we use F-Secure on our laptop. it was part of the software package that my wife was given through school.

however, for a long time it has been unable to update. i keep getting this message:

An error was encountered while updating the virus definition databases. The update could not be completed. Please check your network connection and try again. (error code:5).

Have you applied this hotfix?

If so and your still have problems, then try doing a Manual update using Latest.zip or fsupdate.exe.
