Re: AVG 8 Free update failure


I had the same problem, without changing anything in my
firewall/antivirus etc, and the only way I managed to update was to
close (shut down) the AVG program while on windows (not a computer
restart), reopening it and then trying to update. Suprisingly it worked!

Edit: Hmmm I have the same problem again. While searching other forums
I found out that you're given a low priority ID when you're a free user
and that if you keep trying it'll eventually update. I unistalled AVG
and installed AVAST.

Re: AVG 8 Free update failure



Well on two machines that I have dealings with, I had shut down ZA or
so I thought and seems AVG stopped updating, reinstored ZA with its
updates and away went AVG and up dates.
  I will have to try to uninstal ZA and see what happens. MS firewall
was also turned off.
 Thanks to the guy who told me about Malware’ Anti-Malware, worked a
treat.

Re: AVG 8 Free update failure




Hi,
None of the above solutions worked for me. BUT, interestingly enough ;
I
have tried to update AVG 9.0 by executing the "avgupd.exe" from the
installation
folder. Yes, it works !!!!!!!!!!!
I think AVG cannot run the relating update
module on some platforms.
When I tried to update the AVG from its regular
application console ,
my firewall did not alert that a process wants to connect
to the
internet. So I guess that AVG does not run the "avgupd.exe" at all.
Hence
I run the file manually and it started updating.

You may test this solution
too.

Good luck!

Ehsan
