    After about 2 months of using AVG 8.0 free it suddenly stopped scanning automatically, and then a day or 2 later stopped updating the definitions automatically. I now have to launch both these manually. Is this built into the free version, or do I have a glitch in mine?

    I think its just a glitch in the program, there have been several problems of late especially in the update manager,but its always sorted itself out,usually by the next day,the program itself has continued to run ok,have no fears its just temporary ....what I have done is to right click on the icon in notification tray and opened the user interface then right clicked on update manager and clicked ignore component state,and just updated manually ....as said the program itself works normally,just update manager having a few bad days ......
