    That is correct. You have the current definitions installed.

    Correct. However, the about conext within S&D does not always display the current definition updates. The best way to verify that you have the updates installed is to navigate to "..Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Includes.." as gerardwill posted.

    That is one of the drawbacks of a manual download....because Spybot's download.ini file does not get properly updated as far as the ReleaseDate entry.

    [includes.zip]
    UpdateDate=2004-03-04
    InstallDate=2005-03-22
    ReleaseDate=2005-03-20

    So... POOF! -- with Notepad I change the ReleaseDate manually to 2005-04-07. Is muy okay, no? (Actually I use Metapad instead of Notepad.)

    Sayo de gozaimashita.
