How often does Avira Premium update on the standard settings?
When installed, default 24 hrs but you can change it to what you want. I have mine every 5hrs.
I have mine every 15 minutes. Doesn't really cost more bandwidth since they usually don't update that frequently anyway. But at least, you have a few more minutes earlier protection from a zero-day.
i have mine every 4 hours...
*FYI - you may want to change your update display mode to "invisible", otherwise the update box will pop up everytime you update*
The default is 24 hr, but you may chose a smaller value:http://www.avira.com/en/threats/section/vdfhistory/index.html
I set mine to check for every hour and I sometimes leave my computer on for a few hours at a time. It usually updates in the early morning hours if you live in America.
I usually start or reboot my computer 3-4 times a day. As a rule I manually start Avira's update first thing after seeing the desktop. I've noticed there are at least 2 - 3 updates daily.
hourly is my prefered setting.
I like to go with 90 minute intervals.
I try to keep mine to a 120 minute schedule but i often find myself constantly moving the interval up or down.
