Any Avira freeby users out there who can fill me in about the automatic updates? I recently installed it after dumping Avast because of the upgrade problems. The first couple of days it didn't update at all, then it began updating at exactly 10.00 pm, preceded by an ad that filled most of the screen. For the past two days, 10.00 came and went minus updates, although I successfully manually updated. Anyone know anything I don't?
Joe G, what northumbria means is that it's inevitable that they'll fail, not that they're programmed to do that. However, I used Avast for a long time and I can never remember it failing. Prior to that I had a paid for Bullguard AV and that failed on many occasions. By the way, my Avira still hasn't updated!!
Greetings rdave and thanks. Avast gave me a major all-night (And next day) heartache. Before I dump it, what Avira problems should I expect and are you absolutely certain Avast 5 is free of all its crap? It turned off my IE, ditto my e-mails and more. I'm extremely reluctant to go through that again pal.
