AVG Free Still Alive?

I installed version 7.5 a few days ago, updated the virus database and ran scans OK up until today. When I clicked on 'Update Virus Database' as I usually do, I got no response (tried 3 times). Also, no response on my wife's machine (she's still running 7.1 ... gotta get around to updating her machine ;-)

I seem to recall some discussion around here about whether Grisoft was still supporting their free version -- anyone recall the conclusion? ... or know of what may be happening today?

(I'm hoping its just a busy server)

Never mind. I managed to find the AVG Free Forum. Looks like I'm not the only one having update problems tonight. Probably server overload.

Yup, server overload. The moderator of the forum responded with 'the free version updater doesn't have the bandwidth of the paid version'.

Snarky but fair enough I guess.

I also run the free AVG and while I had a little trouble down loading the new version [probably due to dial up ] it seems to be working well.

Its still a great forum anyway. I was just posting in case someone else was experiencing the same trouble.

As I found out, there was an AVG server problem yesterday & it 'magically' cleared up after a number of people complained.

The system works!

Thanks for the responses
