AVG 7.5 stopped downloading and updating

Hi all
Just recently my 7.5 does not update. The box comes up and nothing downloads. I have had the pop up to upgrade to the new AVG 8, and I have looked at the free version. I don't want all the extra bits, I have vista so some of features so I have firewall and windows defender etc are already there. I just want the updated version of 7.5 not all the bumph! Have heard the new one causes problems, a bit nervous!!

I haven't had any problems with version 8. AVG still seems quite light on system resources - so I would update.

It may well be just a server problem with 7.5 at the avg end but eventually they will stop supporting 7.5 anyway.

AVG 8.0 is a 45Mb file.

..... but I have installed it over AVG 7.5 both on a PC and a Laptop. (Both XP Pro) I went offline but didn't disable AVG or Zone Alarm.

Both installations went through without a hitch, I was patient for once, followed the prompts and when told allowed it to reboot.

I see from this forum some have had trouble, but in the words of Cpl. Jones - "Don't panic".

There are one or two places where nothing much seems be happening, that is where it pays just to wait it out.
