    NOD 32 Version 3.0.657.0
    Sometimes it won't update & asks for Username & Password.
    After i insert these it updates.
    Now today it updated.
    What can the problem be ?

    Also:
    I have been running NOD for a month & it never says it blocked any attempts.
    How do i know it is running properly ?
    Before this i had Norton NAV & it did show blocked attempts.

    I would check to see if your firewall is blocking update attempts.

    You can test NOD32 by running the Eicar test file on this page:

    If you are prompted for a username and password again, they must have been altered in the registry somehow (e.g. if you used a registry cleaner).

    I never used a registry cleaner & because it updates sometimes,it's not the firewall

    Not necessarily. I would check your firewall logs to see if you have blocked packets. I have had a similar problem in the past.
