    Just installed latest Kaspersky Personal Pro 5.0383
    New too Kaspersky - so bear with :)

    Looking on the kaspersky site, i saw the extended & supersecure(redundant) database options.

    Anyway ,i had already selected redundant database in KAV options and updated KAV with no problems.

    Looking in the bases folder, I could not find riskware.avc, pornware.avc, adware.avc, x-files.avc.

    Have these files been renamed?

    Do i need to alter any updater settings?

    OR simply clicking on update now link in KAV, will
    automatically download the extended database sigs needed?

    If i don't have to do anything, why are riskware.avc,pornware.avc,adware.avc,x-files.avc not downloading?

    Thanks

    They have been renamed some months ago.

    Noobster there is no redundantbases available anymore, in "Threats & exclusions" you can change between the standardbases & extendedbases, if you choose the redundant option you will just get the extended anyway. ;)

    I believe these names were given to the bases sometime in March, right?
