Hello Shamus,

Since you said your looking for something else here is a few free good av programs. ( Note: avg has so many false positives as of late, many in the pc security field are beginning to not recommend it as much as before. )

No, but i did with AVG 6. It's a perennial problem with AVG.

 

An a/v that you can't update is not much use to anyone.

 

I use and recommend Avast, Avira does get good reviews, as for Comodo it's new and untried, as lurkingatu2 points out it's still the beta version and some folk have problems with it. (If it's anything like their firewall it'll probably yak you to death).

I had the same issue on all 3 of my computers after the latest AVG 8 Free update.

I had to completely uninstall AVG, reboot, reinstall and re-apply the updates. Now it is working fine.
