AVG update download failed

  Puddle 16:36 10 Feb 2009

This appears to be happening again. Autopmatic update has failed for the last few days. I am in the free version 8 on XP.
I tried reinstalling but that did nothing.System Restore was no help either.
What newxt, please?

apologies if you already knew puddle but avg free doesn't have anti rootkit protection whereas avira free and avast both do and may be a better option these days :o)

Yes, I'm happy with AVG.

So...err... why would we want to try something else?

Confused... (not for the first time)

  IClaudio 19:09 10 Feb 2009

Ah yes, THAT's why we wouldn't want it ;)

MAT ALAN is happy with AVG (as am I) but it famously does not have root kit protection. So he suggests Sophos Anti Rootkit in addition to AVG.

ERR!!! yea wot Sea Urchin sed...

sorry, didn't explain myself too clearly there...
