My thanks to Alan May 6 2012 for fixing my AVG update problem. I had figured out that Zonealarm was the culprit but couldnt see any instances in the program control section of AVG installer being blocked.

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.

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.

AVG Anti-Virus Updates May 6, 2012

I had been having the problem of update failure using AVG Free 2012 and Zone Alarm. Problem is Zone Alarm is not allowing AVG Installer Application to access AVG update server.

To fix - Click on Zone Alarm icon on task bar. Click Computer Protected. Click Application Control xxxx programs secured. Wait for program list to be populated. Click Add. Navigate to C:Program FilesAVGAVG2012 or to where ever AVG 2012 is installed on your computer.

From the list of files in the AVG 2012 folder, select avgmfapx.exe, click OK. Close Zone Alam open windows. Open AVG control panel and click Update Now. A Zone Alarm popup should appear twice saying that AVG is trying to access Internet. Click Allow for each time it asks.

AVG update should proceed and future auto updates should now happen as they should.

I had the same problem as most everyone else regarding the Datbase is outdated. I had looked for some time online and I did come across a few good tips for the problem. One was to open the AVG program then go to tools, advanced setting. In the lower left column under Updates click on manage,it will open the Update management. First try clicking on delete temporary update files, then click yes and try to update again. If that did not work try to do the same process, but click on Revert virus database to previous version. Then do the updates again you should see a file required that will be around 740mb. Then you should be good after that.

My AVG Anti Spyware, Anti Virus, and Link Scanner say Database is outdated. This happened immediately after I paid for another years service. There is no known way to contact AVG or to get help from them. I guess I just got robbed again. I will have to pay to go to another service. AVG has let me down. I do not recommend them to anyone.

AVG Anti-Virus Updates March 7, 2011

Today, my computer hanged during an AVG automatic update, my computer was hanging a lot late last year when AVG 2011 first came out.
Reinstalling AVG fixed the problem for a month or two but the problem came back Today.
At least updating via .bin files still works.

AVG Anti-Virus Updates February 28, 2011

My PC was hanging when I allowed automatic updates overnight so I reverted to manually downloading .bin files and selecting Update from Directory as suggested on various websites and this works fine. I have maintained this for several weeks. When I try to do a manual update now the update appears to work but then hangs on Finishing update process - the PC totally hangs at this point. I can still update by downloading the .bin file and doing a update from Directory but I would like to go back to having automatic updates. In addition the page for downloading the latest updates includes an option to Report, so I thought to use this to report my problem but this gives me the following message:
Warning: Unknown: failed to open stream: Permission denied in Unknown on line 0
Fatal error: Unknown: Failed opening required homescanwithpublic_htmlreportit.php include_path.:usrlibphp:usrlocallibphp in Unknown on line 0
Any ideas on what What do I do now

AVG Anti-Virus Updates December 5, 2010

The AVG free 2011 keeps giving a General Error - Update Failed when I let update automatically or when I select Update now. This has been going on since I installed the 2011 version s couple of months ago. The AVG site has quite a few postings of this problem but gives no solution other than to reinstall and check that your firewall is not blocking access to the AVG site. Your link is exactly what is needed. 1. Save the binary file. 2. Open AVG. 3. Click Tools. 4. Select Update from Directory. 5. Browse to where the .bin file is located. 6. Click OK. Thank you for caring. LB

Thanks a lot there Richard.
You made it relatively easy for me to install the bin file i downloaded. I guess all should follow the same procedure.
Open AVG interface
Click tools from the menu bar
Select Update from directory
Browse to the directory
Click Ok and that it.
All thanks to Rich.
