and run down the updates thread, as many of the programs don't have regular update schedules. Some approximate update patterns are:
Most AV programs - daily
ewido - daily
Spybot S&D - weekly, usually Friday
Ad-Aware - Beta defs are Fridays, with the updates usually the Tuesday or Wed. following
SpywareBlaster - usually every 2-3 weeks
CCleaner and many others are random.
Hope this helps
I want to set up my task scheduler to get the various updates. I know that nothing is set in stone when it comes to update releases. I know MS is usually once a month, on a tuesday. I do manual MS update checks weekly and watch V & S for unscheduled patches. I manually check norton daily.
What I was looking for was a pattern of updates for other programs. Eg: CC,adaware,ewido,and others. Or should I continue to check here and do weekly update checks for the programs in this paragraph? I was wondering what the consensus might be. Thanks.
