I need to consistently download patch on following web site, but the file

http://definitions.symantec.com/defs/20100421-002-x86.exe
http://definitions.symantec.com/defs/yyymmdd-002-x86.exe

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to code a batch file to download
the
patch based on specific date format? so I can set schedule task to run it.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions

It depends on your regional settings. What exactly do you see when you type
this command at the Command Prompt:

echo %date%

Even if you ARE successful, you're asking for trouble. Yesterday McAfee
finally caught up to Symantec in the race to slow down computers.

Slow, or KILL?

No slowdown at all here, reasonably small footprint, excellent speed.
Actually I noticed NO difference when NIS 2009 and now 2010 were installed.
I think you guys are behind the times. McAfee I don't know about; haven't
used them in years.

Twayne:

You are correct, NIS 2010 is so much better than the last several
products I've used. In fact, NIS 2010 is the only AV software that I
have ever used that works so well that I will buy it again when my year
ends. There are a few places where it can be purchased for a very low price.

The very worst AV I ever used was Bit Defender 2009. 2008 was fairly
good but 2009 required almost weekly removal and re-install, just to get
it to work. Their 2010 version (thankfully I didn't try) has recently
crashed a huge number of computers. It deleted thousands of files from
any computers running Windows 7/64.

Those posting here that bad mouth NIS 2009 or 2010 are showing their
age, NIS once was bloated but not now.

What do you suggest as some of the best AV to use? What criteria do you
use to decide?

Thanks,

Many, many are ignorant of the last two year-titles of the product. That
often happens to closed minds. Come back when you know what you're talking
about.

You must be the easiest person in the world to brainwash. You keep pushing
all the useless
application garbage, I.E. Registry cleaners, Norton, Symantics.
Why don't you clean up your machine and find out how great a clean computer
runs?

I'm not Wally, but I don't think you can go wrong with Microsoft's Security
Essentials. The criteria I used are the reveiws from (presumably) unbiased
sources.

On the other hand, reviewers who accept paid advertising for non-free AVs
are less impressed:
PC Mag

There are other, free, AV detectors: Avira and Avast have good reputations,
as do several others.

This is the most stupid thing to do because reviews are reviews
posted by nutters. The Proof is all here for everybody to see:

Either you should use your own brain by trying it on your system
and therefore taking responsibility for it or simply shut up!

I try every solutions on my system before posting here.

At the risk of being a "nutter," I have to ask: How does an individual, such
as you, test an anti-virus program? How on earth can you detect a false
negative before it does irreparable damage to your machine?

Admittedly, you could download a comprehensive file of virus signatures and
play it against your installed product, but why do that when the providers
of the signature file have already done so? For example:

http://www.av-comparatives.org/

Further, since you've evidently tried multitudes of AV programs, which one
do you recommend? And why? Or are you simply a devotee of "process" instead
of "results?"

My machine is already clean. It runs very well and is fast. It's kept clean
with periodic maintenance. There are 22 icons in the system tray, 96
processes running at the mment, per Task Manager, which we all know isn't
accurate, Registry size is approximately 5 Meg last time I looked, with no
orphans or entries looking for anything that doesn't exist.
NIS, idling, is using 2 to 3% of cpu time. Doing a deep scan, just
started, it's cpu usage is going from 3% to short bursts at 34 to 38% cpu
occupation. I also have IE8, OE and PaintShop Pro running, which is just
beginning to make the processor take a noticeable pause to service the
keyboard. Killing PSP removes that; PSP is a large and powerful program.
Oh, almost forgot; also have NetObjects Fusion 11 running and uploading a
web site. Since closing PSP all is back to running fine. Total overall cpu
occupation is never touching 100% and overall the peak it reached was 92%
for a short period of time (less than one second; forgot the fiture already.
Norton even has a little nicety where if you minimize its window, it lowers
its own priority to keep the cpu available for other programs. No hogging at
all, no problems.

YOUR problem is that you expose your own ignorance and lack of current
knowledge with the types of posts you make. A lot of your comments are so
dated they aren't even close to reality anymore. All in all, your
credibility is and has been for some time in the toilet; namely since you
troll so much.

Bye baby; go cry yourself to sleep.

HTH,

You should look up the word "troll" and apply it to all your posts pushing
registry cleaners, Norton programs,
Semantics and the like. Yet, anytime a post appears explaining the problems
caused by
those programs, you conveniently are nowhere to be found. Then you say they
are good programs.
Like I stated before, you must make your living selling that trash. You're
like a used car salesman.

Processes running????
Are you insane?????
