Looking for scripted updation of commanline- virus scan utility scan.exe

I am trying to setup an automation which will periodically download and update a release area  (which will be used to run commanline based scans for a set of directories to be dleivered to external world).


I have the Virus Scan version as below. I looked in some forums and fould that te ideal place to download the DATs is*.zip

I need some confirmations:

1> Is this the correct/reliable location ?

2> Which files should be downloaded and extracted? Whats the diffwerence between and ?

3> What should be the best methode to update the release area? Presently I just over write the contents of the file...


Your comments wil help a ton.
