AVG ....... Problem Updating ??

  Dirty Dick 10:28 25 Jan 2005

I can't seem to get the latest update from AVG. I'm running Both XP Pro & Home (on 2 PCs). I trying to update the Free Version 7. I try to connect manually, and a window shows that there is a Priority update available, but when I click to download, a window eventually comes up saying I have lost my Internet Connection. Is anyone else still having this problem?

Thanks for that Sethhaniel

I've just gone for a brew, and left the PC attempting to download. Still the message saying "Internet Connection has failed" came up but because I was elsewhere, it seemed to have carried on with the download. Everything OK now

I've been experiencing this, eventualy though it's done it on its own. Another Pc mystery!

I think it's the usual problem when there is a large update; the site gets a bit overwhelmed. This update is about 4 Meg and eventually took just over 30 mins to download over my dail-up connection.

Have a look at your Firewall settings.

On ZA I noticed that recent updates have created a new program listing that is blocked unless you manually change the settings.

Just downloaded the 4 Meg update. Perhaps this one has appeared sice you last downloaded. It was a bit of a surprise to me as I was expecting about 170K, at least that was what the update message said.

I had the same problem yesterday, but kept trying and after about 5 attempts it downloaded OK

it's just because their server is really busy with loads of people downloading, just keep trying!
