And what is your question?

MBAM and Spybot (the second is not recommended any more by the mods of these forums) need updated definitions, just like your antivirus. No issue there.

I don't know about updates for Winrard. I use 7Zip (that's free and does read rar-files, so why pay?). But if it needs updates, why not do it? Firefox updates once a month, Google programs update automatically. Why care?
