Hang in there fella's "it won't happen overnight but it will happen" according to Rachel Hunter :-) i found an app called nod32 view. if you point nod32 to that server manually it will not update.it searches all the NOD servers to see which ones have the up to date files. so somehow IMO it is routing from: getting authenticated and then d/l from one the other servers. It seems NOW after downloading the massive 11mb signature database, that whenever I want to update my NOD32 i have to actually physically press the update button a million times.
Ive had a few calls now from clients, seems to be widespread.Overall I think it's a very good program, and am happy to pay for it.
