Avira program updates.
« on: March 30, 2013, 12:38:54 PM »
I have been using Avira Free for the last few years and will continue to do so but I stopped updating the program a couple of months ago when they removed the option to choose when and if you updated it, definition updates are not affected.
As far as I am aware this affected the paid version as well.
Since then they have updated the program several times, does anybody know if the option has been returned in the latest version or is it still missing?

  Tis one of the things I like about Avast! antivirus, I have it set to automatically update the definitions, but to only notify me of a program update.  I like downloading the program update manually so I can keep a backup and not interfere with my bandwidth when I'm surfing or downloading.
