Nod has only just been reinstalled and appears hasn't worked fully since reinstall.
NOD32 Antivirus 5 seemed to be working but the Virus signature database cant seem to run fully.
It appears from the Vista reinstall date that Under Scheduler, Log maintenance, regular automatic and system scan have worked, but Update Virus signature database says Update has not been run yet.
It has tried to run automatically going round and round and its now changed from orange to red. Maximum protection is not ensured Virus Signature is out of date After googling I realised that Windows Defender could be the problem as it would have been reactived by default on the Vista reinstall. But on NOD when I select update and manually try to start Update Virus signature database nothing happens.
Also just tried options Smart scan and Frequently used and both say failed to run scan. Ive left on Windows Firewall as I read that NOD32 Antivirus 5 doesn't have a firewall, but Eset Smart Security does, and I believe I have the former.:thanks Windows Defender comes automatically with Vista, which I have now stopped.
I have checked the licence codes just now ( sunday night 7.05pm) and they are accepting From Eset as they should, doesn't expire till October.
Something has changed since it was returned and I left .
I can only go by what it says in Scheduler, which I only looked at today after icon turned red from orange All boxes ticked for below Log maintenance last run 24/6 Regular automatic update last run 24/6 System Scan last run 22/6 Automatic update Last run 8/6 Below not ticked Automatic update after user logon no run date Automatic startup file check (user logon) last run 7/6 Automatic startup file check (virus sig database) no run date When I select home "Maximum protection is not ensured" Virus database not been updated for some time I haven't downloaded any updates for anything.
The icon is going round now and the update bar says "update progress 0%" it just stays like that then stops.
I am thinking cause Defender is also antivirus so 2 antivirus it clashed ith it, and even though I have just tirned it off to day computer may require restarting to fix it, which I'll try tomorrow. Heres how it was set, which is the way I do it as standard.
