Downloading
« on: October 13, 2012, 06:59:46 AM »
I was searching for an answer already given, didn't find one. Forgive me if this is a repost. It's probably an odd request, so I doubt it.

I have need to install virus protection on a computer not connected to the internet. I have been using avast for a few months now and I like it. I would like to install avast on the computer in question. I would ask of you:

If I download the most current installer (7.0.1466), would an internet connection be required to install avast? (Is the installer fully capable or is it a web installer?)

I do understand that the program would not be able to update itself automatically, yes. That brings me to my next question:

Is there a way to download and install program updates and definitions manually with avast?

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Thanks, Asyn.

Quick question. I do see that this page says that updates are usually released on a daily basis. I do see that the page discusses their virus database (definitions, is what I've known them as). I do not see a version number or a date of release.

Does this include the virus definitions or just program updates?

I can not imagine why the program would need updates daily, other than for the definitions...but you never know why people do what they do.
