Howdy folks. Been a while since I've posted but since this is my home page so I am always here as a lurker. I wish there was a way to update manually as upon reinstalling NOD, see below, I am way behind on defintions, not good. Facts: I am behind a Linksys router. NOD32 antivirus system information Virus signature database version:1.1820 (20061020) Dated: Friday, October 20, 2006 Virus signature database build:8238 Information on other scanner support parts Advanced heuristics module version: 1.038 (20061019) Advanced heuristics module build: 1123 Internet filter version: 1.002 (2004070 Internet filter build: 1013 Archive support module version: 1.050 (20060926) Archive support module build version: 1176 Information about installed components NOD32 For Windows 95/98/ME - Base Version: 2.51.26 NOD32 for Windows 95/98/ME - Standard component Version: 2.51.26 NOD32 For Windows 95/98/ME - Internet support Version: 2.51.26 Operating system information Platform: Windows 98 Version: 4.10.2222 A Version of common control components:5.81.4916 RAM:384 MB Processor Pentium(r) III Processor I can access the internet, my P2P program can download, my download manager works, my ftp program works. Yes, I have read all the posts by blackspear in regards to update issues and have gone through them all. Yes, I have: - run LSPfix, reboot. -no issue there. -hit the buttons in Imon, fix network settings, then hit default button, reboot. -uninstalled NOD, reboot and reinstalled. Can't update. I use RegRun Gold and found that I had the 2 winsock files in as protected files so I removed them and rebooted and still can't update. I have done all of the above in various combinations too with no luck. I have some ports forwarded in my router for my P2P program but don't think that could be the issue. I have not unchecked the port forwarding and tried to update. I have not been infected by anything at all. Had some things blocked but no infections. I did a search at eset.com for help but couldn't find anything and here I am. This particular issue has never happenend before as this is a first. I am open to any and all ideas! thanks ahead of time!
