According your problem I want to tell you that may be some problem related installation. I want to suggest you that you will re-install the antivirus then you will restart the system. After restart the system you will again install the antivirus then you will update the antivirus. If still it will be still very slow update. Then you will check the internet connection. Because some time this problem come due to slow internet connection. If your internet connection is slow then there is no fault with the antivirus.

Re: AVG 2011 Free edition is updating very slow

I am troubled the forum is really only for the AVG Free Edition. The assist is just from other AVG Free customers (and when available AVG workers. If you observe the AVG symbol avatar that indicates that the anyone works for AVG Technologies). Any questions regarding the Pro either demo or Paid for version should be intended for at AVG's Technology or Sales support, which have sufficient tools to assist you with this condition, on the main website Click here or Click here.

I utilize Avast and Microsoft Security Essentials on a number of different computers. however Avast does update every day you can set it to do so softly without you even knowing it is updating and MSE is also calm as a mouse. If you select to go for the modify ensure to install your option to the desktop and do not load it till you have utilized the AVG Remover then load the latest AVG of your selection. From my point of view.

Unluckily, I practice the similar on my computers. I utilize both a computer with windows xpsp3 installed and one with windows 7 starters installed on it. I utilize a free edition of AVG2011. When updating, the whole computer system is slowed down or cannot be utilized usually or at all. As talked about before in this thread, this can catch up to ten minutes. Utilizing earlier editions of AVG did not have this issue.

AS I know about the AVG it is very heavy antivirus means when you start for updating then it will take the more CPU utilization. That?s why I think due to this your update is slow. And another reason is due to slow internet collection. First of all you should check your internet connection. But I want suggest if you should install the avast antivirus. It takes only one time more time then again it automatic update. You will set the update setting auto. I am sure you will like too much this antivirus.
