AVG updates won't download

  ivesy 16:59 29 Jan 2005

I've recently installed the latest version of AVG anti virus free version. Unfortunatley I'm having trouble updating it when I select 'check for updates' I get the message 'internet connection has failed please check your internet connection settings'. I can download updates for Adaware, Microsoft Antispyware and Zone Labs Firewall with no problems so why not AVG? I've checked the Firewall which isn't blocking it and the Windows Firewall is disabled. I have had some updates from AVG but it worries me when I get the message saying the lastest update is ready but I can't download it! Any help would be appreciated!

You are one of many ( including myself ) who has trouble downloading updates. apparently if the server is busy you just have to keep trying and eventually you will get the download.

This is the normal message that we all see when the sever is busy. Keep trying at different times of the day to find the best time to connect and download. Usually early morning or late evening is best.

..keyed in AVG into the Search engine on the left of the page you would have found numerous threads on this very subject...:-)
