How to create update tasks

Updates can be triggered manually by clicking Update virus signature database in the primary window displayed after clicking Update from the main menu.

Updates can also be run as scheduled tasks. To configure a scheduled task, click 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 update task can be modified to meet your needs. In addition to the default update tasks, you can create new update tasks with a user-defined configuration. For more details about creating and configuring update tasks, see section Scheduler.
