    DialogueScience, Inc. announces the release of the patched version - 4.28a - of  the popular anti-virus program Doctor Web for Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP, DOS/386, OS/2, Novell NetWare.

    The following changes and improvements have been made to the version 4.28:

    - errors occurring while checking files of more than 2 GB in length corrected;
    - mail files scanning algorithm improved;
    - format detection of some EServ mail files added;
    - the SpIDer Guard error causing system hang-up when accessing  files on network drives corrected;
    - in the Windows version of Dr.Web scanner the function of checking of start-up files is now activated by default. A command-line key for turning on /off the start-up files checking (/TS and /TS- respectively) added;
    - error causing, under some conditions, an abnormal termination of the Windows version of Dr.Web scanner when making an attempt to open the LOG file of Doctor Web corrected;
    - in console versions of the scanner errors when scanning files with special characters ("%" and other) in the file name corrected.

    Users of the GUI version (DrWeb for Windows) can download either a complete distributive file with the patched version or the patch alone, which can be downloaded (1.0 Mb) from our FTP site at
    ftp://ftp.dials.ru/dsav/english/drweb32/drw428p1.zip. Console versions can be downloaded as patched distributions.

    Hi  Paul

    After I upgrade, Drweb couldnot run.
    I go back to 4.28 now.


    In http://drweb.imshop.de/index_e.htm, http://www.drweb.ru/index/
    http://www.sald.com/
    the current version  is 4.28


    Anyone here upgrades successfully?

    Hi netsonic,

    Sure; upgrade worked like a charm. Did you perform the update using Spider/DrWeb?

    regards.

    I do not like this new trend to patch AV programs instead of coming out with an updated version. Too much chance for error in my opinion.  :mad:

    Root, you can download completely new 4.28a version 3.5 MB, or you can only download patch (1MB).
