    I am using a monitoring programs on my computers in order to notify the user about actions needed to be taken in order to keep the computer running smoothly. I would like to set a rule for an "not up-to-date antivirus program". Is there a way to know when your product, when installed on my computer, was last updated? I know your user-interface shows me that data, but I need another way (without using the UI) in order to create a rule, a way like looking on the signature file and see when it was last changed.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Best Regards,

    Windows Security Center built-in Microsoft Windows XP,Vista and 7 is made exactly for this purpose.

    Additionally , for your rule , you may have a look at em0**_32.dat file located in C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus or C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security - when it was last updated. I am not 100% this may help you
