Why would you need that..? Avast updates on its own anyway.

i have problems on Win10 with connecting the Wlan after system start, it adapter is enabled but Windows doesnt want to connect to my network. So i made a batch file to restart the Wlan adapter on startup and this batch file gets executed per task schaduler. The problem is that the Wlan adapter restarts late so that when Avast checks for virus definitions there is still no network. Right now I am already 4-5 hoers online but the virus def are from my last (manuel) check from 11.11. And that is not goot.
So i want to create task schedule to force the virus def update later.

I believe Avast should detect when the network is available and attempt an update then.
For a "manual" check, you can use
Code: [Select]
ashUpd.exe vps
