It was this problem that caused me to change to Avast after several years with AVG

The difficulty seems to be the overloading of the European update server and the danger is that eventually an update may be missed with the obvious consequences

Avast free edition manages to update automatically, sometimes two or three times a day, without any intervention on my part. One problem less to worry about

This happens from time to time. Last time it took nearly a week before the AVG site came back up properly.

But it's a small price to pay for one of the best Anti-virus programmes around.

This is on avg web site .dated today
If you've received updates in the past and are now either getting errors or incomplete downloads, then the problem will be because the update servers has been overloaded. Please be patient and try your update later. Your tray icon will turn gray to indicate that AVG knows there is an update available and when you are finally able to update, it will return to normal.

The free version doesn't have access to the high bandwidth/high capacity update servers like the paid one does.
