AVG 8 updates

  aine 18:24 06 Nov 2008

I am having a problem updating the above. The update says connection fails. I have uninstalled the program and reinstalled it to no avail. Both of our PCs are having the same problem. We are using MS firewalls, so according to AVG this should not be a problem, are anyone else having this problem? it would be appreciated if any help were available. regards Aine

It is not your PC - I am getting the same since earlier today, I keep trying to update, but in vain. I guess it is a problem with AVG Site updates itself. I will just keep trying.

It's happening a lot - note when you uninstall use the cleaner tool from their website too could make the difference

Same problem here, though I have been manually up-dating once or twice a week since installing AVG8. Seems to be an on-going problem.

Just got it to update at the fifth attempt.

How do you stop that annoying 'the connection with update server has failed etc etc.............' from popping up every ten seconds or so?

Restart your computer, the AVG icon will then regain its usual colours, and then wait until tomorrow to try the update again.
