    Hi
    firstly thank-you for your previous help.
    Just a basic Q. When going to updates (manual again!!) exactly what does full and current mean? (This may sound silly)
    Are both updated to the same date?
    Do I only need to do full update?
    If I don't update for a couple of weeks, do I then use only current.
    I hope this Q is not too dumb! (I also have the same issue with AVG (with their multiple update bin files))
    I usually just download everything to be safe!
    Note this is not in respect to updating automatically within your program.
    Thanks
    Kim

    From http://www.ewido.net/en/download/updates/, it says:

    Daily Signatures (ewido-signatures-current.exe)
    This installer includes the newest signatures from the last 2-3 days.

    Full database (ewido-signatures-full-current.exe)
    This installer always includes the complete database of ewido anti-malware.
