System tray icon is exclamation mark instead of the usual Eset-icon "[ e ]"

I'm currently using NOD32 under Windows 7 64 Bit and I'm very happy with it.


I have just a minor issue: After installation and forseveral days, the windows tray icon of NOD32 anti virus was the usual Eset-icon, an "[ e ]". But since a couple of days, the tray icon has changed to a white exclamation mark in a blue-filled circle. It looks like there some kind of warning or message waiting, but I can't see anything.


(Please see the attached image.)


Is there any "reset" I can do to get the normal Eset-icon back?



Thanks a lot for your help!

Open the ESET gui and check the Protection status pane for more information about the notification.


Thanks a lot for your quick answer!


You were absolutely right - in the main GUI, there was a note about Windows updates I had not installed. I did it and the notification icon changed to the normal NOD-icon.


I did not notice the warning about the system updates, because NOD32 showed a really big green checkmark in the top of the GUI and the notice-text itself was also green and bold - indicating "everything is alright", maybe this could be changed in future versions :-)



Thanks a lot for your help
