May I missing information about Avira. Your download link Avira Antivir definitions (multiple VDF) works for Avira 10 Personal Free Edition… ?

Thanks for the answer… :)

Arent there any smaller updates? when one updates straight from the internet they are usually only a few MB in size. the one downloading now is quite large…

These update files are large because they contains virus definitions from program release to till date.
