    Hi folks.

    I'm still running Nod32 AV version 3.0.621.0. I'll wait a little while before considering upgrading to version 4.

    Usually, the update messages Nod32 generates (I'm talking about the 10 or 15 second message window that appears in the lower right-hand corner of the screen) pertains to virus signature updates. But, the past few days, I've noticed my Nod32 generating quite a number of "Program Module updated" messages in that window. What does that mean?

    Thanks funkydude. I'm a curious fella...so hopefully you don't mind my asking:

    1) What do the Program Module Update messages mean?

    2) If they settle down, is there any harm not uninstalling/reinstalling? (In other words, is my security compromised if I do nothing for now?)

    1) It is the individual ESET applications. e.g. Anti-Virus scanner, Anti-virus cleaner, anti-stealth detector and such

    2) I'm not sure it will calm down, there was a bug when the update servers were having maintenance for v4 and some people downloaded a bad update.
