    Hi,

    I installed the trial version of Nod 2.5 a week ago. Every time I try updating I get a message telling me that Nod is up to date and that there is no need to download new signatures. I've checked, the signature's date is a week ago, when I installed it.

    Is this because I've got the trial version ? Is it impossible to update with the trial version ?

    Thanks.

    It is possible but you should know that trial users have lower priority on ESET servers . Servers will first take care of the paid clients and later if possible will take care of the trial users . Most likely you couln't update because servers were busy which was normal a week ago . I suggest you open Control Center -> Update and press Update now some times to get the updates ;)

    If you buy NOD , use the paid version you will have no such issues

    Hi scalpas, welcome to Wilders.

    Please check the following:

    NOD32 Control Centre> Update> Setup> Server is set as "Choose Automatically".

    Click on Advanced and make sure LAN is set for ADSL/Cable or Dialup is set for Wireless/Dialup.

    Then check Proxy Server Setup> setup to make sure there isn't a tick in there (99.99% of people do not use a proxy).

    Then check that LAN servers connection> Setup is set to System Account (default).

    Beyond this the NOD32 should update unless a firewall is blocking Internet connection for NOD32.

    Cheers :D

    Hello! by the way what is the average update file size for NOD32?
    Edit: & what is the difference between Commercial & trial update file size?

    It depends, usually the size varies from 5 kB to 100 kB. An update of the whole engine takes place 3-4 times per year on average which is about 5-6 MB in size.

    There's no difference in size nor any other difference except that the trial version cannot be updated after the 30-day trial period.
