Zorba the Geek Posted October 23, 2022 Share Posted October 23, 2022 (edited) Eset have ceased to supply updates for versions of NOD32 Antivirus below 10 on 19th September 2022. What to do? I love using version 8.0.319 because it retains the classic GUI, it is light on system resources, and it has some advanced features like anti stealth technology and advanced heuristics, so I would prefer to manually update it rather than upgrade to version 10. Here are some options I would like to discuss: Manually Update Version 8.0319. There are several sites that provide regularly updated NOD32 updates which can be found using a Google search for upd.ver. It is possible that servers for version 4 also include updates for versions 5,6,7, and 8. Here is the most recently updated one I could find. It contains hundreds of files with file names with the nodxxxx.nup format including those with the same file names as those in my installation except more recent. If I wanted to copy over files from this online archive to the AllUsersProfile\Application Data\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus\updfiles folder should I always choose files with file names the same as those I currently use? The file names of the contents of the updfiles folder were different when I first installed NOD32 with trial updates. Change over to the ESET Endpoint Antivirus and utilize offline updating and the updates provided for version 6.5 every three days by a certain Facebook user which I have decided not to link to. It may be necessary to use version 5 under XP. Upgrade to version 10 and either pay for a subscription or else try to copy files from an online archive to the updfiles folder. If using version 10 under Windows XP it means that some features will not work. It may be possible to edit the registry settings of version 8.0.319 to change the server to a location on your hard drive.
