    Hello,

    I use Nod32 4.0.437 under Windows Xp Sp3.

    I had an USB modem and Nod32 used to update automatically at the boot of my PC, then several times a day. In the update scheduler, the 3 boxes are ticked. Everything was OK.

    I now have a new ISP and an Ethernet modem. The automatic updates no longer happen so I must manually update.

    Can anyone help me. Thank you.

    I have cleared the 'cache' (from the update panel) and it updated automatically to definition 4318 from 8/8/2009...
    Hope it will continue and that was the problem.

    Hello Fidelius,

    Clearing the update cache is a good fix. Please let us know if the issue returns.

    Thank you,
    Richard

    Hello Rmuffler,

    The automatic update occurs within one hour. There is still an annoyance yet.
    When I power on my Ethenet modem and it connects to Internet, the update does not start at once (unlike my old usb modem) so I have to wait about one hour or do it manually.

    Thank you for replying.

    ESET NOD32 Antivirus will check for updates every hour by default. If you wish to check for updates after logon do the following:

    When you open the program, change the Display to Advanced mode in the bottom left corner. Then click Tools -> Scheduler and check the box next to Automatic update after user logon.

    NOTE: The load time upon logon may take longer after enabling this feature because the program will perform this action for every logon.

    Thanks,
    Richard

    [SOLVED] New ISP, new modem= no more automatic updates

    I have found why Nod did not update at once after starting my computer.
    I must first power on my ethernet modem, wait for it to etablish an internet connection and after, power on my PC.

    Re: [SOLVED] New ISP, new modem= no more automatic updates

    This works because the ESET scheduler tries to update as soon as you log in, not when an internet connection is detected. So this means that if the internet is not active when you log in, the update will fail. This is how the task is meant to work.
