I have AVG Free 7..5 and am used to seeing a red-yellow icon on my taskbar. Now I see a black-grey icon and when I open it I see that "anti-virus: internal virus database is out of date". However when I go thru the steps to update I am told I have the most recent 'stuff'. Is it time to uninstall and reinstall AVG. I am bothered looking at this icon and worried my AV is inadequate.

Have a look at the AVG FAQ.

If you are using 7.5, I don't think that link is going to give you much comfort, as you appear to have the latest. I feel something has messed up you installation. Uninstall first and then reinstall and you should have no more problems.

INow I see a black-grey icon


It sounds as though the real-time protection has been disabled. Do you have other security products on your system? If so, are they functioning properly? If so, do a full sytem scan with them in safe mode. Let us know if they found anything and if so what.

Thanks to everyone who responded to myproblem! I had inadvertently changed my calendar to a future date (while changing the clock). Setting the calendar correctly solved the problem. Thanks again!!

Run the installer, it should give you the option to repair your current installation. See if this sovles your update problem.
