AVG update locks out internet

  Fruit Bat /\0/\ 21:28 31 Jul 2014

New PC came with AVG 2014 installed

Its just updated itself and now locked me out of the internet and says update failed but of course now internet is dead cannot retry to update.

disabled Firewall and retried the update but still same pop up says a bin file is missing.

I've uninstalled it with the proper tool and installed AVAST

other solution may have been to do a system restore

so any one else having same problem with latest AVG update?

Just updated AVG on my Vista laptop and that's OK, so may be just a glitch (I prefer Avast anyway).

I had the same problem last night. I thought it was my internet I was going crazy. Then I realized my mom's computer was running perfect. So I figure it was the AVG with it's update cuz that was the only thing I did yesterday. Right now I uninstalled it and my internet is working just fine.
