Hello!!

Has anyone had problems lately getting daily updates? Mine starts but then never completes and shows unsuccessful. I have had the problem since moving to SP2 a several months ago. Sometimes it just works while most of the time not. I think I had to manually update from the website one time. I made sure that the 3 programs for AVG were listed as OK in my XP firewall...it is the only one I use. Any ideas?

Thanks,

diego88

Is your system fully patched? Have you ever used another Anti-virus apart from AVG? Maybe you need to try a clean install of AVG. Here is a tutorial that might help. Thanks.

i had simular problems, what i did was...

1. Open up your hosts file in notepad.(or START-RUN-type or copy and paste C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC )

2. Add the following line

193.86.103.19 guru.grisoft.com

This tells your computer to connect to www.grisoft.com (which does work) and not guru.grisoft.com to perform updates.
:thumbsup:

Thanks 10rand. It is fully patched and no never used another anti-virus. Don't think I need a clean install, but, if all else may try. It did finally update over the weekend.

Thank you jaybeast69. I may try this little trick!!
