I installed various antiviruses in my Mac, say Avira,Avg,Avast,Trend Micro,Comodo. I need to get the information from command line whether automatic upgrade option is enabled for particular anti virus or not ??

I'll skip my usual lecture and just tell you that you are wasting time and money and slowing the Mac down with that crapware. Uninstall the lot of it according to the maker's respective instructions. Macs are not Windows.
