    Yes Avast Paid Versions of Internet Security, and Premier--auto update items with Software update, manual updating with Free version

    "All Avast security products for home PCs let you update your software with a single click.
    Premier users donít even need to do that, as software updates automatically in the background." Seems just for Premier it updates autoly after reading there site

    I thought AVAST was light on resources, at least some time ago. It seems it isn't true nowadays. I've heard good things about AVIRA, but I am quite satisfied with WD so far.
    Yeh it's a real shame when once-good free programs start getting bloated, ad-filled, never to be installed again.

    I found Avast Free beginning to eat resource & stopped installing it on my family & friends' laptops. Avira free is my current selection
    I used to use Avira but after several issues that appeared after several of their updates, including dropping all my exceptions, and annoying pop-ups I couldn't disable, I gave up on them and switched to Avast.

    Yeah, I've heard that Avira's popups are getting out of control.

    Used Avast for years but got disenchanted with it's bloatware and an instance that it wouldn't restore a known good file from the chest. I've been running Free Panda AV for the past seven months on all the PCs and, with the exception of a popup now and again to upgrade, it works pretty well.

    Have not used Panda myself, but have heard good things about it. :)

    Just to justify my own opinion, I tried Avast yesterday. As soon as I installed it (custom install, only the three shields installed) I noticed a "noticeable" slowdown on my i7 and what is even worse, I had some minor failures with some software. I went back to trusty WD.

    Avast used to be really good; light on resources, excellent detections and good shields. I'm sorry to hear it's become a resource hog like others.
