    Today, when I do a manual update of DrWeb, the updater shows a lot more activity than is usual. After about 10 seconds the updater shows "Connection Interrupted" (see screenshot below). The "About" on DrWeb shows the last update as being 7/31/2007 (yesterday), so I guess it really was an interrupted connection. :doubt:

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    It was a checksum mis-match. I notified DrWeb support & they fixed it.

    I suppose I should already have known this but I just now discovered that DrWeb's Tech Support has its OWN WEBSITE.

    At that site you can...

    *Submit a support ticket

    *Send an email to request support

    *Submit a virus

    *Grab a free copy of DrWeb CureIt

    *Access DrWeb FAQ

    *...and do several other handy actions.

    Very handy 2 know!:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    Hi bellgamin
    Thanks for that link, I almost forgot about it (but then I always forget to take my shadow with me) lol :D
    Welcome back CSJ
    I sent them a problem with spiderguard being very takative with a popup when going to "beta.mail.yahoo.com". I think it is a FP, but they have not replied as yet, but I will give them time.
    Cheers :D
