Anti virus has a database that recognizes the latest threat. But how often should an antivirus updated?

Will agree to nauval: the most recent virus base you have the better chances your PC stadts to fight viruses. I have quite a broad experience of using antivirus software. Started around 5 years agow with Dr.Web which was good at that time. Around a year ago it didnt save my home PC from a trojan that resulted in system total crash. Had to reinstall everything. At the moment I use KIS for home PC and Avast for my office. So far more than happy with both.

Virus threat is something unpredictable... we never know when new virus come... I have been cautious for it. So I update my virus everyday, with autoupdate feature enabled... That's not gonna make my PC 100% safe, but will reduce my worries

I use the Norton Internet Security, and since i started to use Norton, never get one single virus in my computer. It is at automatic update mode, so every day he checks in my virus databaes is updated, if not he does it for me automatically, so my database is always updated.
