Thanks for that, but I am still having trouble updating from the AVG Control Centre as per this thread: click here

Now going to try caccy's solution.

Took a little time but just left the connection open for about 10minutes and eventually got it.

AVG free discussion forums have indicated this may be server overload at their end. If all else fails then a manual download from the web site seems to work every time - you simply update from the folder into which you downloaded the update.

PA28, have now downloaded the .bin file from the grisoft site, but how do I now update from there?

  Sethhaniel 15:16 24 Jan 2005

under Grisoft - name it downloads - then run AVG click on updates - then select folder rather than web - it will find it - then you confirm and thats it ;)

Thanks but that doesn't seem to work. I don't get an option to select folder it automatically comes up with the window "AVG Update File Download" etc...

  Sethhaniel 15:52 24 Jan 2005

what options there are

don't think this would work - but select *.bin file hold down shift key & right click - select open with and then select AVGxx.exe or whatever the AVG start prog is Grisoft folder

Sethhaniel, don't worry mate. Found it. I had my AVG setup to download from the Internet. Have changed it so it asks me every time whether I want from Internet or Folder. Now works and have done the update.

Thanks for your help.

Double-click Update Mgr and untick "Do not ask for update source".

You will then be able to select folder and browse to the file.
