got AVG 8 on home PC but - not internet connected so manually download updates to memory stick ( illegally at work during working hours - ok fair cop) -
but as from yesterday their update site is blocked by the system - any other sites that make the update files available that may not be blocked by system
I have Avast to fall back on and their updates are still accessible if the worst comes to the worst and AVG has to go

Both take you to the Authors site which is blocked. Back to the drawing board. ;(

The MajorGeeks site always points out that their downloads are for the manual updating of the full version only and that the free version should always be updated from within the program itself so you may be struggling to find an alternative.

Do they block the entire Grisoft site, or just the update page(s)?

If your home pc is not connected is it that much at risk from a virus?

What's the point of AVG on a computer that's not connected to the internet and why have you asked the question ?

very real need as I am constantly downloading stuff to my memory stick and transferring onto my PC - surely I am not alone in this - ;)

I have asked thwe question as i need to keep it up to date too
