ESET Smart Security system updates are critical to maintaining maximum security. The Update module ensures that the program is always up to date in two ways – by updating the virus signature database and updating system components.
The Username and Password is provided after purchasing ESET NOD32 Antivirus.
Information about the current update status can be found by clicking Update from the main program window. The current version of the virus signature database will be displayed and will inform you if an update is needed. Options include the Update virus signature database link to initiate the update process immediately, as well as basic setup options such as the username and password.
The Update window also contains details such as the date and time of the last successful update and the virus signature database number, which is also an active link to ESET’s website listing all signatures added within the given update.
Use the Activate… link to register with ESET and receive your authentication data.
