Sometimes AVG is unable to update due to their servers being updated. Verify that you can go to free.avg.com. If you can go there and your program still refuses to update, re download a new installation package, run it, and do a repair installation on AVG. That should fix the issue. If it doesn't, uninstall AVG completely and then reinstall after you reboot 2x.

First of all I would suggest you that contact with your ISP ( Internet Service Provider ) If they say: everything is fine! then perform these tips to fix your issue:-
- Update device drivers.
- Check your Preferred DNS address.
- Disable Firewall.
- If you have Free-trial antivirus then uninstall it.
- Uninstall p2p software's (uTorrent, BiTorrent, Team Viewer.)

Trend Micro 16 Internet security blocking access to Internet after on-line...


Recently there have been problems with systems running Trend Micro 16 Internet Security blocking access to the Internet after an on line update.

SO far the simplest resolution I have found for this issue is to disable the Trend Micro Firewall, and enable this Windows Firewall. This restores access to the Internet in the normal mode and has no effect on the Antivirus Component of the software suite.

Trend has published the following fixes, but as yet I have not had any success using them.

The only other successful resolution I have found is to uninstall and reinstall the Antivirus suite

If you do not have sufficient anti virus / spyware software then you most likely have a virus.
Clarify with what antivirus you have installed if any...
If you don't have any then I would suggest buying one of the following
Bit Defender Internet Security or Antivirus Pro http://www.bitdefender.com/2011/en/internetsecurity2011/?gclid=CLjrkuuU-6kCFQQCbAodJX-fZg
Webroot Internet Security or Antivirus with spysweeper http://www.webroot.com/En_US/consumer.html
or Kaspersky Internet Security http://usa.kaspersky.com/store/all-products?c_id=GOO1673628
Once installed make sure to update the software and run a full scan If you are unable to update the software Reboot the computer and press F8 until you get a menu Select "Safemode with networking" You should now be able to update the software and run a full scan

Hi there for win. vista which free AV will be more suitable..


If your pc is connected to the internet, I would recommend you Avira Antivirus free. This free antivirus is very effective and very updated. You can update the virus database daily or as you desire.
You can download one from here..
Avira Antivirus Free
Once it's activated, it's valid for more than 1 year.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I dont have internet conection then how could i update my avast pro antivirus


Hi!

If you do not have internet connection, what you could do is look for a computer with one or ask a friend that has connection and download an update form their site. Save the update to a disk and run it.

Here is the link to their update page:
http://www.avast.com/download-update

I hope this helps.

I would agree that your PC could be virus infected. Your Norton could not detect the virus for 2 possible reasons; 1.) your Norton is not update or 2.) the virus is "unknown" even on the most recent Norton Antivirus.
If your Norton is not updated, you must download the update and your diagnostics once again. You may also try installing a second antivirus on your PC. I may recommend AVIRA as a second antivirus for its performance and it has a FREE version that you could readily install (http://www.avira.com/en/download/).

How to update antivirus?


Hello,
Your antivirus has an update feature. If there is no clear way to update, use the help menu of you antivirus to see how to do so. You connect to the Internet and hit update.
If you have non-free AV software, your license must still be valid to be able to update virus definitions.
Hope it helps.
