When trying to update AVG I get the correct window but it never seems to progress with the download. It gets to the point of 'receiving answer' and then never progresses. Anyone got any ideas on how I can fix this.
I run XP.

Many thanks

Just reduce size and leave it on and it will download at its own pace ;-))

No it's not happening! Now it's saying the internet connection has failed which is strange because explorer, e-mail and the other updates are working fine.
I am using ADSL as a LAN and have just got rid of Norton Firewall and am now using Windows Firewall. I have ensured that AVG is allowed but this appears to have made no difference. Any other ideas?

It might just be AVG site, it is very busy at the mo, try again a few times before you alter any settings.

It's a problem with AVG just now marc...

Everyone is in the same boat. It's not imperitive to be bang up to date anyway since the virus is already out there before AV chappies get to learn of it.


Just try from time to time and eventually all will be ok.

I've just downloaded the latesr update, BUT it came up that my "internet connection had failrd". However I left everything connected and after a few minutes the download completed. DD
