Hello AFQR2009,

Please be informed that mentioned cumulative program update was released on 26th on CNET and on 27th globally, but it is currently available only for random group of users. Eventually, the program update is released without limitations after a couple of days. This mechanism allows us to reduce the load of our update servers and is common for distributing non-critical updates by software vendors.
Please note that AVG virus database updates are distributed to all AVG users at once, as they are critical for system security.

If you don't want to wait, just launch latest AVG installation file (Free, Pro) and run repair installation.

Thank you

Hello AFQR2009,

Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconveniences caused by this re-occurring issues.

Our release plans (to release compatible version with Mozilla Firefox 11 two weeks before its release; and to release compatible version with Mozilla Firefox 12 three weeks before its release) were unfortunately delayed because of additional discussions and verification of new features and related functions.
We do our best to manage (minimize) the delay and to avoid similar issues in future.

Thank you

CNET bought a house!

Take a look inside the house where we will be testing connected locks, thermostats and other smart home products so we can tell a complete story.
