I have seen many people post a complaint about the AVG Free anti-virus needing a reboot daily after update and there are many fixes for it. This is not what is happening to me, but it is similar.
Everyday, when I start my machine for the first time, the AVG System Tray icon is gray and it says I need to update the Update Manager. This is rather annoying because I have to do it manually each time. I understand that new virus definitions come out everyday, which I am fine with since it does that automatically. But, that's not the problem. The problem is the Update Manager requires this update everyday (which seems odd to me.....).
I have tried going into the settings. I have deleted the "Update Temporary Files". I have tried every setting in the Properties window as well. Update upon computer restart, Update computer Immediately, Require Confirmation from user, Restart Immediately, and Complete at next computer restart. Nothing fixes the problem. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled under the "Run as Administrator" setting for Vista.
Again, it is not asking me to re-boot the computer, for which I have found many people ask about that and they get it resolved. It's just asking me to manually update "Update Manager" daily. I wouldn't mind if it just updated everything automatically. It updates the virus definitions automatically, so why not the Update Manager?
Anyone else come across this?
BTW: the only reason why I am posting here is because I had a lot of difficulties with the AVG Free Forum registration.
