    When I accidentaly set eset's default folder into "hide" mode it stops my NOD32 v2.12.3 from receiving updates. it pops up error message showing that the server is down. At first, i thought my AV is corrupted or its just a conflict with other programs but its not. I'm using windows xp professional SP1 with some hot fixes, a look&stop firewall, & processguard installed. any updates regarding this flaw? i hope this post helps other NOD32 users. (sorry for my bad english) ty. ;)

    I never tryed to set the folder properties to HIDE. But in a way it doesn't make sense when updates aren't received anymore. For the running system the folder is still visible.

    Did you use a special tool to change the propertie to HIDE?

    However... I'll try out if I can reproduce this issue.. I have to wait until I am home though.. and until a new update is available... :)

    No, im not using any special tools, just the windows properties "hide" option.

    Aside from NOD32, spybots search&destroy also stops receiving updates when the folder is set to "hide". kindly verify this bug. thank you!

    Just curious - why do you want to hide the folder of a working application?

    is this a shared computer, or one where a number of users might not have the best intentions of the machine in question?

    Can't you setup policies and logins/password to prevent users from removing programs or altering them?
