Updates can be triggered manually, by selecting the option Update virus signature database in the information window displayed after clicking on the Update option.
Also, updates can be run as scheduled tasks – configuration of a scheduled task is performed under Tools > Scheduler. By default, the following tasks are activated in ESET NOD32 Antivirus:
- Regular automatic update
- Automatic update after dial-up connection
- Automatic update after user logon
Each of the aforementioned update tasks can be modified to meet the user’s needs. Aside from the default update tasks, the user can create new update tasks with a user-defined configuration. For more details about creating and configuring update tasks, see the chapter Scheduler
