11/28/200 DrWeb sig update 43216.vdb failed for me. Did it fail for you, too? if so, please help us to get DrWeb to fix the problem quickly by sending a support message to... firstname.lastname@example.org Be sure to include your key file number. Doing so seems to get quicker action by DrWeb folks. Your key file number is near the top of the panel that appears when you right-click the spider in your system tray. aloha...... bellgamin ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I tried again 10 minutes later. Now it's okay. I apologize for the false alarm, but it really DID fail a while ago.
