AVG 8 Update Manager Help.

  Hiall 08:46 22 Jul 2008

Can anyone help please.
Installed AVG 8. 4 days ago and I think its a lot better than the old version.
But the last 2 days when I start up PC the little avg icon at the bottom right of screen tells me now that update manager is not active. (which it isn't)
To solve problem I have to update straight away and then everything is ok.
Not a big deal I no, but why for the first 2 days when I installed avg was update manager active whenever I switched PC on and not now ?

through Advanced settings, schedules, virus database update schedule and don't have a problem.I also set it to 'Run on computer start up if task has been missed'. Works fine for me.

I had a similar problem after I upgraded and found that my firewall was blocking the update manager

Good morning Hiall,

I have the same problem intermittently although I have Update set to check every day. Yesterday the warning kept popping up, today everything O.K. It's annoying but I just live with it!!

I had lots of problems so fully uninstalled using revouninstaller then reinstalled and tweaked firewall settings. So far so good.
