I then downloaded the Avast 5.0 free anti-virus program and installed it.
The Avast program indicates that everything is working fine and the virus definitions have updated.
However, Windows little red shield in the task bar says that my virus definitions are out of date.
I have tried to update, but it starts to initialize and then nothing happens.
I don't know if Windows XP doesn't recognize the AVAST program updates, or has to have today's date on them, or if I still have viruses.
The version of definitions I have is 10101100
(Also, don't know if this is the right place for this question.)
