AVG free

My AVG icon in the taskbar is black/grey instead of the usual red. It says "To finish the update retart the computer" Which I do which makes no diference.
When I go to update it says "Update was unsuccessful. XPsp2
Any ideas please

Hi, run RegScrub and then try again ...

don't be surprised if RegSrub finds hundreds of problems - let it fix them all.

Thanks. I went on to the AVG site, and read "go into update manager, click on settings and delete the last update, and then update again"
Did this and it worked.
Thanks again guys.
