    I saw on another board that there are problems with AVG again. This is what I got when I tried to update.

    I too, among every one I know using AVG Free edition have been experiencing problems downloading the updates. I am a dial-up user and it constantly is telling me I need to open my browser manually and it is already open. In the last month I have been lucky to get the download on first try maybe 1 time. I am also having the same problems today March 31 mentioned above.
    Someone sent me this information to try. They said they researched the problem and this was the solution. I did not try it until today, (and I still couldn't update.) so maybe todays problems are of a different nature.
    They suggested to open the url.ini file found in the Grisoft folder, in note pad. Delete what is there and put

    [SERVER_NAME]
    1=free.grisoft.cz
    2=ftp.grisoft.com
    3=www.grisoft.com

    [SERVER_URL]
    1=http://free.grisoft.cz/softw/60/fe
    2=ftp.grisoft.com/pub/softw/60/fe/
    3=http://www.grisoft.com/softw/60/fe/
    Actual URL=3

    in its place and save it. I did this but everytime I try to access for an update it changes the number 3 back to a 1., Being you can not contact Grisoft unless you are using a pay version I guess they are wanting to make us all pay.
    Will keep watching this site to see if anyone finds out the solution to this problem.

    When I added the above file I was instructed to rename the original file to to URL.INIOLD and create the new one and name it URL.INI. I did it this way and the Actual URL=3 always stays that way.
