Avg edition not updating

AVG Anti Virus Free is one of the best free antivirus programs available today due mainly to the huge number of premium-level features, full antivirus and antispyware engines, and automatic background updating.

Important: AVG Anti Virus Free provides constant virus protection, also called protection, for free.

You can choose the free antivirus or start a 30-day free trial of the suite.

Both AVG and Avast have huge followings, but globally each is strong in different areas. Of course, AVG only makes money if somebody purchases the for-pay security suite.

There's a certain amount of upsell when you go to install the free antivirus, but it's much more laid back than, for example, Comodo.

Secondly, one can choose the required connection settings in the AVG Free Watchdog that allows interaction between the service and the desktop.

If none of these work, then the issue may be due to a file that has to be deleted following which, the update must be restarted.

Grif I don,t know what happened but these past 2 days, I have been having problems with updating AVIRA. I tried the resetting proxy server and manual updates, tried to get into AVIRA forum site but the thing just won't open.) Can someone help me please? Hereunder is the report on the update error: Product information: Product version: 9.0.0.407Updater: C:\Program Files\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop\9.0.0.52Plugin: C:\Program Files\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop\9.0.0.6Temp Directory: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop\TEMP\UPDATE\Backup folder: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop\BACKUP\Installation Directory: C:\Program Files\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop\Updater folder: C:\Program Files\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop\App Data folder: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Avira\Anti Vir Desktop\[UPD] [INFO] Checking whether newer files are available.[UPDLIB] [ERROR] Termination of host name 'personal.avira-update.com' failed.

It tells me that an error occurred and when I do check the report, it tells me that the error has got something to do with Win INet Library..wherever and whatever that is. Error: APR does not understand this error code[UPDLIB] [ERROR] Termination of host name 'personal.avira-update.net' failed.

My thanks to Alan May 6 2012 for fixing my AVG update problem.

I had figured out that Zonealarm was the culprit but couldnt see any instances in the program control section of AVG installer being blocked.

There are three options to solve this issue with AVG Free.

Firstly, one can make the changes in the settings of Dial-up.
