    I've just noticed that my windows security center is complaining that my NOD32 has "reports that it might be out of date"?!?!

    NOD32 is currently at definition version 1.659 - so puzzlement is my first reaction... any ideas?

    Do`t know where you are located but your system clock may be off. Depending on when the screen shot was taken, compared to when you posted, compared to where you are located. o_O

    I've seen this before, just out of the blue on a clients machine, tried uninstalling and reinstalling NOD32 without success. The only solution found is to reinstall Service Pack 2.

    Cheers :D

    When was the last time you updated prior to this definition version 1.659 ?

    The alerts of this nature are somewhat controlled by the interaction between Microsoft Security Center folks and the 3rd party software....Nod in this case. They both come to an agreement in regards to what time frame an alert is issue....which could be a week, month....etc. Perhaps you were in that twilightzone timeframe :doubt:

    Thanks for the suggestions - I'm not going to bother trying reinstalling service pack 2 just yet though ...

    On the date/time - I just checked, I use NNTP and it was up to date, so I don't think it's a case of the date/time being off - although I was playing with the day earlier today in the windows date/time - so that might have had SOMETHING to do with this.

    On the previous updates, this machine updates directly from Eset - it's my personal machine and I use it to prompt me when to update the website with updates from Eset - so it has to be kept up to date.

    This one has my scratching my head big time too... before I know it, I'm going to be COMPLETELY bald... ;)

    In the end, this may be the only choice as we found out (I went bald trying to find a solution), and this was the advice given at the time from the Eset Developers.

    Cheers :D

    If I was betting with BS's money....I would say that was a real good possibility and if it settles down now that you have finished mucking with the date/time....perhaps it will clear up considering Eset will be forthcoming with another update soon.

    could also disable the Windows Security Centre warning for virus protection. Got along OK updating anti virus software before MS introduced this feature.

    well I checked, double-checked and triple-checked the date/time - and did a reboot - nothing - windows still thought that NOD32 was out of date. So I got on with some work and decided to ignore it... figuring that my ability to ignore problems in the real work might work on this "phantom" problem that I had on this computer... nope... it's still there.

    Anyway - I rebooted again after slugging my machine by spooling a 1gb print file - and the thing has disappeared!!! ie, my windows now thinks that NOD32 is up to date, and the red-shield of shame has gone... I 'ate windows... ;)

    "Attached Thumbnails"

    That is what I see in the initial post in this thread. How do I get to see the actual screen shot or picture?
