Why Smart Update?

Our software is constantly updated to improve functionality and ensure that you have the latest protection against threats to your PC.

For Protection Software it is very important to run a Smart Update on a daily basis to ensure that your PC is protected with the latest signatures and definitions.

However due to the nature of Performance Software regular updates are not required. When an update is available you will be automatically prompted to download and install the new components via the Smart Update.
