New virus signature files for F-Prot Antivirus

In reply to: UPDATES - August 16, 2004

New virus signature files for F-Prot Antivirus have been
released. These files are dated 16 August 2004 and contain
detection for W32/Mydoom.R@mm and other new threats.

Tip: As most users set the Updater to download new virus
signature files on the hour (e.g. 9:00 or 16:00) you can
avoid the heaviest download traffic and optimize your
download speed by setting the Updater starting time to any
number of minutes past the hour (e.g. 9:17 or 15:33).

In reply to: Thanks, Bugbatter :)

Regarding this post: http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6132-0.html?forumID=32&threadID=33233&messageID=384041
You indicate 3115 items. I check for updates weekly for Spywareblaster, and sometimes seems to be downloading something, then says "Update Successful".
Still I only see 3022 Items in database. Thought something was wrong, so uninstalled, and reinstalled SBlaster. Checked for updates, and still 3022.
Hoping you can bail me out again here Happy

Ray - there are NO dumb questions !

In reply to: Marianna, maybe another dumb question..

3115 items is for win98 and winme - it is very well possible xp and 2000 have a different number ...... let's see if someone shows up who has XP - as I 'assume" you have XP - right??

If nobody appears - will have to find someone here who has XP as my daughter has my XP at the moment Sad

Re: Ray ...... as Mark has the same ........

In reply to: Ray ...... as Mark has the same ........

I check for updates at least once a week, and as mentioned, "something" appears to download, then says "Update Sucessful".
Sorry for omitting my OS, which is XP Home.
In the SpywareBlaster folder a file named sbversion.txt appears, with the date of current update download, but my items in database remain at
3022.
Is there anything I need to do after downloading updates? Reboot makes no difference.
All items are enabled, including Firefox.
