    I have been using Avast for 6 years but recently it takes ages to update when I switch on the computer and I would like to know if there is something else which updates at a given time instead of at switch on. I read on one of the posts some while ago that Microsoft did one. Could anyone advise me about this?

    kind regards...............Margaret

    Havent heard others complain about Avast downloading signatures at switch on. Have you checked your msconfig > startup tab to see what else is starting up when you login ?
