How to fix Email or Updates not working after an AVG program update.

How to fix Email or Updates not working after an AVG program update.

This is a common problem that is most likely caused by a firewall program not recognizing and then prompting you for AVG's files to have permission to access the internet. A good firewall program will actually detect these updates and ask you to allow or deny them access. If this happens the first thing to try is to remove the following AVG files from the firewall permissions and then re-add them afterword

AVGCC.EXE
AVGINET.EXE

and if you also use the Personal Email Scanner...

AVGEMC.EXE

If you get tired of having to do this with your firewall program, these are known to work properly with AVG Kerio Personal Firewall is free for personal use.


another thing to consider is your MBSA is still not allowing updates even though you disabled your firewall

there could be some conflicting issues here

disable your MBSA configure your firewall make sure it allows windowsupdate.com

try to download them and install them

I'm willing to go down this track but my AVG is virus software, not firewall.

ok earlier you turned off your firewal when you went to install

but you still had your MBSA installed as well

im guessing it doesnt matter if you turned your firewall off

by the way what type of firewall is it and how long you been using it

we will forget avg for now

run all programs
sorry download both no reboots required
then run tune up run each of tuneups programs
make sure you do the registry one
then reboot after your finish tune up

run clean up...reboot

defragmenter...prefetch..reboot

try your windows update and do it with no other windows open or programs

No problem finding and running MSCONFIG, but when I diable startup files, they are still active after I don a re-boot.

Any ideas about that?

My mistake. With only startup enabled for the monitor and a defunct program call Zinio (originally used for reading PC World), there is no change. No updates.
