hi I have even more problems ill do them steps to make it easier.

1) cant update AVG Virus Scan when tring it says server mismatch

2) norton personal firewall 2003 cant update error LU6002 Live update was unable to extract the files verify that you disk is not full and that you have sufficent access rights on this machine. it is reccommened that only users with power users or adminstrators rights to run live update.

3) I did a virus scan using my avg however it didnt find any viruses.

4) I tried going to systematic update to use there free online virus scan I couldnt do because it said your current secruity settings prohibt Active X control from running there fore the page you are viewing may not be displayed correctly.

Hi scooby43, because of the ActiveX error in your fourth point and the problem with AVG in your first, I would guess it's a firewall problem (just a guess mind you). Have you tried turning off the firewall temporarily to see if you can connect to AVG and also to the Symantec free on-line scanner? You could also try Stinger click here to check for the latest viruses. Also just to mention that at times I also have been experiencing problems getting updates from AVG, but I think the servers were just busy as a re-try later on usually succeeds.
