AVG 7.5 Update message

My AVG 7.5 icon has "greyed out" at the bottom of the screen. When I click on it, it opens with this message

Anti Virus internal Database is out of Date

so I click update (even though it downloads updates daily) and then it tells me

Your AVG Free programme already has the latest update installed.

And its back to square one. This has happened a few times, and I cant get any further!

Same with me; AVG 7.5 updated as normal just now.

Sounds like you probably need to reinstall AVG.

7.5 support will end at the end of the month,it maybe that your computer needs a reboot.

For what its worth,you should have prompted to upgrade to version 8 as pointed above,most of us have done so with no real ill effects.

No need to uninstall your current version as this upgade will uninstall your current version.

Or just download from here to reduce any confusion over the paid or free version thats seems to cause a few worries click here

Well actually yes I was prompted to download version 8, so maybe thats the best solution.

I have already re installed 7.5 because of previous update problems.
