Problem updating avg

Days I've been trying to do this on my own and following various red herrings of advice.No the programme is obstinately refusing to uninstall until it says that I remove AVG PC Tune UP which I'd already done.Of course, if your computer is severely infected, you may have to resort to an Antivirus rescue CD from your favorite security company.Fortunately for most of us, many of the antivirus companies provide offline virus definition signatures so you can download them from another computer and then manually install the updates on computers with a limited or no internet connection at all.This problem occurred nearly 2 weeks ago for me, which does seem to rather coincide with Zonealarms launch of their Free Antivirus and Firewall - coincidence I think not.I wonder how many AVG users have been tempted to abandon AVG for this very reason and give Zonealarms new package a try.Secondly, one can choose the required connection settings in the AVG Free Watchdog that allows interaction between the service and the desktop.

While a major release rollout never goes as expected, you may also come across issues that are not necessarily problems with the new OS.Also, the situation could be that you can’t get on the internet during or after a malware attack to update the antivirus signatures.They need to be as up to date as possible to have the best chance of removing the threats.The new version is slowly rolling out to more than 400 million qualifying devices around the world, and because it is a "feature update," you'll be getting a slew of new features and improvements.However, unlike those regular cumulative updates that you get every month, a new major update means a new set of problems.
