The free utility AV Defs Updater for F-PROT for DOS Version 2.6 has
been released, containing the following improvements over 2.5x:
* Installation-free creation and updating of F-PROT(r) definitions
disks. After you install the product, and create a boot diskette with
it, you can write-protect it (you will be advised about that by the
program), take it to a public terminal that prohibits the installation
of programs, run UP.EXE from it, and follow the on-screen instructions
to create the definitions disks that can be used anywhere in
conjunction with the already created boot disk. Note that neither AV
Defs Updater, nor F-PROT(r) have to be installed for that to be
* Progress bars during the creation of DOS(r) bootdisk and F-PROT(r)
definitions disk set (emergency disk set creation), with the ability to
cancel the operation at any time.
* Windows(r) taskbar notification of download in progress (this will be

* Smaller improvements such as clearer and more helpful messages during
the emergency disk set creation process; better diskette handling under
the Microsoft(r) Windows(r) 9x series; clearer information presented to
the user upon booting the DOS(r) boot disk. Regarding the boot disk,
users are advised to re-create their boot disk to get the enhancements.
(Small note: if previously you tried to invoke 0 from the boot disk
menu but did not succeed, this now works.)
