    I checked DrWeb today and on the web page it shows 79961 records in the virus base. 607 in DrWebtoday zip, but I show 605 in the Drwebtoday in the about window of Drweb scanner . I am using the spyware virus records also for a total of 84760 virus records in the about window of Drweb scanner. When I Subtract the spyware sigs (4801) I am left with 79959 virus sigs 2 less than shown on the Drweb site.
    I manually DL'ed the Drwebtoday zip and installed but it remains at 605.
    Anyone have an idea what is up?

    I have 605 & 79959 in *about*. The DRW website is obviously off by two. This arithmetic ineptitude explains, perhaps, why Soyuz failed to circumnavigate Neptune? :p
