My thought would be, do you need a virus alert when you have auto-update. Whilst you are online reading the virus alert, auto-update is probably downloading the latest additions to the virus pattern file.

By the time there is sufficient information to post an alert, in most cases the virus pattern file will have been updated.

Just my 2 cents/pence worth.
