Assuming that you're referring to the frequency of Virus database updates it is as frequent as once in a day.

Per article TS100421  there are three basic types of updates:

  • Content (DAT) updates are the most common and they are usually updated at least once a day.
  • Minor application (functionality) updates resolve issues and/or compatibility problems. 
  • New version releases are the least frequent, and they include application enhancements and changes.

Hello Selvan, Thanks for the message, but I have to say every 4 hours to update the virus bank is not good.
Bitdefender makes it every hour and other AV programs are faster.
But thanks for the message.
