  5. Expand Settings, select Rollback and Disable Updates for Next from the Action drop-down menu, and then select the duration of time to suspend modules updates on these client workstations. If you select Until Revoked, updates to clients will not resume until you manually re-enable them. We do not recommend that you suspend updates indefinitely unless instructed to do so by ESET technical support, since allowing your detection engine to become outdated can expose you to security risks.
