gold47 asked why we have to ask these threads advising of updates for AVG antivirus.
One can configure AVG to check for updates automatically.
From the Program Menu, open AVG control centre. From the Update Manager tab, check the box "Allow scheduled update" update if database is older than 1 day, then set the time when you are usually online. AVG will check for updates daily.
I have noticed that the recent ones have not applied themselves automatically, as they used to do, but they are applied automatically the next time that you run AVG.
Some people don't have always on connections, so they may prefer to check manually.
On most previous updates, I recall that AVG used to restart itself automatically to apply the update. That is no longer the case, and one has to apply the update manully. This will happen anyway next time you reboot, assuming that you have AVG set to run on startup. As you say, there is no need to reboot, one can manually run AVG to apply the update.
Pesala I normally manually run the update when I first start my PC but because of this thread I left it this morning to update automatically; and lo and behold it updated, and installed, to 330 with no intervention from me.
