AVG8 Free updates problem

  toofy 16:01 29 Aug 2008

For a few days now I am warned that "the connection has failed" re AVG Update Manager. previuos posts suggest the problem AVG were aware of had been fixed, so my error may not be related. 'Help' suggest I make sure the settings are OK. I cannot see anything wrong but could be looking in the wrong place! Is this fault local to me? Any help to rectify will be appreciated.Thanks.

I've had the same problem the last two days as well.

I am fairly sure that there is actually no problem with the AVG Site - so-called 'problems' IMHO are simply due to the vast amount of people all trying to update at the same time.

I too had the same 'problems' but my AVG is now updated successfully. I think all that is needed is a little bit of patience, and try again later!

Thanks for responses. I have now been able to update AVG Free. Today 18.00hrs UK.
