Hello All, Hopefully this has not been posted before, I have tried searching. I have been using NOD now for about 6 - 7 weeks, and am very happy, previously a die-hard NAV/NIS user (NIS is still on the server computer). Over the last few days I noticed that the NOD icon was not in the SYSTEM TRAY where I expected it to be. I fired up NOD from the ALL PROGRAMS entry and it seemed up-to-date with the virus definitions and seemed to be doing the background scanning. I have NOD set up to do a scan on the HDs at 1830 daily. Though I am usually with carers (I am a wheelchair user) I know it has run as it keeps detecting one of ZoneAlarm's components as a threat, which it has not been doing, I also did not see the virus definition update messages you usually see. ZAP has also disappeared, but on testing the SHIELDS UP on the CRC site it appears that I am still stealthed; so either ZAP is active or the hardware firewall/router is actually doing its job. <grin> Is there a way of me testing whether NOD is active? I am not opposed to reinstalling, but do not want to if it is not necessary.
