Disable auto-updates for Avast
« on: August 20, 2014, 05:09:59 AM »
I have Avast version 9.0 (42360) on a macbook 10.9.4.

Annoys the heck out of me when my macbook lags for 30 seconds and I know it's avast running a minor update in the background.  But it happens so unexpectedly at random moments.  Maybe 2-3 times a day (maybe more) when I am doing my work or watching a video online.

Is there a way to disable automatic updating.  There was a thread saying there wasn't and that I had to hack the files so that avast could pretend to be up-to-date but I don't want to do that.

My macbook currently has 2gb of ram.
