    I would appreciate some advice. My brother is away on hols, and has left me his laptop. It is runing Vista SP1. It has been working without issue. I have not used it for more than a week. When I turned it on today, I have Windows Security Center saying that ESET NOD32 antivirus system 2.70 reports that it might be out of date, ESET NOD32 antivirus system 2.70 has not provided Security Centre with a program to fix this issue.
    When I go to Control centre and update.
    It says
    server (choose automatically)
    Virus signature database update: offer
    Program component update: offer
    LAst update 13/07/2008
    Version of virus signature database 3263(20080711).
    When I run update now, it says it is updated.

    Is it uptodate, and how then do I resolve the Windows Security Centre report.

    Thanks

    I do not particularly wish to upgrade to 3 at this time. It is also unclear whether the upgrade to 3.0.669 is free of charge or not.

    The security issue cannot be resolved in this way, It arises simply because it detects that ESET might be out of date. We know that NOD is out of date because I am stuck on version 3263 and cannot update.

    What I would like to understand, is how it is envisaged that I could get the virus signature database update, when all manual attempts simply report that the program is uptodate. Do I keep trying manual update every 2 seconds, or do I leave it on automatic? The machine has not been turned off for 2 days and no changes are detected. Is this what other people are reporting?

    In the Setup > Advanced Setup > Antivirus and antispyware > Update settings area, have you changed the Update server: from default of "Choose automatically” to a particular server and if so which one ?

    Also, if you don't mind saying, are you using any p2p ip\url blocking such as peerguardian or bluetack ?

    Appreciate you dropping by. Thank you.

    I believe the answers to your questions are both "no".

    However, I may need further instruction please.

    I struggle to follow your instructions:
    Setup > Advanced Setup > Antivirus and antispyware > Update settings

    Where are you starting from please?
    1. Setup in Nod32 On demand scanner or
    2. setup in Control Centre, Nod32 System setup, or
    3. Control centre, update, update, setup

    Whichever, I can not then find "antivirus and antispyware subset of Advanced.

    The "Choose automatically" option appears again Location, server, on the "Setup for Automatic update" screen which is accessed via Setup in option 3 above.

    I have no p2p ip\url blocking software whatsoever.
    The system was working fine, until I left it off for a week or so.

    It's been a long week and unusual amount of update issue threads o_O The various Eset forums have become a blur.

    cgoldman, I'm sorry for the interuption and mis-placement of instructions :blink: :ouch:

    Suddenly I feel very stupid. My NOD is running under Vista and simply does not look like the attachment, am I missing half the program, although it has been running for several months?

    I have in Program folder for ESET
    Help
    Nod32 control center
    Noder32
    Read me
    Uninstall

    Your screenshot shows that this computer has either trial or cracked/fixed version installed . ESET gives low priority on trial users so that when there is a server problems like the ones we notice these days , servers won't get overloaded from people using the program for free.

    You won't be able to update with that version these days because of the reasons I just wrote. :thumb:

    Well. this is interesting - and I get more red faced by the minute. I know this is my son's laptop, but he assured me it had been running NOD for a while.
    Are you really saying that trial versions cannot be updated. Can I establish if it is trial or cracked please. If latter I will remove it, hey presto! But if it is trial, then I am suprised the trial is prohibited from getting updates. But if you say that is so, I accept it, and need to move on.

    Very interesting ! :rolleyes:

    In the first post you write this is your brother's laptop , now in the last one you mention your son's computer . So where the truth is ?

    Trial users do get updates but in cases like these , they have low priorities when servers are busy. If he uses v3 , the situation would have been a bit different.
