When I used AVG, it had an option to auto-update. I think it did. You can buy it, which comes with more options. If AVG still has a Pro version that's free, that is probably the better way to go- you will have more options that way. I ended up getting Norton's AV, because I am more comfortable with it. I was trained using Norton's.
