Hi 

There is no way to update Avast antivirus without connection ! There are ways but it is illegal. Only way to update Avast is with internet connection. You ask for way to protect your computer without installing antivirus ? Yes there is way. Simply Windows Xp or Windows 7 has integrated protection. You can turn on updates and firewall protection. You can run your PC like admin and that will help with net protection too. You can also downalod Ad-Aware or  Spy-Bot nds bit of software.Or you can download tham both.I think protecting your PC with these kind of programs is good. Antivirus protections are good but they have a lot of bugs.. So most antivirus programs are unusuable for same cases

Hope i helped to you

Yes, it is possible to update the antivirus offline by simply downloading the virus signature database. You can only do this if you don’t have a regular internet connection so you can update the virus protection of your computer.

This is not recommended if you have a regular internet connection or your computer is always connected to the internet because the Avast antivirus checks and downloads updates regularly every four hours. To download the offline virus definitions for Avast antivirus, go to Avast Download Updates. Here, download the update specific to your version.

Don’t download an update for a different version because the installation or the update will fail. You will just be wasting bandwidth if you’re on a limited monthly volume. The update for versions 19 and up alone is already 178 MB when you download the file.
