    Some weeks back there was a thread on how there was a bug with the AVG 6
    Free edition. The virus signature file was greater than 1.4 Mb so when
    creating the floppy rescue discs the process failed.

    It appears that with the latest update (516) there was included some
    program updates which appears to have fixed the problem. The rescue disc
    creation utility will now span the floppies and you end up with three
    discs in the rescue set.

    Cheers

    I did the update in the evening. Actually, their numbering is a bit
    confusing. On the home page of Grisoft's website, the latest update
    (with the program changes) is listed as 517, but if you do the update
    directly from the scanner it downloads as 516.

    I'm confused as all hell. I downloaded the update file last night, put it in
    the 'update' directory of this machine and started AVG. I got a message
    telling me certain files were missing and to contact blahblah@grisoft. I
    thought "Bugger that" and uninstalled the proggy, re-booted, re-installed,
    re-booted, ignored all the prompts to update, copied the d6032lhj.bin file
    to my update directory and started AVG. It started and updated fine and
    asked for a re-boot. The proggy I installed was one I've had on my HDD for
    over a year.

    Now when I check versions in AVG apparently I'm running proggy version
    6.0.516 release date 2/9/03 and virus database 313 release date 1/9/03.

    Does this seem right to you guys?

    How are you downloading? I just doubleclick on the AVG icon in the system
    tray which opens the control centre. Then click on the "Update manager"
    tab and the the "Update Now" button. For me, this seems to download into
    the "Update" folder and automatically run the update when finished.

    The ver no.s and dates are the same as mine so you should be right.

    I was doing it that way too up until I had problems a week or so ago and I
    couldn't download via that method, either from their .cz site or their .com
    site. Also, as I have it on all four machines on my LAN (what licence
    agreement?) I have been advised to download the file from their website and
    copy into the 'upgrade' directory of all the machines and then run AVG and
    it updates automagically. One 3-odd MB download versus 4 X 1.3MB dowload.

    OK, cool. The thing is, this latest update, which only appeared for download
    today, has the same date as the last update I already had, 01/09/03. I'm
    guessing there are no new signature files included, just a patch for the
    glitch that occured when writing a set of rescue disks.
