On 1/27/2006 - I updated my Antivir free program to the Version 7 -- I have had a problem with the updater ever since and I cannot seem to fix it? On the program 'status' section my program states: virus definition file V6.33.00.172, 1/27/06 seach engin V6.33.00.31, 1/27/06 When I click on the 'start update' button, the program looks as though it is attempting to update -- it goes through several servers [1-7], takes upwards of 8-10 minutes [thank goodness for broadband], and then comes back to tell me "your locak data re uptodate try again" -- and shuts down! Thinking that purhaps I had downloaded a corrupt file -- I downloaded the program from another mirror - uninstalled the first udated program, installed the new etc., and attempted to update again - several times all with the same results I am not a computer whiz - therefore, I no longer know what to do. I am limited by finances, and cannot update my system beyond its Wins98se state -- that limits what anti-virus programs I can use -- many if the free programs out there have dropped Wins98se from the versions they will work on. So, would someone with more knowledge in this area - please give me some pointers? I cannot seem to get past the Germany language on the AntiVir support page either -- so, please do not send me there, as I cannot even get a post going.
