Avira Antivir Personal Free

  FatboySlim71 08:56 22 Jun 2008

I was just wondering if anyone knows how to get this to update more than once in 24 hours, as looking at the settings it seems to me that it will only update once every 24 hours unless the user does it manually.

Also, I believe with the free version that there is no email scanning for inbound/outbound email, I was wondering if anyone can recommend a good program for scanning inbound/outbound email.

Any help would be much appreciated.

i think if you click on administration,then scheduler,then to the right of overview click on insert new job and schedule another update

Thanks for your help its much appreciated. I took you advice and I have added 7 schedule updates, so I now have Avira checking 7 times a day now for updates : )

I think I'll start a new post for a "good program for scanning inbound/outbound email".

Your link is for Avast, I tried Avast before Avira but did not like it, basically I got more bluescreens when I used it than I have ever had previously, too much of a coincidence to be anything else IMO as it all happened from when I started using Avast.

Being a fanboy of Avast!,I`m sorry to hear that. It`s not a common experience with Avast! users as far as I know but, of course, it`s not unheard-of either.

The cause of it may be related to something other than Avast! itself, however:

Does that mean you put up with some blue-screen crashes as a matter of course? Or just that Avast triggered them?

Can`t help thinking it might have been caused by a faulty download. In which case an uninstall with the Avast! uninstaller, then a re-install would probably have fixed it, if the problem was indeed caused by an Avast! driver:

avast! detects the connection to the Internet every 40 seconds and looks for new updates every 4 hours on default settings.

I`ll go away now ;-)
