    all very well
    but I am being asked for a username & password
    so where do I get that??

    as the database is at 1.498 ..... so much for a trial version!

    From memory, just ignore the request and proceed with the installation.

    It will update itself to the latest definitions as soon as it is installed.

    username & password = credentials

    The username & password are needed for program updates NOT the virus definition updates. Just leave the username & password section blank and press continue.

    Also, if the virus definition database is 1.498, you probably have an old trial version. I would suggest you download the latest trial version per the instructions on the website.

    I didn't have any problems updating the trial version. What server do you have set in update setup?

    i have tried all in the list from u1.eset.com through to u4.eset.com and also tried choose automatically, all prompted for a password.

    I note in the help area-

    "After initial installation of the NOD32 Antivirus System, setting up the automatic Internet update is crucial to provide the maximum level of anti-virus protection. A valid username and password, issued by your vendor or distributor is needed to complete this process."

    I have not received a password.

    Provided you have more update servers available in the list, you must have the full version installed. This is one of the limitations of the trial version.

    Please check out what server is set in Update setup. If it is not set to Choose automatically, please select this option from the pull-down menu to prevent problems with updating.

    As Marcos mentions, this seems to be the full version, but with a limited username and password, for evaluation.

    If you want the trial version, I suggest that you either uninstall that version, and download the trial version from the website, or ask the distributor in your area if you can have a temporary username and password for evaluation.

    Best regards,
    Anders

    the TRIAL VERSION in question has come from your website!

    & it keeps asking me for a valid username & password

    and that's all I want

    but it's not that easy .... and NO I did not download the commercial version
