    Hi all,
    After udating Drweb, I noticed that my Key date is 29.08.04,
    and my subscription date is 30.08.2003.
    Now, unless I'm totally losing my memory, I thought my key date was 2003.
    Can anyone tell me if I'm wrong, and if I'm not, why the date changed?

    Thanks in advance,
    Douglas

    I believe this is how DrWeb License works. If you open you .key file you would see 2 dates:

    Expires ( 1 year more longer then SubscriptionExpires)
    SubscriptionExpires

    So you can use your program one more year without interruption but won't be able to update or upgrade( After SubscriptionExpires) .

    Seems that it all depends on where you got your license from and which license exactly you have. But in general Expires states how long the program will work as a full version (i.e. with archive scanning etc.) and SubscriptionExpires tells how long you will be able to download virus sigs.
    How long you can upgrade (i.e. download a newer version) however depends on which versions your keyfile supports. See the Version= tag in the key file for this.

    I just checked mine and it read KEY-<04.01.04
    Suscription-<04.01.03
    I knew the KEY date was correct, so I just reinstalled and both now read <04.01.04.
    Would be interesting what would happen if you did same.
    Oh by the way, after reading posts about problems with the uninstall, I went into the DrWeb Directory afer reboot and manually uninstalled SpIDer Mail, rebooted and then deleted the Directory. It seems SpIDer Mail isn't uninstalled with DrWeb. o_O

    Thank you all for your resposes. That explains it, so I guess it is my memory.

    Sorry for the delay in thanking you... I forgot I posted. :D
    (actually, it's computer problems).

    Regards,
    Douglas
