[KB85] Update ESET Products – check for latest product updates


By default, ESET products check every hour for new updates and are updated at least once a day with new detection engine and module updates.

See the current version of the Detection engine.

To check which version of a specific module is in place in your ESET product, access information about product modules in ESET Windows home products.
