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.

Nice one mate. Thought this was a problem with my wifi initially as I have trouble obtaining a link to my router without wandering around my living room first!
Top man!
I've got AVG 8 free & it's always run automatic updates on starting up with no problems. Just checked my control panel & it was last updated this morning to virus DB 270.4.5/1533 AVG version 8.0.135 & I don't have this dial up box checked.:? Is this just a problem on paid version possibly ?

You probally have your broadband connected all the time. Mine is through an ADSL modem, which switches off with the PC. I use the free version too.
