    I just installed NOD32 after having been infected with some spyware. I'm clean now, but I was wondering how well Nod32 plays with Windows Updates? Previously I've always thought that antivirus programs should be turned off while doing Windows Updates. Is this true for Nod32? I have noticed that I can deactivate Nod32, but upon re-boot it's active again. Is there any way I can have it stay deactivated upon reboot?

    TIA

    There shouldn't be any issues between the two?

    I NEVER deactivate NOD32. I keep Windows Update off until the monthly update arrives. I then turn it on via the control panel. When the update is completed, I turn it off.

    Why should I keep it on if updates occur only once a month??

    NOD32 does not have any issues with Windows Update though right?

    Occasionally MS release updates between the monthly release dates. Not often but it has happened.

    No issues in 1 and a half years.

    Sometimes i think these disclaimers about disabling AV etc goes back to old AV that might work on behaviour and decide the program / updates is acting suspiciously. Never understood it.
