Is the virus signature databse shrinking?

Question

The total number of virus signatures in my database seems to be shrinking day by day, eg, from 10,045,000 to 9,876,000 to 9,750,000 and now 9,333,770 (all numbers approximate). My computer checks for updates every hour and it usually takes a couple of minutes to add the new plug-ins. It tells me I am up-to-date, but does the update process actually reduce the number of signatures by throwing out old ones?

Thanks, Cecilia, I feel better already. Next time I'll try to spell 'database' correctly in the headline.

I hope the next edition keeps the same color scheme for the main panel (blue, green, burnt orange). Great colors and design.

You're welcome WGel44 :)

 

I think you can change the headline if you first select to edit it and then select to use the full editor.

 

Please, enter your hopes and suggestions for the next version of Ad-Aware in the http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?/topic/33637-suggestions-ideas-what-features-would-you-like-to-see-in-ad-aware-11-or-12/ topic, which is read by Lavasoft staff.
