    Dear Developers!

    If the network cable is unplugged, and NOD32 naturally cannot connect to update server, it is NOT a "connection failure" and there is NO need to display that most annoying error message in the centre of the screen.

    Thanks.

    I agree, I could live with a message like:

    [MOVE]He gerardwil, I don't have a connection failure but you unplugged the network cable :p[/MOVE]

    how can Nod or any other program tell whether it is a physical "fault" like a network cable unplugged by user deliberately or something blocking update or whether the cable has accidentally come unplugged and yes that happens very often

    it is doing as it is designed to do, warn you that the connection to the update server is not possible

    Change the connection type to dial up if you lose sleep over it.

    That's actually quite easy. Applications can even tell Windows to check if there is a connection before making any attempts at contacting servers etc. and I'm guessing NOD is using it when dial-up is selected.

    Here's an example: www.nod32sse.com/CC.zip Block it with your firewall, unplug the cable etc.
