something omnicomprehensive
« on: February 27, 2021, 08:13:33 PM »
Hi! I used to have a paid Avast PC subscription and a free one for my android. Last year I changed to another antivirus (cuz it had drivers updater and softwares updater). Recently I bought a (cheap) tablet and I started looking around for antivirus subscriptions that cover these 3 devises with a cleanup program included. I know Avast has one that does it ( I think it's called Ultimate), but I don't fully understand if it has included also some sort of driver updater and software updater (cuz I don't want to manually update all the programs on my computer; on Android I don't mind it)..maybe I simply havent found the correct info, anyway my question is:
Does Avast Ultimate have all the following: multi devises + antivirus + cleanup + driver updater + software updater?

Well, I read it, but..
If I understand it correctly, it includes antivirus and cleanup for the 3 devices I intend to use it on.
But it doesn't say anything about driver updater and software updater.
Am I wrong?

Software Updater is an integral part of Antivirus program, even the Free version, but that doesn't have Automatic Update function (you have to have it do it manually). 

As an Avast Free user, I don't know if the Driver Updater is included with Avast Ultimate, but I would have thought it should be, if the term Ultimate is to be considered the Ultimate choice.  When it has the Avast Secure VPN, Avast Cleanup Premium and AntiTrack.

What I don't know is if there is a payment option for 3 systems as it only shows 1 system and 10 systems
https://support.avast.com/en-ww/ and type Ultimate that gives more details.

Personally I have never been one to automatically Update Drivers, without a very good reason, known vulnerability or serious bug.  Updating drivers can have a very serious and possible impact on your system.

Software updater: a program that updates automatically my other programs (including Avast itself, but not only that)

Driver updater: I thought updating drivers is a good thing to do, now I'm perplexed...

Is included in Avast Ultimate (even twice, as ACP has a SU as well).
