Is there something wrong with AVG?

  pj123 22:33 24 Mar 2004

I am on Broadband at 600kbs with NTL. I tried to update my AVG this morning and nothing happened for 3minutes and 17 seconds. Then I finally got the update. I told a friend to update their AVG but they are on dialup and after 1hour and 30 minutes with nothing happening they gave up.

Thanx for the info where the update files are located.

i've just checked on my PC, and there are 107 update 'bin' files, dating back to 21/09/01 - a total of 111 Mb. Some are large files (>1Mb), some are medium (800K), some are smaller still (200-400K), and some are 'tiny' (45K is typical).

Do i need to keep all the old ones? the major ones (>1Mb)?, the most recent plus the small ones back to the next 'major' one?

should i just 'let 'em live' eating up my HDD space?

what do you do?

This slow updating, as been going on for sometime now. I usually find that it eventually commences downloading in a couple of minutes, if not, then a message appears and advices you to download manually. The connection of late,as been getting very touchy, but I have been told this is due to server problems and the vast amount of people trying to download all at once.

Follow my advice click here to restore quick updating by changing the server url in avg's url.ini file.

crx1600. Thanks, that's the way I went in the end but what happened to the way I used to do it. Double click AVG and select Virus Database. or Service, Update, From Internet, Update Now. They don't seem to work anymore.

daba. You can safely delete all the old ones just keep the last one and of course the installer. I delete all mine every month.

Anyone having problems with the download updates, it's because the site is now very busy, has been for the past few months. If you don't connect within a couple of seconds or see the message, "Can't establish an internet connection" just hit the cancel button then click on "Update" again. It can take up to 4-5 attempts but will come through.

I did the download today and it took 3 minutes on Broadband, normally it's so fast all the colours change at the same time.
