I just installed the trial version of NOD32. The virus definitions are back in August. I am trying to do an update but repeatedly get a server connection failure. Doing a forum search I have found threads that say paying customers take place over trial customers. But I have been trying repeatedly over the past half hour, I would say at least 30 times. Could it be something else? I currently am not running a firewall program. I connect to the Internet via DSL and a router but do not/have not had any other connection issues. Despite the statement that paying customers get precedence, I am skeptical to buy the product if I cannot get it to connect to the update servers. Edit: I see that you cannot manually download the virus signatures from the Nod32 web page. This is a bummer as well.
