As users of AVG antivirs know, there was a problem updating the virus database. This meant it had to be done maually in version 8.
This has been fixed.
Do an update and you'll be asked to restart your pc. After this, open AVG, go to TOOLS, ADVANCED SETTINGS, choose Dial up, and make sure there is a tick in "Use Dial-up Connections (not close dial-up). Apply.
Then go to Schedules, Virus database update, choose the time, Run on computer startup if task ....., Apply.
