My AVG Internet Security virus definition failed. The messag on the screen is: “Host not reachable”. I contacted AVB Support Center, but after hours of failing, I give up hope. Can you help?

Hello there

When update fails for a programs then first you should check the relevant services if they are running fine or not. While updating the antivirus make sure there is no other security program installed because they may conflict with each other. After making sure the services and other programs are not creating trouble restart your Computer and try to run the update again.

If the problem remains the same you can rename the host file ( Windows key + R = Run Type c:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc and Click OK. Rename the Hosts file as Hosts.old ans try to run the update after restarting the computer.
