RE: DrWebCureit

I can get to most of the pages including the download section but some pages display an alert with "550 Failed to change directory" error. What are problems are you encountering?

I fianlly got the program to update, from the ftp site.
But is it supposed to be version 6?
and what about the message DrWeb is only avalible for free if you are going to cure your PC?  
Are they changing their policy or maybe its not legit.
Looks OK now its running.

Click free download for home PC's then accept the agreement, when IE prompts to accept click OK download, it drops stright out back to the page above.

Dr. Web CureIt, is free for personal use only, any other use, e.g. in an office environment, you will have to buy a license...

I checked the site (at http://www.freedrweb.com/cureit/ ) and the filename that it gave me is: 5yfakv42.exe

I am thinking that they randomize the filenames, that malware will not interfere with the programs install...
