I've really liked a-squared (free version) for at least the last few years, but "holy crap" is exactly my reaction of late.
I wasn't too concerned. I'm lucky enough to have a 10 meg connection so I wasn't too inconvenienced by the download, but I think this is the first program I have ever downloaded where the updates were significantly larger than the initial download.
I wish I could brag about my incredible connection too, but 'nuff said about that. Likewise, I haven't encountered another security program (or any program as you say) that required such huge updates. Does anybody know if the update now includes the Ikarus AV updates as well. In the past, I think
the malware sigs and the AV sigs were distinct downloads, but now I'm not sure. Regardless, "holy crap" remains my mantra because I'm unlucky
enough to not
have a 10 meg connection.
