Hello, I have had the free AVG for a year or so, with win98 and dial up, and always received auto updated on my e-mail or web. Now I have gone to XP and AOL broadband it will not auto update. Can anyone please help?
Hi, I've checked my Zone Alarm fire wall and got all AVG ticked, however, i'm not sure about AOL, having just got it i had better see if there's something there, I'll tell you something though, when i try to update, the update window appears, with the message- 'dial up' and 'the modem is not configured properly'. Now i have just changed from dial-up to broadband and have not got a clue how to configure the modem etc. I just put the AOL disc in and it did it all for me, i think. Can you help please?
I really did not have much choice, as one of my family bought it for me with a years subscription, as a present. Being family i could not really refuse it. So i got it by default if you like, and now i'm stuck with it, like it or not. I must say that having come from internet explorer and outlook express on dial-up, it is a bit confusing, in your face, and not really controlable ( my first opinion). I have never found the set up of any e-mail/web easy, mainly due to the obscure wording of the many tabs thrown up at you. Is there any book/magizine that explains every step of a set up in easy, everyday, basic language?
I'v just checked what you said Jak_1 and it put up about 50 combinations, with what I call ' un friendly' descriptions, like, proxy, proxysever, gateway, commpresion,ULR or was it URL. Now I know that everyone will say proxy means this and commpresion means that, BUT what I need to know is do I enable them or not? because they are meaningless to me. Sorry to go on, but they just a well might say apples and oranges.
