    In layman’s terms it means that Nod32 is unable to connect to the servers to update and it is advising you of such. There are many reasons for this error, such as a Wireless connection still establishing its connection, or a USB Broadband Modem still establishing a connection while Nod32 attempts to update...

    In short, no, so long as Nod32 does actually update (I would need to see further logs to confirm this).

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D

    That makes sense. While I unisntalled and re-installed some other security programs I use (took off Spywareguard, downloaded new version of Spybot and implemented the tea timer), I had my internet activity shut down.

    Case closed, thanks.
