AVG icon grey but no updates available

Anybdy else having trouble getting updates with their free version this week?

I have had months of trouble free operation, updating every day and tgis week the control centre is telling me my virus definitions are out of date but when I try to update, AVG tell me there are no available updates.

I have been on the AVG forum and there and some problems been reported but as yet no solution.

I have manually updated but that is not the answer.

Any thought anyone?

i would suggest uninstall/reinstall as it may be compromised.

thanks johnny. If I did that would I not have a huge virus update to do?

Just make sure the date your computer is set to is correct.

Thanks Lastchip - done that already. Also made sure firewall exceptions are set correctly for AVG.

If you are reading this thread because you are experiencing the same problem, I suggest you go to the AVG forum website click here
as they are having problems but can't isolate the cause.

I will click the resolved box on this thread as the 'solution' of deleting the upd7bin file cures it for a while but I will monitor the AVG forum.
