I run AVG Free version and my virus database number is 287,If I check I find this is up to date. However, If I visit the web page prompted by an earlier thread AVG Update 489 (Problem I find these higher numbers. Can someone please explain, I don't understand, thanks in advance.

The "higher" numbers refer to the Program Version e.g 6.0.488. Generally both that number and the Virus Database number (currently 287) increase with each update published by Grisoft. Sometimes though (for no obvious reason) the numbers "jump" over the next sequential number.

There seems to be a problem with Avg. There update page says that 489 is the latest version but when I use the update manager it says I am up to date but i'm running 488!!!!!!

On Djohn recommendation I checked for an update and got 288. Think it's just come out.

Just had a look in AVG control centre - information tab and its tells me I have Program Version 6.0.489 Release date 26.2.03 and Virus Database 288 Release Date 10.6.03

Thanks to all who responded, I now understand perfectly. I think that sometimes I look at things but don't see.
