I am gone all morning. After lunch I try to get on-line. The following happens: 1. My Internet connection (broadband) is not working 2. I reset my router and restart my computer 3. Online Armor detects NOD32 as a potential dangerous program 4. I instruct OA to allow the program to run as NOD is my AV 5. At the same time, the Windows Security reminder in my system tray tells me that my AV might be out of date 6. I open NOD32 and do an update 7. My firewall does not recognize the NOD32 Kernel update service. 8. I instruct my firewall to let NOD connect to the internet 9. NOD32 thern updates What could the problem be? I have had mny firewall, NOD32, and Online Armor working together seemlessly for months. I run Windows XP home SP2. Any ideas? Could NOD32 have been modified by a virus or trojan?
