    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.
