How do I configure the software updates?
With Lavasoft Anti-Virus Helix you can update separately the program files from the Virus Definition Files (VDF) and the virus detection module (Engine).
You can make the update settings in the Lavasoft Anti-Virus Helix main window, Extras -> Configuration, General -> Update.
Activate the Expert mode, if the General settings are not available.
Download and install product updates automatically:
Product updates are downloaded and installed together with VDF and Engine files.
Notify user if product updates are available:
When a product update is available, a notification appears for installation. If the user refuses, another notification appears after 7 and 30 days.
Do not download product updates:
Only new VDFs and Engine are downloaded and installed.
The default options for Anti-Virus Helix is: (1)
Using options (2) and (3), the user decides if and when to download and install program enhancements.
These are mostly useful to users with a slower Internet connection, to shorten the updates download time.
In case there is an exception, and the VDF and Engine updates require a program update, a separate notification appears.
