    I downloaded from that Russian site and it looks to be the same file I got with the auto download.
    Hopefully they just have the wrong figure on the web page. I don't like thinking I'm almost 100 viruses short in my database.
    I too show 31194

    It's the 21st now, and I haven't seen an update since the 19th. I'm wondering if they are still fighting server problems, or if something is amiss.
    Anybody know anything about this?

    root,

    DialogueScience/Dr.Web only updates on working days; only on special ocassions during the weekend.

    That said, while they are still rebuilding (site etc.) the update server(s) do function as usual. Could well be, as a result from the "total breakdown", update releases have been temporarily slowed down.

    I'll contact them - and don't expect an answer before Tuesday. Keep you posted!

    regards.

    Problems solved; auto-update works as it should now. See the Update Alerts Forum as well ;).

    regards.
