    Hi,

    Any plans to occasionally release a cumulative (i.e., complete) signature update, to replace the zillion or so incremental files we've accumulated? ;)

    Thanks, Infinity, but not quite what I had in mind. I did try it, and all it does is wipe all the sig files, which I could (probably) do manually.

    Updating again took forever, as expected -- and the end result was simply the hundreds of incremental files back again, right back where I started.

    As its web-page accurately suggests, it's obviously intended as a repair tool (for, e.g., corrupted files), not for cleanup.
