Two readers (Pierre Talbot and Yvon Couture) have reported an identical problem with the March 97 Virus Definitions for SAM 4.x. Using SAM version 4.0.8 on a PCI-based Mac, SAM will not open. Instead, they get an error message that says: "The SAM Virus Definitions file is invalid." This did not happen with the February update. Interestingly, both readers are from Quebec - although I doubt that this is relevant to the problem (indeed, several U.S. readers have now confirmed this!; one reader found that reinstalling the SAM application and extension got things working).
