AVG Free Edition is the well-known antivirus protection tool and is free of charge to home users for the life of the product. Rapid virus database updates are available for the lifetime of the product, thereby providing the high level of detection capability that millions of users around the world trust to protect their computers.
I’ve been personally using AVG Free for more then 2 years now and automatic updates is working great. But a question was recently asked if you can download the updates manually from a site or ftp.
You can and here are the steps:
1. All the updates are available in http://free.avg.com/download-update
2. Download the latest updates you want and place it in an easily recognizable directory (I usually just place it on the desktop)
3. Launch AVG Free Control Centre. Goto “Tools” > “Update From Directory” and browse for the antivirus updates you have just downloaded.
4. Press OK to install the latest updates. That’s it 🙂
