Avira Update Knowledge
Just like many other anti-virus products, Avira also has to be kept update with latest virus definition files (VDF), to assure best antivirus protection against viruses, trojans, malwares etc. The Avira Antivir product supplies these VDF files several times a week and updates them regularly. But for updating the product you need an internet connection, to update online and regularly.
Due to several reasons, it is not possible to download these updates through internet connection or online. To circumvent this problem, it is possible to download these VDF files for manual update from avira servers to a PC having internet connection. Then you can copy these files manually to any other computer using a USB and manually update any other PC.
