Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this topic but I don't know where else to post it.
I have just downloaded AVG 8.0 free.
However I can't update it, I right click it and then press update. Every time it says, "the connection with update server has failed"
Can anyone tell me why?

There are times that the AVG Free update servers do get busy...AVG Free doesn't get access to the high bandwidth servers that the AVG Pro users have access too.

You can try again.
