    Exclamation Free Grisoft Antivirus Updating Fix

    Seems that 7.0 Free version updates from different server than Pro version. Since most users run free version, related server seems overloaded. Try following countermeasure:
    Edit the 'hosts'-file on individual PC's and add the 'guru' line below the 'localhost'-line as follows

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    193.86.103.19 guru.grisoft.com

    Win98:
    C:\WINDOWS\hosts (Open with notepad & append 193.86.103.19 guru.grisoft.com below line '127.0.0.1 localhost')
    WinXP:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts (Open with notepad & append 193.86.103.19 guru.grisoft.com below '127.0.0.1 localhost')

    Regardless the free version initially tries to update from the free-server, it will now point to the Pro updateServer.
    Both free as pro 7.0 versions do use the same update definitions.


    Hope this helps some of you. I was having updating issues on my wife's PC. This fixed that. Now it updates quickly whereas before it kept timing out.
