  musichead 18:03 05 Mar 2004

i used to use norton virus protection,but was not happy with the service,so i was recommened avg 6.0 free edition.I dl and installed it in my pc with great results could not belive it was free.then a couple of days ago it would not give me any updates and have been trying ever since.When ever i try to update it will not connect to the net and says it cannot establish a connection,but i know i am on line.I have tried all the usual things like uninstall and re-install ,and have tried to get in contact with avg theselves but still no joy.if anybody has any ideas please help,i am worried my pc is not fully protected.

Have had trouble updating mine the last few days - think it's just that their servers are very busy due to Netsky etc. (see other posts further down)

this week we had a very large update file of nearly 3meg. its usually about 80k. so maybe there are no updates for this week.
i find if there is an update it works fine but if no update is available it sometimes freezes.
