Earlier this week I downloaded the update for AVG free.  As I have dial up it took one and a half hours.
The update was quite a small file.
Today I looked for another update and todays update wishes to take another hour to download.
Now viruses are always changing, but it almost looks as my virus checker is a virus itself.

How is the virus checker a virus?  Because the virus definitions keep changing?  

The virus checker needs to download new virus definitions as they are available.

I recommend Kaspersky. The initial download is large, but its updates are small and quick.

It's not 'free', but remember -- when you choose free, you usually get what you pay for in the long run for protection and peace of mind.

Yeah, I'd say its your Internet connection that is to blame for the download time(s).  With so many options, its almost a must to upgrade to at least DSL service for almost the same monthly price, depending on where you live of course.
