    I was wondering, what virus update should I download...coz haven't tried yet downloading this thing and manually "installing" the virus update. :( o_O dial-up connection is slow, and sometimes I have to use the internet cafe for fast broadband connection. :'( ...maybe, I can use to download this update when I was in the net cafe.

    I have antivir personal edition classic free version 7.

    Is it the IVDF (Unicode)o_Oo_O

    How to install this update to my antivir free? is it automatic?

    there should be a button in the program in the interface.
    there should be a button at the top op the screen called update on the drop down box should be a button called update from file or something along those lines.
    if you cant find it i can always install it upstairs and have a look

    Antivir's "Mono VDF" download:
    The "IVDF" download
    So it depends on your version.

    For that Manual Update, you will want Hi-Speed, as they are 12+MB (a huge :rolleyes: download on 56K dial-up).
    To install, a click on "Manual Update" on your AntiVir GUI Console and pointing to the downloaded '..fusebundle.zip' installs it quickly.
    {Click here for the Tutorial for Manual Update}

    If you have Windows NT, 2000 or XP, it is and for Windows 98, 98 SE and Windows ME, it is not.
    (Notice that there are two different choices for 'IVDF' Downloads.)
    Default Update for AntiVir Classic on Dial-Up is to perform an automatic Update upon each dialed connection. These are issued about every two hours on weekdays between 07-20:00 GMT. {see Update History Here} Average Dial-Up time for these is well under one minute and Hi-Speed only saves the few seconds difference for a >100Kb download.

    A couple times a week, you will see a larger Update (still under 1MB) for a "Weekly" Signature IVDF or the Hueristic Engine, these may take 3 to 4 minutes on Dial-Up.

    It has been a few times a year, when AVIRA puts out a Major Program Update (9-11MB), that the Classic Servers are clogged and you may wait 5-10 minutes for connection, (or "Fail to Connect to the Internet") this clog affects Hi-Speed as well as Dial-Up. Solution for that is Patience, or pay Annual Subscription €20 for Premium Service (has premium servers).

    Looked like a re-do of the Classic Servers a few weeks back, and Updates have been quicker, real test will come with the mid-April expected Major Update (to Visa Capable Program).
