    I have a bunch of these notices in my event log. Never seen this before. There is an odd symbol next to the event. I can't tell what the symbol is as it is too small (even with a magnifying glass)...maybe an exclamation point or a capital I..I can't tell).

    Plus, NOD32 has not tried to update since May 29 and it should be attempting every hour.

    Are you using a beta?

    How can you tell if / when NOD32 is trying to update? My defs were last updated on the 29th. Just tried to do a manula udpate, and got a message that my app is already up-to-date. My event log only indicates when updates occur. However, using PortExplorer, I can see that NOD32 has been checking for updates every hour since last update on the 29th..

    Hi,
    You have found one way, using Port Explorer, you could also configure ZA Pro to let you know when ever it connects. Its up to you what tools you use to check it.

    Ronjor,
    Yes, I am using a beta. It appears to be exactly the same as version 2 when you look at the information screen and the installed components and scanner supported parts are all the same as Version 2. However, support assures me that this is a beta with most of what will be in the beta that will soon be released publically.

    Dazed_and_Confused,

    I can tell that it is trying to update because I have this box set to notify before any updates, so when I look in the event log it shows errors connecting to the servers. It may be connecting sometimes and not showing that there was no update available though because if it connected successfully there would be no error to show and I haven't ever seen in the event log anything saying "update attempted, connection successful, no update available". It would be nice to see something like that except if we did and it was attempting once every hour then the event log would get full very rapidly.

    I have always wanted this same feature. I've got a big hard drive. 24 entries per day is OK by me. :)
