AVG won't update

I have the free version of AVG Anti-virus. It has performed flawlessly since I installed it some time back, but now the icon is black & gray, and it won't automatically update. When I try to manually update it, I get a message that says "Update Unsuccessful". It has been doing this for the last 4 or 5 days.
Any ideas?

Try re-installing the program.

Thanks Tom,
I just found the answer in the AVG FAQ files, where I should have looked first. I had to delete some temporary update files in the Advanced tab. Program now updates & works again.

It's worth noting that support for the free version ends on the 18th. Visit their website to get the rest of the details.

AVG is not doing away with their free version. It will continue as will updates for it. I have no idea where this misconception is coming from, but it is wrong.

At the end of last year AVG released new version of the free version. The older version is not being supported. You need to go and get the newest version of AVG free if your's is expiring.
