You can set the time for your machine to check for updates and this should ensure that its done automatically, even well after the first month

That's interesting to know, I was under the impression that that feature would disappear after a month of use.

Thanks.

Oh dear, having problems downloading 7.5 AVG, got half-way, then told there was an error which was 0x80004004 and to contact technicalsupport@girosoft.com - as I am a pc novice, would appreciate any advice.  How do I sort this please.

Hi Silas,

An aborted download usually means a busy server, which is doubtless the case with AVG at the moment.  Keep trying - you'll get there.

If anyone misses out on AVG Free Anti-Virus, Avast is always worth looking at....I have tried everything from Norton to Norman, Bullguard to Bull...t, and McAfee (ugh)......Avast has done the job perfectly.

I also run Prevx as well, although it does slow my smaller older PC a bit.

 If my memory serves me right, you will only get automatic downloads
if you purchase the "PRO" version. Just check the website to make sure.
