    If you have installed the Antivirus yourself then the question never arises.

    Start the antivirus, in the menu field, there should be an option "about" or "Help", click that and you will find the version.

    It is always a good idea to update antivirus, as that helps the software to load latest Virus Definition to the system by which the antivirus traces the latest viruses.

    Log in to the antivirus manufacturers website and click update to fix the issue, charges might be required if it is a paid software.

    Hi,

    It is very simple to easy whether your antivirus is outdated or not.
    Just open the interface of the antivirus.
    Now,when the interface will appear,it will show different features of the antivirus such as Anti-Spyware,Email-Scanner,License,Resident Shield,Update Manager and Anti-virus.
    If all of these options appear in Green color,then this means that the antivirus is not yet outdated.
    But if any of these options appear in Yellow or Red,then this means that the Antivirus is outdated.
    In this case,you need to update the antivirus as soon as possible.

    In my view,you should regularly keep updating the antivirus on periodic basis to be o the safer side!

    Bye

    hii..
    Friend let me tell you that if any antivirus is outdated, it remind the user automatically.
    Also When you open tray icons, an error symbol is shown with the logo of that Antivirus.
    When connected to internet, it also automatically updated itself.(if auto updates is ON).

    HI BUDDY,

    When your anti-virus is expired, in the taskbar you will see a dark grey icon or a cross mark in the icon of installed antivirus.

    Just click on it. It will ask for new registration number or liscence key. Give it.


    You are done.

    Dear guest,

    Since you have not mentioned your antivirus name it is difficult for me to suggest you anything at all. But most or nearly every antivirus update can be checked.
    you must know what kind of antivirus you have.... Is it a trial version? Purchased version? Free antivirus?
    Answering these questions will make it simpler to identify...
    1. Every purchased antivirus will be updated whenever you are connected to the internet but remember only till the time you have licence. To check for the info you can go to settings and then click on update. This will tell you if your antivirus has expired or not.
    2. If it is free then the antivirus will be updated free of cost when you are connected to the internet.
    3. If it is a trial version then of course it has got expired by now. Kindly purchase the best one available..

    Thank you...
