AVG 7.0 interenet connection problem

  Trikie 18:39 31 Jan 2005

I have just installed AVG 7.0 on a replacement computer and trying for updates get the message "Internet connection failed".

The internet works OK for everything else - are there any special settings needed?

Grisoft have problems with their server/updates, which they are aware of, they are working to correct the situation.

Trikie as v Lionheart ? grisoft have some difficulty at times. I am on BB so I tend to leave it on auto update and eventually it installs the update. I know on the previous version 6 you could go to the grisoft site download the update file and save it to the AVG folder, but I am not sure whether this process can be done on 7, someone may pass by with the answer.

Oh no, not another! Have a look click here and click here. Yes you can go to the AVG website, download to a folder and update from there - http:click here. Hope this helps!

Yep! we all get the same message when the server is busy. Just need to keep trying. :o(

Thanks - point taken re searching.

As a matter of interest I copied the updates from the website but then going to the control centre to try to find the way to install from a folder I hit the update command and it did it automatically within 30 seconds!!

That's the way - just tell it to look in the folder you've downloaded the update to.
