i reinstalled avg an wasnt getting the updates everytime i logged on, now ive started geting them again but it says couldnt connect too avg server, im on xp running commodo firewall, i get a message from commodo saying this could be a trojan . deny /accept . i clicked deny , as i dont know whats goin on here, any help plz thanks :O)
If you've asked your firewall to "always deny" AVG then you won't get any updates in the future - so check that's not the case. As Technotiger says there has been (and still is) major congestion problems on the AVG site.
This is a frequent problem for me with avg8 comes up cannot connect etc what works for me is to connect to the net,be it your homepage then minimise it and run the avg update,its worked every time for me,weird suggestion i know but its worked
rather than mess about with avg, and the update problems (which I was experiencing also, hence my switch - plus it didn't catch a virus which infected my machine too), why not just ditch it and try out avast?
It's free, and I've found it to be more reliable and effective than AVG, and naturally less hassle.
If u do try it however, ensure u uninstall avg, do a run of CCleaner registry thing, then install avast.
Thanks i cant get avg on now because of the update thingmsaysmake sure im connected witch i am, an make sure the connection parameeter are set properly? so ive no idea ,might take ure advise m8 use avast. cheers
