Problem in updating avg antivirus
The rollout of AVG updates will happen automatically in the next few weeks, so there is no need for you to take action.Once you’ve updated, you’ll be greeted by the latest AVG dashboard.Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the features to make sure you’re fully protected.If, for whatever reason, you find that you’re still running an old version, you can manually update to the latest version by downloading and running the installer that applies to your AVG product..So manual update does not work -- just like Curly Sue stated!
As I type this, Avira's component startup portion of the setup process stalled. So I guess I'll do the cntrl-alt-delete song-and-dance, although its been my experience that windows prevents the closing of security applications. l'd sooner seek out a different freeware app, open-source perhaps.
This was to have been some sort of immediate follow-up update. I tried the Fusebundle ("Manual Update Tool") and while that works it's highly undesirable to download over 200 MB daily just to update. Restarted the computer, and manually removed all leftover files and registry settings associated with Avira that I could find. Installed a fresh copy of Avira Free Antivirus, and it still fails to update.
