Hi
Before connecting to the Internet with a second pc i have just reinstalled windows 98 thought it would be good idea to put malware programs on plus antivirus and fire wall.wanted to run them through first before a connection but couple of the programs wanted updates first, would of been nice if they were active before i made the connection.
I know it doesn't take long to get the updates once online or maybe am being a bit ott?
regards

Go strait for Virus Updates you may be able to do this by rigt clicking AV icon in System tray neer clock and look for update. without opening Browser

PS
If Avast that's how you can do it, or if you have registed the software are on BB it will do this automatic if your Router Modem is logged in to your ISP
