Constant Updates on Free Avast
« on: March 15, 2019, 01:19:21 PM »
Hi
Is it just me but my Windows 10 system is constantly telling me that there are updates to my free copy of Avast.

I must get at least three or four reminders a day despite having updated earlier in the day.  I can update and then half an hour later get another reminder.

I can't believe that there are that many new viruses turning up throughout  the day.

I think I seriously need to look elsewhere.

Do you mean program update or VPS update?
Do you have updates on auto?

Tried repair and reboot ?

O yes. Malwarebytes can have 10 updates a day. My F-Secure have recived 4 today (and there will be more)

Most of avast updates arrive with stream update (if not turned off) evry 5-15 minutes
