The Internal Virus Database keeps tabs on your updates, if it is not working for some reason I would uninstall AVG and then reinstall and update. An excellent alterative to AVG is Avast

Sorry I missed the last part of your question. No do not use two different AV programs at the same time, they do not compliment each other and can cause problems.

Hi, Make sure your system time and date is correct as well! Double click on the time at the bottom right hand corner of your screen to check!
