piracy, and if updates were made freely available to download as, for example, a .zip file, then it would render the username/password useless.

    Why is it that you require manual updating? Are you having problems with the automatic updater?

    Not that bad, but my computer has no internet connection so i prefer to download manual updates on the cafe and browse them on my computer. If there's none it's ok. Just wanna ask. o_O

    in a cafe - not sure how that would work... but there is a way if you have access to another machine which does have internet and also has NOD32.

    When you purchase a multi-user license, you get to download and install the local network mirror version - also called the "admin" version of the nod32 client.

    this version can create a local mirror - and I have mine setup to create the local folders - in my case as: C:\NOD32Mirror

    This folder contains two folders: CD and Floppy

    inside each is a folder called nod_upd

    I generally copy the CD\nod_upd folder to a usb memory stick device.

    Then, on site I plug in the usb device - it appears as a windows drive (say the G: drive).

    From inside the nod32 control center, in the update setup - inside the locations should be listed:

    A:\nod_upd\
    A:\nod_upd\
    B:\nod_upd\
    C:\nod_upd\
    D:\nod_upd\
    E:\nod_upd\
    ...
    ...
    G:\nod_upd\

    (basically, one for each windows drive).

    Once you select the drive your folder is on, you can then click the "update now" button and the updates load to the offiline workstation.

    Its okay, dont worry - im not accusing you of piracy :p

    I just believe that is the reasoning behind not making their updates publicly available :)

    Short answer: No you cannot download and update manually

    Long answer: No, you cannot download and update manually, but considering the PC you mention is not connected to the net, you should not need to worry about keeping the AV up to date. Unless you download things elsewhere and transfer them to your machine? In that case, the AV solution on the PC that is connected to the net should ensure that everything you download is safe.

    I hope this helps :)

    Edit: webyourbusiness' reply is more helpful - if you can get access to another machine with NOD32 installed - and a multi-user-license.
