Posted by Hari Saryono on 20 March 2009
Ever bothered because your AVG cannot be updated?. AVG user, especially for free one often got that message in their bar?
If that’s your case, here’s 2 option you can do to re-enable your automatic or offline update.
I present manual method so you can understand what really happens. This happen because windows Internet explorer or some program crash in last download attempt. Maybe you suddenly stop your connection, or connection lost abnormally. So if you deleting the file responsible for that, your automatic download will normal again.
Now, I use Total Commander to do so. Try SEARCH all ctf extension in drive c:/ or where your windows installed.
I got 2 result, avginfowin.ctf and avginfoavi.ctf. Well just delete both using F8 key
Then go to your AVG again, Click Update button, and here’s the result.
The same method, automatic method is deleting automatically your two ctf file i’ve shown. You can download the software here. It’s only 35 kb
