Hi I have AVG 6.0 the free edition and for th epast couple of days I have had problems getting updates, it says i am receiving the latest AVG update file, but sticks at 0%...any suggestions? should I just re-install it? Thanks in advance

you could either run control manager and do it from there, it strikes me you may have a lot running on pc at the particular update time?

I have ust installed AVG 6:0 on my computer and I have had problems updating virus definitions. I have broadband, first it could not locate my internet connection, then when it did it was only downloading at up to 12kb/sec. Whereas when I normally download it is approx 80-120 kb/sec. It was the same on my wifes computer.

It sometimes takes several attempts to download AVG virus updates; on other occasions they start immediately.

As huggyg71 points out the reason is likely to be that the servers are being given a pounding.
