I guess the only way to make a setting to do a manual update instead of automatic update after each system startup, is to change this setting in the screenshot below?

Thanks.

I will also add that in-product updating is always a more secure update method that manual updating; contrary to popular belief. Manual updating opens one up to a phishing attack. A recent example is the WastedLocker ransomware that deployed a fake Google Chrome update request.

What's the update frequency for ESET to update it's module?

 

It's been hours since it last updated the signatures.
 

Is this normal? I thought the frequency was every hour or two?

About 6 hours during weekends. Anyways, streamed updates coupled with the LiveGrid reputation system ensure receiving newly added detections every few minutes.

Thank you @Marcos

So it's about every 6hrs during weekends for signature updates?

What about during Mon-Fri?

For me, it's 3 - 4 hours with it closer to 3 hours the majority of time.

Also as mentioned, anything of a critical nature is pushed within minutes via streamed or LiveGrid updates.
