AVG 8 update problems

  anchor 15:19 01 Aug 2008

I have the free AVG antivirus, (v.8.0.138), which I installed about 2 months ago, replacing version 7.5.

Previously, updates installed immediately I clicked on "update now". On arrival home this afternoon, I tried to update; Nothing. It appears to try to connect, but receives no update.

Has anyone else found a similar problem this afternoon?.

Someone at AVG must be reading this forum.

I just re-tried updating, and the new definition file came down & installed without difficulty.

I have noticed that if I try to update around 2/3 pm the update can sometimes be very sluggish or even fails. Just leave it and try again in a few hours and it completes no problem. I would assume that the 2/3 pm GMT probably coincides with when the AVG servers are sending out the update to all those who get auto-updates and are just a bit stretched.
