    My NOD32 logs are full of quarantined/deleted programs. My CCTV system, many of my SQL servers, tons of crap?

    Is nod now a virus itself? From the forums it looks like I am not alone.

    Is there an official response from ESET? This is very very bad.

    You are not alone. I use NOD32 personally on 4 machines, but manage a network of 1700 computers at a campus which do not use NOD32.

    I am glad I am not in your shoes today, but know the feeling all to well.

    I have 3 machines which are up, but not functioning. They refuse to update past the bad pattern file. How can I remotely force this? Telling them to update in the RA console does not work. Can I do something at the file system level?

    Ok, so I got one of these machines updated to 3122 and restored the deleted file. But it just gets hung up at applying computer policies.

    What's the fix? What else has Nod done?

    Alfmanuel's post seems to be fixing mine..

    Rename the nod32.007 to .old and all the files in the antivirus subdirectory updated today to .old -- this has worked on some, but not on others. Others are requiring a removal of Nod32 and then a reinstall.

    Considering we have offices that I support all over, this means $$$.
