    Hello, I am using the trial version of NOD32 on windows Vista 64 bit. and I am wondering how often the databases actually update because the last time I did an update check there were three database releases and at that time the latest was from yesterday. I was able to get it updated manually but I am just wondering why it isn't doing it automatically.

    from my experience it auto updates 2-3 times a day, but it might just have been inbetween update check intervals that they had an update ready, so wen u manually checked, it was there to download, but it wuldve been downloaded automatically at the next interval

    hmm ok that is what I was wondering. because two updates had been released prior to the 5011 update and it wasn't even touched. where as I think a couple of days ago I had no problem in in the automatic updates as it got them when they came out. I don't know if it is because it is a trial version that they aren't coming right away or what but the intervals are a little worrysome to say the least. also I was wondering when do the program modules update?

    Also the Trial version is not on the priority list to get updated first, the paid version always gets updates first as far as I know! An ESET Mod can confirm!

    Typically, the virus signature database updates from one to four times daily.
    You scheduler should poll for updates every sixty minutes, this is a default setting. Check your scheduler settings, if they are incorrect they should be adjusted to suit this criteria.

    Have things change since your first post? If not wait for an ESET MOD to answer your query!

    All the Best with your Trial and hope you upgrade to the full version!

    So things are updating fine now and regularly? I've used NOD32 for more than 7 years and always will! But never the Trial version so I'm curious!

    yeah I was surprised earlier to find that 5009,5010 and 5011 were released. and my last signature database that files were scanned on was 5008. didn't know until I checked the database even that those 3 had been released:s

    I do know that on the trial version the components aren't updated just the signatures.

    ir isn't I updated manually the first time around and that worked fine because I just had a restart. now that 513 has been issued, I click on update and it says update not needed signatures are current. which is the same message I was getting yesterday with the three updates even though they were already released. now here is the funny thing. if I restart the computer, the update will go through fine.

    Okay I finally got it to update manually. so it is now on 5013
