Hi bearhead,

The easy answer is avast! updates as often as needed.  Sometimes that means a day or two between updates, sometimes twice per day.  It all depends on the amount of new malware needing to be dealt with.

You can see a chronology of the updates that have occurred this year by clicking this link

I answered this in the other post you made on the same issue http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=22061.msg183481#msg183481

There is no set number per week, they are released as required, it averages out around 3-4 per week and often more. I have seen as many as 4 in a day, each time you connect to the internet avast will check to see if any VPS updates are available and every 4 hours if you remain connected.

Program updates, that is different, once a program update is released it will be available and everyone should get it within 7 days as the load is spread so as not to overload the servers.

Please don't post multiple times for the same question it just duplicates effort for those helping, thanks.
