    The Regularly check program components option (Advanced setup, update, update, setup of Advanced setup...) will enable the Regular checking for latest product version scheduled task

    didnt see anything about that in scheduled task

    Hello,

    A Program Component Update (PCU) installs a new build of ESET's software. They occur infrequently (maybe 1-2× year, or less) when a build has been determined to be stable after a long term of testing and usage and contains no major issues which could adversely effect a customer. As I recall, the last PCU released was to upgrade customers running various versions of v3.0 to the latest release of the v3.0 code.

    Regular "signature" updates just download updates to (or new versions of) the modules used by the program component updates.

    For further information, please see the following:

    • ESET Knowledgebase #2400, "I received a 'Program Component Upgrade' message, what should I do?"
    • ESET Knowledgebase #2256, "What is the difference between a Virus Signature Database update and a Program Component Update (PCU)?"
    • Post #30 in this message thread.
    • Post #12 in this message thread.

    If you have any further questions, please let us know.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
