Updating Quick Heal antivirus

Are the upgrades free? If yes, how long?

All the updates and upgrades are free for registered users until the product license is valid.

My product receives updates frequently. Why update is required?

New virus threats and malwares are released daily and to combat these threats, new security measures are released as and when required. It is highly recommended that you keep your product updated to ensure security against new threats. You can configure Automatic Update to pick up the updates automatically as and when new updates are available. If set to automatic mode, the updates are taken in the background without user’s intervention.

Quick Update/Registration Wizard says ‘You are not connected to Internet…’ but I am online?
