I am having a similar problem in that I have been unable to update the last definitions set.

My problem however is slightly different in that I have no problem connecting to the server or having the file download. Upon attempting to save the file I get the same message auto or manual update ... "Last valid erro: Invalid file signature. Setup will terminate."

Current engine/definitions Version 110503-1 , Program version 6.0.1000

Click on the blue "Free" in my signature and download 6.0.1091.
Install right over the existing installation, no prior uninstall.
Reboot.
Check.

Thanks muchly. Doing a separate download and install seems to have solved the problem (I was getting the same error trying to update the program through the control panel). All is now up to date.

Thanks again!
