Antivirus is very important for us as well for our computers.  It makes us both safe…  If you have the old VPS then it will automatically be updated.  If not you can download it anytime because its free for non commercial use.  Yes!  it is now available for downloading..

Dear Eckel Andrea,

Yes you can check the availaibility of database anytime. It would be better if you change the settings to autoupdate. The avast will automatically detect updates and download it.

When you install an antivirus or an internet security on your computer, you should always update it right after you install it because the virus signature database that ships with it originally is outdated most of the time several months old. If you don’t update it, your computer will be very vulnerable to virus infection and various threats.

Most of the time, when the computer is finished installing the antivirus, the antivirus will automatically update itself. Just allow it to finish the update so the existing virus signature database will be replaced with a new one. If you don’t have a regular internet connection, you probably need to update it manually each time you connect.

Antivirus and internet security programs are designed to update itself automatically at regular interval. With ESET Smart Security and ESET NOD32 Antivirus, they are designed to update every hour. There are some like the Norton Antivirus and Norton Internet Security that updates itself every after several days. You can actually set how often you want your antivirus would update itself.

Downloading and installing of the latest virus signature database is not done manually by the user. It is the antivirus who does it automatically. If you are looking for an antivirus or internet security, try using ESET Smart Security 8 or ESET NOD32 8 Antivirus.
