AVG anti virus

  Chris the Ancient 21:26 29 Mar 2004

Been away for a few days, and can't see anything under search facilities.

I can't seem to get an update for my AVG free version for my lappy or for Der Boss's machine.

Anyone else had problems?

There have been problems getting updates the last few weeks, this tweak at least gives you a fighting chance and it works:

Trying it now.

double click My Computer
double click Program Files
double click Grisoft folder
double click AVG 6
locate the URL.INI file most likely just shown as URL
copy and paste the file so you have two the same
rename the first one URL.INIOLD
in the second one remove or edit existing text to read

2=click here
3=click here

1=click here
2=click here
3=click here
Actual URL=3

then do an update. you will be accessing all 3 Grisoft servers therefore speeding up your update.

Thanks Valvegrid, I had to crawl all over the Grisoft site to update last time. Regards G.

It's this site, it ruins the formatting, I think you're trying to say the same as in the link I posted.

Have AVG registered version and they have been putting out updates nearly every day for over a week, mine d/l's automatically no problem.

This site can be really frustrating at times can't it.
