If AVG is annoying you ........

AVG is really annoying sometimes ..... if the update fails you keep getting the Update Failed or Failed Connection info balloon. To stop this, open AVG, go to Tools, then look Advanced, then look for Balloon Tray Notifications, switch off Display notifications about update, Apply, OK. Now try manually updating.

If you don't get the update, at least you wont be pestered by the notification.

Do you actually mean Windows Update? I would not do it to be honest, but you can update manually. Open Internet Explorer, then Tools, then Windows Update. You'll go to the Windows site, just follow the procedure.

Or click here update.microsoft.com/mic…spx

I have had no problems with my AVG

Nor me, it works perfectly.:thumbsup:

Mine did this as it would open in my default browser - Firefox & then just hang/crash. I had to change settings so just Windows Update would open automatically in IE & it's been fine since, Can't remember where option was now. It's easy to run manual update as well as Predikuesi has suggested :thumbsup:

i swear by avg, recommend to everyone, its free and simple to use... never had any problems with it like

Until you actually look to see how much resources it's taking up in task manager.

Since i upgraded to AVG 8 free version it hogged my PC ........so i changed back to AVAST again !! :thumbsup:

Another vote for Avast - AVG have stuffed it up with the new version
