Avg components not updating
There are three options to solve this issue with AVG Free.Firstly, one can make the changes in the settings of Dial-up.I just installed 2014 AVG Anti Virus Free on 9/22/13.The first alert I got was "You are not fully protected! Under computer, it notify's me that the "Database is outdated".Problems can occur and you want to rid yourself completely of the old Anti-virus program before installing a new one. I then used the Removal Tool x32 linked by sjb007, this has removed the AVGIDSAgent but the AVGFirewall and AVGWatch Dog remain, and the same Error Code comes up when I try and uninstall them. I can not uninstall AVG, it says it is not installed when the uninstaller runs, however it is installed.When I open the command center it says there are no active components, I can not update, scan, or anything.Since installing Windows 8 Pro, the operating system is not recognizing my AVG Internet Security 2013, and keeps red flagging that both Windows and AVG Security are turned off. The AVG Control Centre is showing that my computer is fully protected, and all systems are working correctly.As a temporary measure, I can switch off all the Windows monitoring, or activate Windows Firewall and Defender. I worked for quite a while with AVG support staff, who were extremely helpful, but we have done all the checking we can.
Then check off "web browsing" to turn error messages off. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down.
Their view is that it is a Windows 8 problem, because it was working perfectly under Windows 7 Home Premium, and I agree.
I would be extremely grateful if anyone can shed any light on my problem.
One thing I'd try would be to download Malware Bytes (MBAM), get it up to date, then boot to Safe Mode and let it do a full scan to be sure you haven't picked up some kind of malware.` Good luck.
Hi wpgwpg, It's a standard procedure after the update because components which were updated are restarting therefore you may receive the "You are not fully protected" error message for a few moment.
I'm computer says it's connect to the internet although it has been slow and will sometimes not connect to the server of websites.
