Clearly a busy day, avast! has updated a couple of times today as well.
Time to do a manual check for updates, no matter what AV you're using, scheduled updates are likely to get caught out.

Why do AVG update 3 times a day.When i used to have McAfee it used to update approx once a week

Size of over 4MB. , have tried to download on a different computer but keep getting a " Gateway Timeout error " report , must be in great demand. Will keep trying . Much better to be updated several times a day than once a week !

Because at the moment there are several new threats that have been released almost simultaneously. The signature updates are posted as soon as they are ready. The three updates in one day is extremely unusual, indicating a lot of activity from new threats. Waiting at all is inadvisable, checking for updates every week really isn't often enough.

Lordy, Lordy, soon need a personal assitant just to look after all the virus, adware, trojan programmes.

Thanks weedode.

Thanks weedode, my first visit is to pca and if it wasn't for people letting me know there are updates, I would be in trouble, so keep reminding as I keep forgetting. Thanks again.
