STEP BY STEP METHOD TO UPDATE YOUR ANTIVIRUS OFFLINE (AVAST, AVG ETC)

As a matter of fact, there are so many computers out there with out-dated antivirus databases which literally make them a haven of viruses themselves. What you probably don’t know is that you can update your antivirus without connecting your computer directly to the internet.

You will still have to download the update file from the internet, but you can always use or borrow somebody else laptop with internet connection which can be used to download the update and then install it on other computers.

For example, the most popular antivirus that I have seen is Avast (free version). But you will be surprised at the number of computers with out-dated antivirus whilst the owners have a false confidence of security.

Many times, some clients argue with me that it is impossible for their system to be infected because they have an antivirus installed.
This is where I patiently explain to them that new viruses are coming out every day hence the antivirus provider’s needs to provide new antivirus updates that can stop these new threats which is all the logic behind updating.

But before we get started, here are some important tips you must note first:

IMPORTANT TIPS

1.) It is not advisable to use a flash drive to copy the update file and use on another system

Reason: If the system is infected, it will also corrupt the update file on your flash drive and you will be unable to install it.

The solution: Burn it on CD. That way it doesn’t get corrupted

2) It is also better to add the update file to an archive (zip or rar) if you cannot burn it on cd. (See screenshot below)

Reason: Archiving provides an additional layer of protection because I discovered that some (not all) viruses do not infect archived files.

Lets get started..

HOW TO UPDATE AVAST ANTIVIRUS OFFLINE (ON A COMPUTER WITHOUT INTERNET CONNECTION)

So, how do you update your Avast antivirus offline?

1) First, Click Here to go to the Avast update download page
2) Click on the version of Avast you have on your computer (Avast 4 and below, Avast 5 and above e.t.c.
3) Your download should start automatically

HOW TO USE
