Managing software update settings

This can be done by accessing your CatchPulse settings.

There are two types of updates available to CatchPulse - a Software Update and a Virus Signature Update.

To access options for doing CatchPulse Software Updates

  1. Launch CatchPulse > Click on Settings > Click on Updates.

  2. To check if there are any new version updates, click on the Check Update button.

  3. Under Software Update, you can set the following settings in the dropdown list: Automatically download and install updates, Notify me whenever there’s an update, Never check for updates.

Automatically download and install updates

By default, Automatically download and install updates is selected. Once it detects a new version, it will automatically update in the background without requiring any actions. You will be protected by the latest security updates.

However, for those whose machine is already experiencing heavy traffic load, the updates may sometimes slow down your system as there is an increase in the use of system resources. For this, we would advise against selecting this option. This is recommended to users who also practice control over what is being downloaded and installed in their systems.

Notify me whenever there’s an update

If you choose Notify me whenever there’s an update option, you will be prompted when there is a new software update.

  1. When prompted, click on Yes to update.
