Definition Updater


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! I think this might be my first post. Mainly because I've felt like too much of a noob to say anything useful, but I have lurked here awhile. Anyway, this is my first real script that does something useful. I run it at the beginning of each work day to get all the latest Defs for tools I use on a regular basis for cleaning Spyware/Virus infested PC's. (I am an IT tech for a small university, and we clean student's PC's for them... ) :o

The script downloads the latest Definition executable for Symantec Anti-Virus Corporate Edition, as well as AdAware Defs, Spybot S&D includes and the latest AVERT Stinger.

Thanks for looking! and please let me know if there's anything I can do to make this script better / cleaner.

I also hope someone finds it useful

corvias, for those of that have to support our friend's and family's computers, this would be a nice thing for them to have. Then schedule a job to run this daily/weekly. It could be modified to launch the scanners (Adaware, Spybot S&D, anti-virus, etc) after they've been updated.

You can even be sneaky and disable the keybaord and mouse while it runs so they can't stop it (BlockInput(flag)). :o Just remember to enable them when you're done.

I see a lot of potential with this script. To increase the target market, it could update for a larger number of apps (e.g. add SpywareBlaster, Avast AV, McAfee, etc) and use an INI file to set which apps to download for or set it in the app or use both where the INI file overrides internal settings.


#Start Update.ini









#End Update.ini

Just a thought. Thanks for sharing.

PS. I'm setting up a new XP PC for my folks this weekend and anything that I can't automate the update for in the app, I'll just AutoIt.
