yup...looks like my last update was on 1/25 with the next scheduled for 1/30. I forced the update...and received a 'connection failed' error...

first time this has happened to me....I wouldn't be so dramatic as to throw the whole thing out due to this...maybe its down for maint...now if this goes on for a week, then that's a diff story.

Its been 2 days now and the one prior to the 25th took a couple of days too. I just uninstalled and reinstalled it for kicks with the same error you got. Never had it with the prior version. I wont dump it, but if this keeps up on a regular basis its not the AVG we all respect and trust.

This happened to me a few days ago.

I just tried it now and it didn't connect. Hopefully this is only temporary... :(

One of their recent updates was pretty big, I'm thinking their servers were overloaded for a while. I ahd the problem too but it seems to be okay now.

The free version of AVG is extremely popular (as expected, it kicks arse), so the abundance of users keep those servers honest. In the previous free version, there was a 'hack' to allow it to update from the paid subscription servers, but I read it can't be done on this new one.

Your best bet if you're having trouble is try low traffic times, like after hours. I had trouble myself earlier but gave it a whirl right now (after midnight EST) and it connected instantly.
