AVG Free Edtion is a great everday-user anti-virus program. It provides reliable virus protection for free, and is very user-friendly. Well, except for updating the virus definitons as of late. Seems that the default and only update site is down. But I have an easy way to get the virus updates working again!

1. Navigate to your AVG folder, rename url.ini to url.ini_old

2. Copy the following into notepad and save as url.ini


Actual URL=3

Now when you go to update AVG Free Edition, it will give you three choices to download updates from, with www.grisoft.com being the default <_<.

Nathan reports this updating problem has been corrected. <_<

edit: Oops, guess they're down again. To update your AVG please follow the instructions provided by Nathan in the first post.
