Avast Free Antivirus: Update Definitions Offline
« on: October 24, 2011, 05:10:55 PM »
Hello, everybody!
I've been using Avast Free Antivirus for a while now, but wanted to know if it is possible to update the security definitions with an offline installer or zip file. My main computer, a custom-built Windows XP Professional, maintains offline use, due to my budget limitations.
If there is an official offline installer (or one that a forum member has made), please reply with a link.
Thank you!

You should note that the on line update is only in the 100s of KB magnitude, while the full off line update is 30 - 40 MB.
