Like other members I've just done my A2 update again.
I sort of understand Trojans,Worms etc but what are "signatures"?
Not a burning issue but if anyone can give an answer in simple terms I would be greatful.

Many thanks

Signatures (or definitions) are the files the program uses to recognise the viruses etc. It tells it what to look for and how to remove the virus.
