    Hi there.

    After the liveupdate is applied to SG, my definitons are dated 22/01/2004. This is a bit ... old ? Aren't the definition files being update anymore ?

    Spywareguard relies on heuristics, which means it can detect and catch unknown spyware items. Therefore, it does not need to be updated so often.
