How to change Windows Update Notifications within ESET Version 8

Description: This guide will show you how to change which level of Windows Update Notifications ESET Version 8 will notify you about. This guide applies to both ESET NOD32 Antivirus Version 8 and ESET Smart Security Version 8. ESET notifies users when Windows Updates are available while updating its own virus signature database. This guide will show you how to make changes to these notifications.

  1. Locate the ESET icon in your system tray.

  5. From the dropdown menu, select the level of updates that you wish to be notified about. Critical updates is the most commonly selected choice. Remember, these notifications are for Windows operating system updates - ESET NOD32 will still continue to update automatically, independent of this selection.
