Turning off automatic update.
« on: April 22, 2004, 06:23:22 PM »
How do i turn off the automatic virus definition/program update downloading? ???

I know the files are usually very small, i'm more annoyed by the voice and pop-up message.

Tu turn off automatic updates, start the program and click the 'Automatic Updates' field.

To turn off just the pop-ups, please see this thread http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=2130;start=msg14734#msg14734

Hope this helps,

Thanks!
Don't know how i missed that, just started using and everything is a bit wierd :D .

I play online games and when avast updates, my ping goes sky high for a moment and the pop-up notifying that the update is complete shows partially thru the game.

I will of course update manually time to time. But as always, avast will be lonely since viruses avoid my computer, what's a virus, can't remember ;) .
