AVG free AV update hangs

by C Grover - 3/20/08 10:53 AM

For a little while now I've noticed that when AVG goes through it normal 9am-ish auto update (or manually also) it hangs, while waiting for an answer from grisoft. Saying "receive answer".

This is a 2.3ghz p4 1gb ram vista PC machine on a shared DSL line.

This computer ramps up the fan as needed and during this process the fan runs like it's in the middle of some operation.

I try to close out the update but sometimes it takes a while before the process window will close. And right now upon the second try with a manual trigger the fan is still running and the process window has not closed although I went through one or two command steps to tell it to stop.


Yeterday I uninstalled AVG free and reinstalled the latest from their website. It manually updated at that time just fine, but this morning the auto update is once again problamatic.

Has anyone seen this issue?

This machine went in once for a motherboard or something last month. Could this be a sign of a continued hardware issue?

I'll reboot now, and maybe try a manual update later. As I recal an afternoon manual update went through ok the other day.
