    Hi All,
    Im currently running ESS, if it look to Help->About it says im running the following:-

    Version 3.0.621.0

    Virus signature database: 3020 (20080411)
    Update module: 1023 (20080229)
    Antivirus and antispyware scanner module: 1108 (20080325)
    Advanced heuristics module: 1070 (20080212)
    Archive support module: 1075 (20080314)
    Cleaner module: 1026 (20080228 )
    Personal firewall module: 1038 (20080402)
    Antispam module: 1006 (20080103)

    Now, always update product components is selected in the update section of advanced setup and from what I can tell the latest version is 3.0.650.0 and the version previous to that is 3.0.642.0.

    So am i supposed to check every now and then for the latest versions (im hoping not) or is my automatic update screwed?

    So there is no "automatic update" for this then? I have to manually install it?

    Automatic program component updates (PCU) are issued twice per year in average. For version 3 there has not been a PCU released yet, but we'll release it in the near future, depending on when some known problems are resolved.

    Awhile ago I read some thread with the arguement behind making customers remember to check to see if there's an update for the actual program itself but I don't think I agreed with it. Can someone point me to a more current explanation as to why we need to do this?
