As the title suggests, I am not able to get AVG to update. When I click on the update button (from free.grisoft.cz) it hangs for about 10 seconds and then says that an automatic connection could not be made.
As huggyg71 says, it does this at times even on B/B. Think it's just down to the site being busy. I've always found the best time to check is from 5am through to 11am. I always get an instant connection between those times. j.
Check what version you have(open AVG Control Centre and then go info tab) I currently have version 6.0.520 and virus database 318. If you have an eariler version than this then go to click here and download the updated program.
I too have experienced difficulties in connecting to grisoft for updates. The problems started for me when they changed to free.grisoft.cz which makes me wonder if the paying customers are getting priority and all us freeloading ones have to wait until we can get a connection.
I am not complaining about paying customers getting preferencial treatment as they are the ones subsidising my free version and I appreciate the protection I am getting free, gratis and for nothing.
