    if set NOD is checking whether is your system is missing updates published by MS. By clicking on the alert the MS update website should be opened. You can avoid such alerts either by disabling such or keep your system updated.

    You can always try to go to the MS update page directly to see if you indeed are updated.

    The link from the ESET product is just taking you to the Windows Update page. Once there it is up to you to install the updates. By clicking the link it resets the flag for Windows system update monitoring. When you reboot ESET checks again to see if you are missing any Windows system updates and the process starts over. To break the cycle you have two options. Actually install the available updates or turn off ESET's monitoring of these updates. To do the latter simply select, No updates from the drop down box shown in vtol's screen shot.

    Turn the ESET Windows Updates feature off, and visit Windows Updates on a regular basis assuming you have Automatic Updates turned off.
