What is AAVUpdateManager?

AVS Update Manager is the program which runs on the PC and checks for updates and automatically downloads and installs them if found based on the user's settings. The program can be configured by the user for maintaining a schedule for when to check the remote server for periodic software updates. The program is primarily designed to keep the software up to date or provide product patches if required. In addition to releasing new versions of the software at regular intervals, the update program can provide additional information to the user. Users can choose a different schedule, or check manually if they don’t have a continuous Internet connection. If it finds an item to download, it will download and install the new update.


The most common release is 12.00.0000, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named aavus.exe. The setup package generally installs about 22 files and is usually about 13.42 MB (14,067,549 bytes). The installed file OnlineUpdate.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
