AVG updates ...slow responses ; or none at all

  p;3 15:47 29 Jan 2006

anyone else experiencing this? AVG is struggling with its updating seemingly; tried several times to connect for the update but no success; just me or you lot out there too?

I had the problem about a week ago and ended up with a virus. Whether the virus rode on the back of the update or was already there I`m not certain but it stopped AVG working. I wish I was more knowledgeable on these matters but all I can do is make others aware of my experiences.

Hope this helps in some way.

Slow or problem downloading happens from time to time. I generally find that a return visit, one or two hours later solves the problem.A year or more ago, there was a problem with downloading, and alternative links were required, but this problem was soon patched.

johndrew- I think that you will find that any virus that you had, would not have rode on the back of an AVG download. Possibly picked it up, in between updating.

Hi p;3 I have the same problem three times today, received message to try again. Hope this reassures you and the forum. Regards esso.

That's why I moved to Avast free from AVG several months ago. No problems with it at all and it updates automatically

I just had the same problem. I have been trying to update for a couple of days so I removed the AVG entries from the program controls in the firewall and tried again. Up popped the attempting to connect prompt in the firewall, I said accept, and it went off and completed the update with the latest entries for today.

I too gave up on AVG months ago, and have also moved to Avast, as Al94 says it updates automatically with no problems at all.

I just got mine to update a few minutes ago after several attempts, a bit annoying I'll admit but remember it is free.
