Avg8 not updating

Rated 4.50/5 based on 581 customer reviews

If I click to check for updates right after it has updated, it says their is an error updating and it requires a restart. Oh I understand that the definition updates don't require a restart, but for the last several days, I have had to restart everyday when AVG tries it's automatic update.Hello, so I just installed this new AVG Anti-Virus free edition 8.0 thinking it would actually work.At first, I tried the activate now (block attack), but apparently you need to buy the damn thing, which apparently led me to a screen with no way to exit out, so I was forced to reboot my comp.The next time I got the message I clicked the other option which was to continue unprotected.Last year, Avast acquired AVG, but fans of either company needn't worry, as both product lines continue their separate existence.Why would a company want to acquire such a similar competitor?

If this is not possible then AVG will either remove it to the Virus Vault or ask you what you would like to do. Once the infected file is moved, it no longer can cause any damage.Select Finish to confirm and exit AVG unless you wish to run a Full System Scan.As long as you are running AVG's Live Update each day, a full scan should only be necessary once a week.You can wait with the restart if you like, but the updates will of course not be setted until you do. I don't enabled the "link sniffing" feature in it, so my visits would not leave any "strange" hits in anybodys SC log.;)Oh I understand that the definition updates don't require a restart, but for the last several days, I have had to restart everyday when AVG tries it's automatic update.
