AVG update problems

  trevpearson 16:13 27 May 2005

Since moving to 2mb Broadband 2 weeks ago, I've not been able to update my AVG programme.
The update downloads, but then reports update unsuccesful.

Zonealarm is installed and XP Security reports that AVG is out of date, but.....

Any idea's/thoughts?

For security reasons I would sort this ASAP

Why not uninstall and try a new copy from magazine disk or download and then see if that will update to latest definitions?

Ensure Zone Alarm programme permissions is set to allow AVG to access net

There have been a number of threads here about the difficulty of updating AVG free version

If you still can't get it to work I would ditch it and try Avast instead. You sure can't continue to run without updated protection

have you checked for viruses/ spyware/etc? If AVG won't update it could be a nasty that's preventing it doing so; and if it's out of date you are open to nasties.
Try uninstalling AVG & installing a new copy.

Thanks for the advise. It is being heeded.
