Automatically update virus signatures

If you do not want the G DATA software to bother automatically updating the virus signatures, you can remove the check here. However, disabling this entails a high security risk and should only be done in exceptional cases. If the period between updates is too short for you, you can adjust it as you want and e.g. specify that updates should only be carried out when connecting to the Internet. This option is useful for example with computers that are not permanently connected to the Internet.

Generate log: If you check this box, every virus signature update is recorded in the log, which you can view in the additional G DATA software functions (in SecurityCenter under Logs). Besides these entries, you will find e.g. information on virus detections and other actions carried out by the software in the log.
