Update scheduler for AVG Free Antivirus

AVG antivirus (free version) is one of the most popular antivirus software available on the internet and has several satisfied users across the world. But, unfortunately updating the free AVG has given lower priority than the commercial user.

Moreover the free version (v.8.5) does not allow users to schedule updates as they like. Updates are scheduled only one time at the start-up or can be done manually.

Updating any antivirus program with latest virus definitions are must for continued protection. In the case of AVG, this is possible by doing updates more times a day.

However, as a manual operation, this is not being done usually. Moreover, it can also occur that at the start-up, internet connection is not active and, therefore, the Anti-Virus remains out of date until users do update manually.

AVUS (Anti-Virus Update Service) is a small utility for Windows working in background, which does scheduled updates to the virus definitions of the well-known AVG Free Anti-Virus 8.5.

Basically, it executes a temporary batch file every certain amount of time invoking AVG Anti-Virus to do updates.

Works on Windows XP, Vista and 7 (required .NET 3.5). Download AVUS (Anti-Virus Update Service)for AVG Free 8.5 (96Kb)from Sourceforge.
