I am not sure what AVG have done with the latest update to v8.1 but my XP laptop and my Vista64 Desktop will not update. Initially there was a problem with CTF files. I sorted that by deleating the currupt file. The next problem was every time there was an update the machines wanted to restart. Now I have a General Error. I have been around the forums and tried the various fixes suggest to no avail. I have installed and reinstalled again to no avail.
I have used AVG for as long as I can remember and have converted many others to the cause but along with many other, may be this is the time to change.
I am about to install Kaspersky Internet Security, available half price in W H Smiths at £23.50. Top of the pile in PC Pro tests, so here goes.
