I saw from the Ewido site that the number of threats protected against today (April 6, 2007) totalled 731,588. My paid-for copy of AVG AntiSpyware 7.5 still showed yesterday's number. Neither manual update via the main page of AVG nor automatic update would work, so again I had to: 1) Close down AVG 2) Download the full database of signatures 3) Restart AVG 4) Click on 'Update Now' on the main page of AVG AntSpyware 7.5 for the latest signtures to be downloaded and the date on the main page change to April 6. This is supposed to be a security program and was good whilst still German controlled. Is this a deliberate plot to get those of us with 'permanent' licences to look elsewhere?
