The Engine is the part of the program that scans your computer for potential threats based on the Virus Definitions. To invoke latest VPS update manually please follow these steps:
1.Right-click on the avast! orange ball icon in the system tray, select 'Update' from the menu and then 'Engine and virus definitions' to launch a virus database update.
2.The UPDATE screen in the avast! user interace will open and shows you an overal progress of the VPS update.
3.After the update finishes, a message confirming that the VPS update has been completed will appear in the results.
