    Hi All,

    I uninstalled Avast because it was a bit too heavy on resources. So far, I like Avira AV but have some questions:

    1.) What is the difference between a manual update and a product update?

    2.) How do I get to the screen to insure that my definitions are updated each day?

    3.) What type of notification do you get when a new program version is available?

    4.) What can I be expected to see during an automatic update process? Thanks!

    Jack

    Uninstalled and was forced to switch back to Avast! Avira AV generated false-positives and would not allow printing from the Flex MLS Real-Estate program which is vital for our system.
