    I just noticed it.
    Thought others might not know about it.
    I'm slow sometimes.

    I usually download a new version of program (free version of course) as soon as I notice an update so I can install on other computers without having to wait for updates every time.

    I usually have all my programs set to automatically update or tell me an update is available.
    I forgot to set Avast this time.

    It pays to keep up to date, especially with your antivirus.
