avg problems

I have been having problems with avg anti virus.

When I go to updates it doesn't update, it just stays on the ready mark and doesn't move, then it says server returned error state please check settings in manager.

Well in the end I un-installed it and downloaded it again.
Now I get internal database is out off date.
When I try to do updates again ,same thing.

Any id idears please.

Been happening a lot with people i think the AVG server gets loads of requests and it backlogs it,it does download eventually you just have to keep trying.

Try 07:30 in a morning Rarely fails

Yes, that's the message we all see when the server is busy. Early morning or late evening is the best time to connect.

If you try two or three consecutive times during a busy period, you will usualy get a connection and download but better to try at times as above. I managed to get a connection about an hour back. Quite a large download this latest one. 4100.2 Kb.

Thank you,

Could you tell me if I have my settings right.

In the setting, then proxy I have do not use proxy sever. Is this right?

In dial up I have use dial up connection ticked also automatically open this connection.

I hope these setting are right .

Somebody found how to contact all 3 servers with AVG 6.0. I remember 6.0 was slow updating until the modification to the ini file made it work.

We must have the same problem with 7.0 only contacting one AVG server.

You will have to uninstall it completely

Go here, follow the sticky heading "If all else fails, go radical"

I had to give up, ver 7 was unstable on Win ME.

This worked with AVG 6.0
give it a go it might work with 7.0

Go to C:\Program files\Grisoft\AVG\7.O
Find the following file URL.INI

The file contains 10 lines. 1 to 4 are(change* to.)
Than a blank line
Lines 6 to 10 are(remove * in http, change other* to.)
Actual URL=3

ps I have change (/60/) to (/70/). The /60/ was in version 6.0

I do not have AVG on my system, so I dont know if this will work for version 7.0

Then a blank line





Actual URL=3

(This should give you three choices from your download site).
