AVG updates

by marinetbryant / January 19, 2007 12:13 PM PST

Is anyone having trouble getting updates for AVG 7.5. I keep getting error: cannot connect to server ewido.net. The websites really blow as to FAQ's.

Been leaving the PC on the last few days so just rebooted and no problem. Guess for some things to take effect you should reboot whether you turn it off every night or not. The schedule of things to do keeps getting longer and the mind shorter!

avg anti-spyware updates
by whitty / January 19, 2007 10:45 PM PST

I have been having trouble with updates the last few days. I get the error message cannot connect to server, or it will download the update and stop before installing.

Try doing them manually from this link

http://www.ewido.net/en/download/updates/

Choose where it says "Daily Signatures" and run the .exe after it downloads. It should install and change your total signatures in the database to the correct amount but just to let you know ahead of time the date will not change on the program itself until the next time you successfully you the program updater.

avg anti-spyware update
by whitty / January 20, 2007 5:42 AM PST

I just tried updating avg as and the green progress bar showed the update complete, but it did not show the update installed, so I waited about 5 minutes and then it downloaded the update and installed.

Many times there are
by roddy32 / January 20, 2007 7:22 AM PST

glitches in that update system they have so the best thing is to just try it later when it fails and if that does not work, then just do them manually from the link I posted before. I always post that link when I post an update in the updates thread.
