Avg not updating virus database

The Proxy settings were set at Auto detect (use Internet Explorer settings). Thanks Johnny Almighty, Ive gone through the identical scenario and then discovered yr solution. Weeks of applying and testing other suggestions, creating more problems, came to nothing.I changed it to direct connection (no proxy) and it was able to update successfully. When Avast tries to connect to its home to get the update, it may be blocked by your firewall, your Malware Bytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) ' Website Blocking', or some other protection program. AVG, a popular security software firm, has made its distinct mark in the global PC security marketplace.AVG antivirus system is the best tool that a user can install in their PC to get complete internet security and protection from threats.Traditional signature and heuristic file scanning engines form the backbone of Symantec’s security solutions; these engines use dozens of techniques to scan files for both known as well as unknown threats.Technologies designed to block attacks just as they transition from the network cable or wireless network to the computer, before they have a chance to establish residency in a physical file on a user’s computer. Behavioral-based protection technology observes actively running threats on your computer and can terminate running programs if they exhibit malicious behaviors; this technology provides proactive protection from entirely new, previously unseen attacks. Thanks again Alan for saving me a lot of time and trouble.I have been using this program for years now and havent seen anything bad about it, except dat sometimes updates dont want to download, but its easy to use it than other anti-viruses which are way more complicated to use and to find updates, I recommend AVG to every person with a PC @ home or schools too.

I wonder how many AVG users have been tempted to abandon AVG for this very reason and give Zonealarms new package a try.Created with the newest and most enhanced features, one unique feature about AVG is the easy downloadable version available online.
