After virdef-up update, right click scan not working


During this on-line session (am on dial-up) I updated to 1008, and i just noticed that if I want to perform rightclick explorer scan, I get ‘antivirus engine not working’ message…

Anyone experienced the same? Is a reboot needed after every virus definition update in order to have rightclick scan available???

Thanks advice,


I experienced the same.
It was working, after not working and ah-gain working.
I have no explanation.

I got the exactly same problem as you guys!

When i right click on a file/mapp and tries to scan then i get an error saying:
" The Antivirus engine is not initialized ".

So yes something went wrong. Though i diden’t try to do a scan before the db update but yet i got the error problem anyways!
