avg update

Hello all. I am getting rather tired of trying to update my free version of avg antivirus 7.0. I keep getting the message that I am receiving from the server but nothing ever happens. Sometimes I get a message saying that I need to check my internet connection.
I appreciate that the servers are busy bit i have tried all times of day and night and I get nowhere. I have removed Norton firewall and ma now using the windows firwall and I have ensured that the relevant avg files have been enabled on that. I am using XP.

Can somebody please help me???? It is still telling me that an update is available.

Hello. This has happened a lot lately. Type Avg into the search box. I kept trying a number of times last night with the same results as you are having but then got through and received the update.

I should have said that I did not change any settings

There is a problem with the avg update site, it happens occasionaly,

manually update from click here download the update file to desktop and point the update manager at it.

We are all suffering the same problem, you just have to be patient. I find the easiest way is to put it on Auto Update and leave it to it's own devices. I suppose this is the price of using a very popular free AV.
