AVG 8 Updates

  Petesilver 18:01 08 May 2008

I have just installed AVG 8 free most things seem to be working OK except that my PC keeps telling me my AV is out of date and when I try to update I get the message "connection with the update server failed"
I have tried disabling firewall but it makes no difference.
Can anyone help ?? as I hate not having an up to date AV

most avg settings are for dial up and need changing?

I have just update a computer with the free version of AVG 8 and it updated okay, the servers seem to be okay.

You could try and un-install your version and get the latest version here click here

I think that the latest version is 8.100a1295.

In AVG8 open the Interface and then click on Update Manager, then untick Automatic Updates. Then check manually for updates.

PS - having done this, it will then re-set itself to Auto update, and future updates will be OK.

I have check setting and all seems OK dial up is blanked out and URL set OK
every thing else is working everything is active except the download manager...... OK I have manually downloaded the AV file and installed it so everything is now up to date...............
the only thing that is not working is the connection to the update server and I have tried disabling most programs that might interfere but it still does not work

When I first installed AVG8 a few days ago, I was getting the same Update Server message problem, but since doing what I suggested above it has worked perfectly. I did not make any changes at all to anything else.

I tried doing what you say but it still does not work.
I can only update the AV file by downloading the file and installing manually so everything is working except the connection to the download server ???????
