    Got 2 questions:

    - Thus the latest virus definition (intelligent updater) contain the virus definitions in the previous intelligent updater?

    - Is there a way to integrate/slipstream virus definition to the original installer?

    Im asking these questions because the amount of virus definitions i have downloaded has just reach 1 Gigabyte of disk space,

    hope you guys can help me with regards to my problem, thanks in advance. :confused:

    if you get the latest version of SAV, you should not need to slipstream at all. I just updated once after installation and was up to date. Using 8.1.0.825 here.

    Right. Definition files are cumulative. You just need to get the latest version, not everything in between. [​IMG]

    if your virus definitions have reached over 1gig then I think there is something wrong with your av software.. 1gig of data is A LOT of data, it sounds like your program might be writing redundant data all over the place, I would uninstall and reinstall the program.

    Lets put it this way, if u install and run NAV2004 at first time it has virus definition dated august xx, 2003 if im not mistaken, from there i have downloaded intelligent updater up (which usually is 4mb in size) to this moment, symantec releases intelligent updater almost everyday,

    if i format my drive and reinstall NAV2004, should i install all the downloaded intelligent updaters or just the last?

    Yes, installing just the last update should bring you up-to-date with the latest virus definitions, since all updates are cumulative.
