for those with avast 5 free who says it does check for updates every 120 minutes, where are YOU checking? :)

I see it in my firewall logs.

120 minutes actually works in avast 5 free for me.
It actually works for me, too!

First I had the same problem.
You have to change the default settings to "No proxy".
After that it works for me.

Try it! ;)

this fixed the problem ! now it updates every 120 minutes.  thank you
