I have AVG version 10.0 on my Vista laptop. For the past few weeks, it will automatically update, sometimes a few times during the day. It only lasts about 5 minutes, but its always at the worst possible times. It slows everything down pretty bad. I've gone into Update Manager, and unchecked the "Start automatic updates" box, but its still doing it. Anyone have a tip on how to stop this. I know I'll have to manually update it, thats fine with me.

Take a look at this AVG forum solution: http://forums.avg.com/us-en/avg-forums?sec=thread&act=show&id=17152

Looks like more than one check mark needs to be unchecked.
