every time I log onto windows,and connect to the internet, AVAST! makes an automatic update, but this is realy annoying - because its putting a strain on my RAM.

Its just realy abnormal they way it updates - every time I get connected to the inter net it updates! I think something is terribly wrong here

can somebody please help?

Hi vise.

I've been using AVAST for quite a while now and am very happy with it. It seems to update very regularly which is a big plus - the more often, the more uptodate.

If I am offline when it tries, I am greeted by a big red notification when I come back to my computer, and immediately manually update. Automatic updates only take a few seconds on my machine.

IMHO, you have a good thing going so stick with it. If it really annoys you that much, there are other good ones out there that can be picked up for free:

Cheers

Avast searches for updates as soon as you connect to the Internet. You can use one of the options and change it to notify you before downloading but I don't recommend doing that. Just be patient and let the program update itself to ensure you have the max. protection.
