You're lucky it was only 4 PCs :)

I got to the office and over 10 clients were down, have been restarting servers all morning. Good work ESET!!!

Awhhhhhh Thats a possible reason this thing wouldn't go on the internet first thing this morning - real strange, no error messages. Went and had breakfast, rebooted, and all was fine with a new update of Nod as well.

At least they fixed the problem fast.

Virus Signature Database update 5419 was released .

Mines still on 5410, doesn't update until Sunday.
Lucky for me.

Yup, all our clients had problems if they got to work too early and got the faulty 5418 def.
Some missed it as they only turned on their machines after 5419 had been released.
It seemed to effect some computers more than others.

mine's stuck on 5417

anyone else?

03-09-2010, 10:23 PM
Mine updated to 5419 without any problems.

04-09-2010, 08:29 PM
Ours are all 5421 currently

Good to know it isn't just Comodo that does things like this!

(Remember the one that caused the XP start menu to not respond half the time?)

Dont think i had any problems with 50 odd clients and 1 server (touch wood)
Did have the odd pc that could browse the network but not get on the net, a reboot fixed them, now running 5425.

My Nod32 is still showing the red eye, even theough it shows the most recent update. I think my Nod32 is still not good - what do they suggest - a complete reinstall?

Sarel. Open Nod, check the protection status, it should have the reason it wont work, like cannot register or something

It says it can't update the virusfile - although the file in memory (below the warning) is the latest one (dated 5/9 I think).


07-09-2010, 09:55 AM
Try running a manual update. As of 8.55am mine shows 5429

07-09-2010, 10:05 AM
Will do later tonight.

When I got home last night the b*gger has sorted it out by itself - update5429. Wonder if my problems (microfreezes) are connected to it?
