    Monster Defender Update (10.1 MB)


    Anybody else get this? After installing I did a manual scan(usually don't need to because of Real-Time Protection) because that seems to bee some major definition changes.

    My version of that one is only 1.9MB.

    There is a previous definition above it in that screenshot, and after it gets installed the 1.9MB is now 48KB,

    If you look at past definitions, the version #īs repeat sometimes, one is antivirus and one is antispyware, then there is the antimalware client update also.

    Yeah, I've noticed that before. It just looked to me like the size of the one in question adjusted once a previous version installed.

    Just curious, if it was a rollup with previous versions would the size increase like that?

    It seems like it would but there was a separate one offered. I'm just asking out of curiosity.

    I really don't know either, that's why I asked if anyone else had such a large one. And I update twice a day.

    Fair enough, Thanks Cliff.

    I guess we'll wait for further input.
