integrity database creation
« on: January 18, 2010, 03:31:45 PM »
I am new to Avast Home/Free. Would someone be good enough to tell me where in the Avast4.ini file is the setting for the frequency of the  integrity database creation? I want to change it from three weeks to something much more frequent.

Thank you

It's an obsolete technology, and will not be used in avast v.5

Welcome

Windows XP Service Pack 3 has been available for over a year and a half plus it provides many Critical Updates and performance improvements.

You need to start Internet Explorer then go to Tools then Windows Update and download all of the available updates.

Go to Control Panel then Automatic Updates then select Automatic (recommended) or at least Notify me but don't automatically download or install them.

Go to Secunia Online Software Inspector then run it to see what other applications are vulnerable:
