By default, your AVG updates automatically on a daily basis, but there might be situations when you need to make sure that you do have the latest updates. To do so and update instantly, right-click the AVG icon in the system tray and select Update now. Alternatively, navigate from the Main Screen and click the Update now shortcut button.
If there are new update files available, AVG will download these files and update itself automatically. Otherwise, you will be just notified that there are no new update files since your last update.
