Hi,

Does anyone know please what rules should be created in Windows Firewall in order for NOD32 Antivirus to update, considering that all outbound trafic is blocked, and all the rules should be created manually.

Thank you.

I would add ESET NOD32's executables to exclusion.

For curiosity, why do you block all outgoing traffic? It causes a lot more hassle than any little protection it can give.

For me, having to give permission to every program that access the internet (even if I only have to do it once) is bothersome, and if you have to use the Windows Firewall to block something malware sending out of your computer then it means you are already infected, and your antivirus is not doing its job.

Better to surf safely with caution and security software instead of obsessing with the little details of something that offers very little effect once you are infected, no?

Maybe it is a incomprehensible ambition :) At least as an experiment it could be interesting :)

Until now, I've done my best to achieve the experiment results :)

 

If all the OS updates, OS in general, and the rest of the needed application work :) Hopefully everything will be ok in the future also.

 

Probably NOD32 Antivirus is one of the last goals to touch in this hole attempt :)

 

Hopefully after I will add manually all these: http://support.eset.com/kb332/?viewlocale=en_US

as rules in the Windows Firewall, NOD32 will also function properly....

 

Any ideas please what else could go wrong in the future with this "adventure" ?:)

 

All the best.
