    Good Lord! That's huge! I'm still on 1.990 and clicking update shows no updates. Just a matter of time I guess.

    A few users have seen this, though to this point they have been using the Trial version. I'd say wait and see what happens over the next 24hrs...

    Cheers :D

    Could this indicate that NOD32 uses automatically created signatures (i.e., not hand-picked signatures)?

    Hi Neil,

    I'm not sure whether I understand you right (sorry if I misunderstood you), but are you still using NOD32 Version 1?

    In that case you might read this announcement from ESET:

    http://www.nod32.com/

    Quotes:

    Eset to discontinue the update of NOD32 Version 1

    Jan 5 th 2005

    Eset, producer of NOD32 antivirus, announced today discontinuing of virus definition updates for its product NOD32 Version 1. All the current users using the NOD32 Version 1 are advised to upgrade to the current NOD32 Version 2. The following document describes the steps to upgrade your NOD32 Version 1 to NOD32 Version 2. To find out what version of NOD32 you are currently using, click here.
    The upgrade to NOD32 Version 2 is free for all the current NOD32 subscribers. If you are not able to use the NOD32 Version 2, please, let us know so that we can assist you.

    --- end quotes ---

    So if you're indeed still using Version 1, I would strongly advice to upgrade to Version 2 !!!

    Looks like last minute cramming for AV-Comparatives' February test if you ask me :D

    Good luck Eset. I hope you can beat Norton this time :p

    When you look at the sigs you will see that the vast majority are different versions of recently released pests

    A lot of them are malicious programs/adware/spywares which I am very glad to see Eset targetting so well

    Hi,

    Well a friend of mine using for 2 days now the trial version would be more than happy to be able to update.He keeps getting the message your version is already updated and he has only the 1990.Not a good image for the" best AV in the world" unfortunately :(

    That is a very common problem Claire and isn't usually Eset's fault

    I have the same frequently as My ISP uses a cache system and it retains the old update in it's cache rather than letting you fetch the new one from Eset's servers directly

    I get the same problem with NOD, TDS and Adaware and have to use a specific proxy when updating to get round this problem

    Hi Dvk01,

    Thanks for your answer.

    Is there by any chance a way to download an update file and manually install it?

    Regards

    most of these are...
    AOL
    Obsolete DOS-days viruses
    Win 3.x viruses
    Hacking tool [famed denial of service tools, DCOM exploiters, some IIS attackers, flooders, nukers....]
    A number of entries marked "PSW" - I"m stumped.

    PSW are those trojans that stealth passwords and send it to the author of the malware.
