Re-start needed every day for AVG

  jtt 22:46 13 Sep 2008

I have XP, and have installed the free AVG V8. It updates every day (as expected) but after it updates, it notifies me that I need to re-start my PC. Is this normal?

No it is not normal but no idea why it should either.

Is it your only anti virus?

Open AVG and go into Tools.Advanced Settings.Updates. Make sure update immediately is dotted.Apply .Ok See if that helps.

I had a similar problem and found it to be zone alarm blocking it without advising. I went into za progs and found avg8 and made it allow. If you are not using za check out the windows firewall and make it allow avg8.
