Keeping your BullGuard up-to-date
New viruses are found and identified every day. This is why it is very important to keep BullGuard up-to-date with the latest
If you are connected to the Internet through broadband or DSL, BullGuard takes care of this itself: it checks for new definitions when you turn on your computer and every 2 hours after that (by default). If any new virus definitions are available, BullGuard will update itself.
If you are connected to the Internet through a dial-up connection, BullGuard will check for updates immediately after you connect to the Internet.
Note: This guide is for BullGuard v8.5.
If you want to manually check for updates or change the way BullGuard updates, please read the guide below.
Connect to the Internet.
Check for updates
First, double-click the icon in your System Tray (near the clock):
Then go to Main > Overview and click the Check & Update button, as seen in the image below:
If no update is found then the "BullGuard is up-to-date" message will appear. This simply means that... your BullGuard
is fully up-to-date :)
If an update is found, it is displayed in the window:
Get available updates
Next, you should click the Update button. The download will begin:
That's it - your BullGuard is now updated!
If you're a more advanced user, you can also take a look at the settings for the update module. These are found in the same BullGuard tab, by pressing the Settings button:
Notification levels: choose how you want to be notified when BullGuard updates. This goes from completely silent updates, to detailed info on every update.
Update frequency: choose how often you want BullGuard to check for updates. BullGuard always checks for updates right after it is launched, and then every X hours.
