Even though I set it to update at a certain time of day, it loses this setting. Recently, I've ditched Zone Alarm, & now I'm using the WinXP firewall. Could this be something to do with it? I've re-installed AVG (repair option) but still I have to update manually.
Hopefully that will do the trick but if not then it`s checking that previous AV progs are completely uninstalled (Norton in particular), checking your Windows time and date, firewall permissions, resetting update manager, Ccleaner(+registry option), defrag etc, etc.
Automatic updating seems to be a common problem with AVG 8.0 but it can be made to work (eventually).
So far, so good. No other anti virus to remove, as it's a new computer. Wouldn't use Norton, & I've had to ditch Zone Alarm because of extremely slow running. (That was the reason I changed the computer, but found the culprit afterwards!) I clean up often -but carefully. Thanks for your help.
