AVG Anti Virus 6.00 Update problem

  Nessie 19:21 11 Sep 2003

I have been using this anti virus for about a year. I have never had any problems downloading virus updates. In the last 2 weeks the programme will either not download at all or will download very slowly. Any ideas whats going on. Thanks. I have broadband and everything else including other downloads are fine.

I have been having the same problem, I click on "update now" and nothing happens, going to the web site and trying to download the update longhand also fails, so I think it is an AVG server problem - it has been happening on and off for a lot longer than 2 weeks.

Blaster and Sobig caught a lot of people out, one theory is that a lot of people have now picked up on AVG free and are taking belated precautions, so the server is now overloaded. No way of checking this though. Rumour has it that AVG 7.0 will soon be available as a free version, this has incremental updates so should help.

If you can't wait try avast! 4 click here best free anti virus according to virus bulletin and my favourite. Already has automated incremental update system.

I had the same problem until I followed a recent thread (Jester2K II) and dowloaded it manually from the AVG website. it then updated the programme to version 6.0.516 and needed a restart. As soon as I find the thread will post the link.

 ÑÌÇKÑÂMË the 60 days on avast! is how long it will run without registration, but this is available free to home users. After that just let it do it's thing.
