    It is very easy to update your Avira Antivirus. I liked the fact that you realized that keeping your antivirus update increase the chances of your systemís protection against any kind of virus or malicious germ attack or any other kind of attacks like hacking. An updated antivirus will keep your important data files safe and secure in your system. It would be better for you to select the Automatic update option so that you donít have to start the Avira antivirus again and again and check for new updates. You can select the automatic update by going to the settings option in your Avira GUI.

    Wow!! That was extremely great of you guys. Thanks for those replies. I tried everyone of them and each of them seems to be working. Actually i was looking for the manual update in precise, so i directly tried the last suggestion. I already knew the other methods of updating the antivirus but was looking for the manual ways to perform the update in my antivirus. Actually i don't have internet connection and was planning to first download the update from some other source and then transfer it to my system and then update Avira. So yes, thank you again.
