First recommend me a good antivirus package(free)

MY usage : system gonna be online most of the time and lots of external devices may be attached often . SO suggest a antivirus package that can tackle issues related to my usgae..

And i like to set up the AV like updating on its own two times a day . because the system user is going to be very much end user . he dont know to update it manually .

And if i set up like updating everyday 10 AM , when the system is turned off at that time , it will not update that day . so in case the 10 AM update is not successful i like to update some other time ,the same day . that is if i set up automatic update 2 times a day(like 10 AM and 4 PM) in case 10 AM update is not updated , i want 4 PM update to update the update(missed by 10 AM update)

Avast updates at least once a day and also has streaming updates. This is from their help file.

Streaming (real-time) updates
By enabling streaming updates, you can make sure that new virus definitions are sent to you in real-time, rather than waiting for the next regular update. As your virus database will be continuously updated, this will give you even more protection against the very latest threats

I have AVG free, and I believe you can set it up to update at a specific time, maybe twice a day, I'm not positive. However, it does have a feature that will force update if given time is missed.
