Maybe their new update process rolls out engine updates like LA does
with rolling electrical brownouts.

...should get to the hills (sectors 'R' and 'N') anytime now. :o)

I haven't attempted to update, I'm only relying on the automatic
process.

The hills in LA are sliding down.

Yep,
two seasons in SoCal;
fire season and
mud slide season.
Of course the interim is filled with the constant stream of tourists
ripe for a mugging, car jacking or drive by shootout.
...and if they have any money left
the back country is dotted with Indian casinos to alleviate that.

Took almost 1 hr to find 35 new files today.
Then about 2 min. for download.

The free version updates, by default, just once per day.  All the free
versions blast the same updates server.  That server can get overly busy and
unresponsive.  It could 3 days, or more, before a once-per-day update
manages to get connected to the common server and download an update.  

To ensure you get updates more often, define more update jobs in Avira's
scheduler and pick times when you think users are not likely sitting at
their desks trying to perform manual updates (start of work morning,
lunchtime, end of work afternoon, mid-evening, midnight).  You want more
chances per day to get an update and more probability that the shared server
is less busy.  Create, say, 4 update jobs that run daily and run at
different times of the day.

Good advice.
I check for updates manually and, overall, its been very fast lately, except
for the last few days.
Right now it is back up to speed.
I was just curious if others were having the same problem, and it turns out
they were.
Thanks again,
Buffalo

I booted my Vista notebook this evening after not using it for a few days.

AntiVir got its update w/no problems noted.
