problem with avg and avast

can anyone recommend a good antivirus apart from avast or avg as they block me internet connection once installed and also won't update!

next best is probably Avira.It will be interesting to see if that one downloads.Free one you here

Have you tried.AVG.Tools.Advanced Settings. Ignore Faulty conditions.And make sure nothing is ticked.Or.Components.Double click update Manager.And make sure Start automatic updates is ticked.Also it should tell you when it was last updated.

No you have some sort of virus stopping you from updating any of your security programs for some reason.

There should be no problem with Avast or AVG.

anti virus progs do u have installed?

If u haven't uninstalled the previous versions of whatever anti virus prog it might be the case that u are creating conflicts. Rule is: x1 anti virus prog only.

any idea how i find out what? or do u think it best i take it somewhere for them to have a look? just dnt understand it because up until this morning the only problem i was having with avg was that it wouldnt update but it still said antivirus was up to date and switched on. i could also get on the internet when it was on there. but then as soon as i uninstalled it earlier and went to install it again, its saying all this and blocks me gettin on net. but it also tells me on overveiw that last update was today :S but the update bar gets so far then freezes and says update manager failed!
