The World Wide Web is full of hackers that's why the good side can't keep up with it.

There is a study that says if you have AV , you are only protected for 5% of the actual risk . Sometimes one wonder to pull the plug off and stay offline :lmao:

Regular, Frequent Antivirus Updates...More malware... means more antivirus updates
Why Does My Antivirus Program Update So Often?
Updating Your Anti-virus Software...How often should I update

However, with most antivirus software you can change the frequency of virus signature database updates in it's program settings but doing that is not recommended.

Can I change the frequency of virus signature database updates in ESET

Not really if you have anti-spyware with it then chances of protection are very high. :)

I've read that study in the past as well. But it says that you are only protected against 5% of the "new" malware that are released each day, and I don't think that it takes into account some Antivirus features like behavior blockers.
