AVG Update This Morning!!

  Solartopi 13:46 16 Aug 2007

hi Folks,

I have just downloaded automatically a big Update. It said something about 'This is not tested yet.'

And here seem to be additional updates still coming through; corrections perhaps??????

Thanks for the info. Yes I was surprised at the quantity of the Update. I will try again to see if there is any more.

I think you'll find the big one was a routine update to the main application. They seem to come in every few weeks or so and consist of multiple files, typically 6-9.

Once having downloaded and auto-installed such an update, it's a good idea to re-check again for leftovers as, more often than not, one or more virus 'signature' updates will also be available, but separate to the application update. (These are not 'corrections'.)

In other words, keep re-checking until AVG tells you it's fully up to date. Overnight, it came in three separate chunks, one big 'un and two smaller. But that's not unusual.

Wow! Just downloaded three large 'chunks' never known that before, and this was after a 'normal' download this morning.
Thanks Solartopi.

Sounds like i was a bit constipated.
Maybe I was :-)

Thank for the information; done and all updated.

Because I schedule an update overnight I don't see any of this - only reason I knew a serious update had taken place was because the PC had automatically rebooted after the download/install.

I use the registered product, not the free one, so it may be a bit more "automatic" in getting all the updates

holme, Miros, anchor, daba,

Thanks for all the Feedback. Welcome!! Yes, the Paid version gives you the downloads sooner & more.

I never buy anything on the Internet, may be I'm just old fashioned.
