    Even Rome wasn't built in a day. Its sample will be added to update 1.613 shortly.

    It's a quite weird problem which hasn't been reported by other NOD32 users that it updates twice to the same version. Maybe you could try downloading the NOD32 installer from our website (already has v. 2.000.9 incorporated), completely uninstalling NOD32, and re-installing it.

    I am NOT going to reinstall NOD32 again
    BUT to FORMAT and reinstall XP from scaratch again
    BUT heared that even after FORMAT original programs remain (like a ghost image) on the HD and can cause problems and some one suggested I need "killdisk" or similar program. Is this true
    Thanks

    I have seen the double updates with Spybot Search and Destroy, several times, though not with Nod32.

    FDisk and Format, then reinstall Windows will do the trick, you really shouldn't need to do anything else.

    Cheers :D

    I would think you've more than sufficiently made the point there's a problem with your Nod32 installation... But, then again... if I condemned every program I have seen with a problem in a particular installation, I would be hard put to come up with anything to install on a computer.

    There are innumerable causes for such things... a bad program install, a corrupted windows file the program accesses, some type of conflict with another program, needed dll file incorrectly incorrectly overwritten by another program, and so forth and so on.

    If you do decide to reinstall, it is sufficient to reformat with the XP install disk and then reinstall XP, there's no need for fdisk. There's also no need to worry about some type of ghost files left on the hard drive after the format.

    Take care... Randellx5

    visitor,

    Thanks for going to all that trouble. It's obvious there's something at hand here; no need to post more event logs - it will not contribute anything new to this thread.

    Re:Similar Update situation

    Paul -

    On 1/26, I d/l and installed Nod on my Win98 machine. For the first day or two, it updated 'normally' meaning that if there was not a new update, it stated all was complete. However, since then, it has done the repeat download thing with notification that update was successful. Next hour, it does it again.

    I have read the threads on the situation and have checked for other virii, correct server, etc. I assume it would not be a header problem over several updates.

    I'll not post an event log, if you're willing to trust me that it is as I say! ;)
    However, here is the "Info" list from the program in case that will help. BTW not complaining about the problem, rather just hoping to help! There seem to be a few more pressing issues for the AV community this week! :) HTH Richard

    Hi visitor,
    sorry if I overlooked this info here, but do you have the trial or full version installed?

    visitor Guest

    Thanks Marcos
    Trail version
    I'm being told that format is not enough (it doesn't wipe every thing)
    and offered an alternatives killdisk,lowlevelforamat(don't know what that is),SDelete,and GDisk. don't know what to do. can you recommend any. Is there a risk of leaving it updating every hour.
    Thanks again for caring
