    Excellent Question Dude......

    I request all the Enlightened souls to answer this issue since d/l the updates for all the anti-spyware Firewalls and Antivirus software are a Big headache.......

    I like Ad-Aware in this regards since you only have to save the defs.ref file which is enough to update the definitions.......

    u just go to the folder that contains the updates and copy the vdf files. when u reinstall it, replace the original vdf file with the files u copied. this will update ur definitions. vdf file is in case u r using avira antivir.

    for mcafee, i think they are .dat files which u have to copy. for AVG, it is a .bin file such as
    u7iavi294zv.bin

    I use NOD32 and its update files are stored in program files in updlfiles folder.
    There are two ver files and some nup files.
    All nupfiles shows modified date when i updated defination.But ver files shows diferent date.
    So shall i backup whole folder or only ver or nup files ?

    Thanks a lot guys for the replies.....

    I will thankfully be saved from the hassel of Installing the updates all over again when I format my computer.....

    This will be a boon for a few of my friends who are still stuck with Dial-up.....

    Thank you once again.........
