    How does update free version differ from paid version? Frequency, free update not so often? Does free version have automtic update or it does not work? Have other users of free version problems with updates or anything else?

    AVIRA's avgate/freeav server system (for the Classic 'free' ) suffer overload when the updates are larger than usual. Premium/Suite users have access to a different server system.

    Default is one-a-day for the Classic, but you can create as many updates in your scheduler as you wish, Premium can have just one schedule to update every x-minutes.

    Classic no longer automatically updates on a dialed connection, so if you use dial-up on a modem, you must click while on-line in order to update. Schedule options would be hard to set for when you would be on-line and I do not like to allow any 'up-dater' to dial its own connection.

    Over two years (three systems until W9x/ME support dropped) and have had excellent service w/Classic free AntiVir, zero problems.
