I tried downloading this last night before seeing your post. Twice after download and attempting to install I received a corrupt file notice. Today I notice the file name has changed from AVG Free 7.5.408 to AVG 7.5.428. Maybe that was the problem.

Downloading at present and will try again.

Thanks for the update Happy

Installed perfectly... nice interface! I think that old build of 408 was corrupt. Sad

When trying to update to 7.5 free_428 a818 I continue to get corrupt files error as follows:

extracting licensce_us.txt
extracting avgsetup.exe
extracting files.dat
crc failed in files.dat
unexpected end of archives

Destination folder per avg

Have tried numerous times even reinstalled 7.1 408

In reply to: Update avg 7.5

I had the same problem trying to download AVG 7.5 build 408 but trying Marianna's link above for the later build of 428 was successful on first try yesterday.

Only advice I can give is to keep trying. Wink

I tried numerous times to download avg 7.5 over the last two days without any sucess.

Submitted post at avg forum and castle cop forum and their suggestions did not help.

As a final attempt I stop protection with the exception of avg. This time i got a complete download and install.

Turn protection back on and scanned no problems found.

Thanks for the reply

Great job, Ray!

Persistence usually pays off... did in your case. Sometimes its hard to find the real reason something does not work. I like your approach of isolating it. Grin

In reply to: First post in this thread by Marianne gave instructions..

Thanks, I have the first post. BUT as I said in my post I have Program version 7.0.408. Mariann's post refers to 7.1 - 7.5. I need to be sure as I am not experienced. Thanks

Tallin... I failed to pick up on your version...

In reply to: AVG UPDATE

I do not know the answer either. Maybe best you wait for someone who knows for sure.

Sorry for my omission and confusion. When resolved you will like AVG 7.5.

All the best,

Glenn

AVG UPDATE

In reply to: Tallin... I failed to pick up on your version...

Thanks for your reply, I have to be careful.
I also downloaded AVG free 7.5.exe so could uninstall my existing 7.0.408 and install 7.5, but I will take your advice and wait for others to perhaps give their opinion here.

Good planning...

In reply to: AVG UPDATE

Like you if you get no other solution I would do as you have indicated by removing the old version and try for install of Version 7.5. There must be a way for people that are in your situation.

All the best!

AVG UPDATE

In reply to: AVG UPDATE

Hi,

I would download the NEW 7.5 version. Then I would make a new restore point. Then uninstall the old version. Use CCleaner for cleaning up remnants, if there are any.

Reboot and then install the new version, you already downloaded and you should be fine Happy

In reply to: AVG UPDATE

Thank you for your advice.

After making the new restore point and before uninstalling the old version, I would need to go off line for safely sake then uninstall the old and install the new, then reboot...right. Then use Ccleaner. As mentioned I am inexperienced so need to get this right.

Yes, go OFF the internet - then

In reply to: AVG UPDATE

take your time to uninstall - reboot - run CCleaner and then install the new version.

Good Luck Happy
