I still have it, and I've done that update a few days ago. It's not 8.0. Works fine. Only thing I noticed, is it now asks to restart the computer more often after a defintion update.

Weird. I've never had to restart my computer after any updates with AVG Free 7.5, program or definition, that I can remember.
How often are you getting asked to restart after a definition update exactly?

It is my understanding that support ends for 7.5 at the end of the year anyway.
Tried 8 and hated it. Will be going to something different by then.

Just did the three (all) updates that were available per your request, in order from top to bottom. No reboot required.

What OS do you have?
Just did a def update a couple minutes ago. Same thing, no reboot required.
And let me know if you were asked to reboot?
First check in the Advanced settings... Tools-> Advanced Settings-> Update in the Update Manager settings... it should be set to update immediately...
Now this should solve your restart issue.... Problem is most probably in failure of file replacing on Windows restart. Look into folder where AVG is installed whether file "updatecomps.cfg.prepare" exists. If yes, then delete existing file "updatecomps.cfg" and rename "updatecomps.cfg.prepare" to "updatecomps.cfg". Then restart the computer to see if the issue is resolved.
I *think* that update has to do with all versions of AVG finding false-positives in ZoneAlarm (I use ZA Free 6.1.x) and basically destroying ZA.

Take a look at the zone alarm issue here.
