Come on, it was just a humorous response to the fact that rebooting Windows can fix problems you're having.
Sorry. Got it now ;)

Just to report that I`ve re-started my machine three times now, since my `system is not fully protected` message yesterday.

All have been normal, I mean successful, in the sense that the error message has not re-appeared and now I`m getting `Your system is secured`. Hopefully, yesterday`s problem will be a one-off, though I have a suspicion (based on pure guesswork) that it may have had something (I know not what) to do with Winpatrol Plus verifying my start-up programs and somehow making a mistake. Any thoughts?

Regarding updates: they`re very swift even on my fairly erratic 2Mbps broadband. One thing I`ve noticed, though, is that according to Comodo they`re coming in groups of three. Is this a new policy or just a coincidence?

Many thanks all for your responses.

Mmm, that`s the reason, then.

I thought it was a bit odd I was getting the same thing over and over again ... I didn`t check the update numbers (file numbers?) though, which clearly I ought to have done.

Thanks Logos. I suppose it`s just a matter of waiting until they put things right?

@ havildar

No problems here.

Please Go to PROFILE then Modify Profile then Forum Profile Information then update your Signature: with information like my signature as this helps the helpers offer pertinent advice.

I do not use Comodo.

YoKenny,

I don`t think I`m having a problem with Commodo. It`s normal for the firewall to list the updates and ask that you review them before moving to `My safe files`. Damn thing often shows signs of chronic paranoia, but I`m used to it and frankly, I find it useful that it does such checking of what I`m about to install ... hence my reference to the number of update files.

Avast lists my latest (3 file update) as 100512-0 which, I think is the latest one.
