    I've noticed that with NOD32, whenever I boot up my computer, ESET tries to update before my computer connects to the Internet. This means that usually I have to go in manually later to update definitions. Can something be done, for example, looking at the sequence of start up programs on my computer, to ensure that ESET updates automatically on start up?

    I believe the setting change you want is one that will be similar to what we recommend for those with a dial-up connection. It checks first for an internet connection and then automatically updates only when it recognizes a connection is established. Here's the KB Article describing the procedure to make the change:

    kb.eset.com/esetkb/SOLN728&ref=wsf

    As you can see, it points out dial-up connection but this should also work in your case, when ESET attempts to update the VSD before an interent connection is established.

    Thanks. I'll take a look at the article. I have a pretty fast DSL connection, so not really sure why this is happening. But I'll take a look and see if there is any useful info.

    Edit: Just looked. It looks like a pretty simple adjustment to make in the scheduling are, where you uncheck automatically check for updates and instead check austomatic update after user logon.
