AVG: .bin file is missing

Threaded View

Hello.

Since my last update of windows vista home premium 64 bit, AVG refuses
to update normally and complains about a missing .bin file. I've
searched online for a solution and tried updating manually from a
folder, but to no avail.
Does anyone know how to resolve this problem?

Kind regards and thanks in advance for any suggestions, Niek

Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling?  That's often the fastest way to
correct problems.

Thx.. that indeed seems to have resolved the issue.

Though.. now at another computer, AVG is acting up again. Suddenly it
stopped working. So I uninstalled it and installed it again. But now
it still complains that the connection to the update manager failed.
No matter how often I try to update.

Hello Niek:

Are both computers similarly provisioned with Vista Home Premium 64bit?

It would be good to know the details for the AVGs themselves; free or
premium, versions, etc.  If premium you are entitled to paid support.
If free, a visit and/or posting to <http://freeforum.avg.com/ might be
next.

Please update this thread as you're able.  Best wishes to you.

Pete

Hi Pete.
It seems the problem has resolved spontaneously (or after re-
installing avg). I use AVG Free edition on multiple computers. One
with XP (sp2) and another with Vista (home premium).

I've had AVG give me that complaint due to lousy dialup
internet connection...  such a poor signal on the phoneline
that it couldn't complete its definition dnld before being
kicked offline by line noise.

(also, if its not set to auto-dial and you're not already
online, it'll say it failed)
