You can set it to update automatically - open AVG and click Control Center. Highlight Scheduler, and then click on Scheduled Tasks. Highlight "Update Plan in Basic Mode" and click Edit Schedule. Click "Periodically Check for Updates", and select your two hour time slot. Tick "If Internet Connection is not available, check when it goes online" and OK and Close etc.
If on 7.5 you can run it not to show updates or to run a scan at start up.Unfortunately I have upgraded to AVg 8 and if I were you I would stay at 7.5 until Avg sorts things out.cant quite remember how you stop it from showing though.Something in the line of sea urchins fix but update but dont show.its in there somewhere.
Thanks guys- ive checked and now found where you mean. It is already set for an obscure hour... so im guessing.... It is trying to update due those hours, but as im not online it is waiting for me to come online. Therefore i cant do an update without being online?
