I'm not familiar with all of your programs but the best way to back up the updates for each of those programs is to download the most recent "manual" update installer for the program and save it. (In order to stay current though, you'll need to frequently download and backup each of the newest manual update installers.) Not all antimalware programs have such a manual updater but many do..
AVG Antispyware has the full definition file which can be downloaded at the site below. (It's not perfect as a correct download from the internet will also install engine updates and such but the download below will allow you to install the definitions and run a current scan.):
Likewise, a few Spybot S&D updates, such as the "Detection Updates" and "Tools Updates" can be downloaded from the link below:
Windows Defender manual updates:
AVG Antivirus Free:
As to SpywareBlaster, I don't use it so try checking their website.
Hope this helps.
WindowsXP Professional, SP2
HP a1253w desktop
AVG Free 7.5.476
I have a back-up of these programs, but they do not include the many updates that I have installed since I installed the initial programs. My computer recently crashed and I had to reinstall everything. It was very time consuming to install all of the updates. so
I would like to know if it is possible to back-up the updates also. I noticed that AVG Free, for instance, has files in C: Windows/Programs, and in Documents and Settings/Application Data. If I back-up all of these files will they include all of the updates that have been installed, or do I just need to back-up certain files?
Any help will be appreciated.
