Can you load up the internet using your browser (IE, Firefox etc.)so that you can see your home page? If so, try doing this first to ensure internet is connected, minimise the page and then try downloading the AVG updates. If this does not work, try checking in your firewall that AVG is allowed to connect to your PC by the firewall, if not change the firewall settingsd to allow access.

It may be a fault with the AVG program. Uninstall AVG using add/remove programs in Control Panel and then reinstall it again from click here . See if you can download the updates that will be avaiable with the fresh install.
