On my system NOD32 is set to automatically update virus definitions but only offer program updates. I was running version 2.50.25 and even when I manually ran updates it said my system was up to date.

Today I went to the ESET website and was surprised to find version 2.51.26 posted.

I'm not sure what is going on with the automatic update system but it couldn't even find an update when I asked it to - if you run NOD32 you might want to check your version an update manually if necessary.

The download link is: http://www.nod32.com/index_dw.htm and you will need you susbcription user name and password.

I was on 2.50.something until fairly recently, and didn't notice much change when I updated to 2.51.26, so it does seem as if they don't bother you with the program update unless you really need it. (That's not to say that there isn't an important difference under the hood, but the website only has a warning to pre-2.5 users to get 2.5, so 2.51 doesn't seem particularly critical).

I think I prefer this, to be honest. McAfee was forever wanting a reboot after a program update, and I'll bet you most of those updates were completely pointless.

Just be nice to get some info on what is going on - especially if you manually hit UPDATE - why not pop up a window saying there is an update that fixes the following issues etc. That way you would at least know whether it was worth bothering.

Yeah, not telling you on a manual update is a tad strange. Ah well, at least they seem to be getting the important stuff right, so I guess we can't complain too much. <touch wood> smiley

Mine is
Virus databases:            automatic
Program components:    offer

Btw,
I check again and can't find record for automatic Program components update from the event log of NOD32...
I am sorry for rushing into conclusion that automatic update is working, I think I have manually updated it in mid April 2006. embarassed
