which I like very much - is that the database updates without saying that it is doing so. Thus, the hard drive makes all kinds of noise, other stuff is loading slowly for a few seconds, and I'm wondering if a virus is going to take the computer down and is in the process of wiping my hard drive. Sometimes I realize what is going on, sometimes not. A little pop-up would be very helpful. Then I would just wait for NOD to finish and not reach for my gun.
