When i do, It says it can't connect to server. I went to the
settings for updates, and i've done everything it says. I still can't get it to update. Does anyone have any suggestions?

A: Solved: AVG Free Update Configuration

Maybe try uninstalling it and reinstalling it?

But first, make sure your firewall is not blocking AVG from updating!

The tweaks I've made to this system are critical and will cause system instability if not configure automatically. In addition to that, I've made custom scripts made with AutoHotkey to optimize the compatibility of some of my security software.

Had this problem on 2 machines; I read and tried all the fixes suggested on the internet; about a dozen of them over and over again.
Problem is the HARDDRIVE!
I had a fresh install and had the problem with existing harddrive.
Also had problem on an up and running computer about 4 months old; just never got around to fixing it.
I tried all the fixes on the new one to no luck. I know some windows setup settings look for certain hardware for some setup processes so I tried an old drive I have kicking around. I Cloned the new drive onto it and ran the computer and then SP1 and all worked. I cloned back to the new drive and about 187 updates have now installed. It's working perfectly.
I had the same problem on the second computer and cloned it onto a different drive and then to an SSD also; it worked on both drives; also had 187 updates install.
Even after reinstalling the OS twice and immediately trying the SP1 it still didn't work until I cloned to the older harddrives.

Answer Match 49.98%

This is not a problem, merely a request for illumination. I regularly update AVG Free by downloading various large files onto a memory stick on someone else's computer, and then do an update from directory. This works.
The question is, why does it take such a long time? What is it doing? It gets up to about 40% done fairly quickly and then hits treacle. Let me emphasise that this is not a problem at all. I start it up, go to bed, get up in the morning, hopefully, and the update is finished. Totally painless, no problem. I'm just curious.
For what it is worth, nothing, I suspect, on the basis of no evidence whatsoever, that the treacle phase may be the virus definitions. I don't know why I suspect that.

Hi. I have the free edition of AVG Anti-Virus on my PC. Well, I like to check for updates often and I often have a hard time to doing so. It seems like almost every time I try to get the updates I get an error that says "An automatic connection to the Internet could not be established." What is that supposed to mean? I am always connected via dial-up when I try to get these updates. Could my ZoneAlarm Basic firewall be blocking it and I don't know it? AVG has full access rights to the Internet in ZoneAlarm so I don't know what's going on. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks to all the TSG input about my Zone Alarm update installation problem.​
Even though it was slow as hell ( I have dial-up), I re-downloaded the update file and checked the Properties box with the previously downloaded file.

I saw that my first downloaded file did not include the "digital signatures".

Fortunately, the second downloaded file did, and I installed it with no problems.

Question:

I assume that it must have been a mistake from Zone Labs, but could it have been a problem with my computer? Some of my downloads for other applications don't show digital signatures in "properties", but installed with no problems.

Anyway, I would like to pass this bit of information on to others, because I'm sure I'm not the only one that experienced this problem.

If the TSG heavyweights think this tip is worth passing on, I'm sure they will.

Again, thanks for educating me more about computer operations. Maybe someday I'll be at a point of knowledge when I can help others, but that's a long, long way off.

Hi! XP lives on digital signatures I think....it complains a lot if your file doesn't have them, but some places show you how to add it when you install a program...

Having it unisigned was probably just an oversight by ZA. Thanks for including what you did that fixed your problem

I have installed a RAM optimizer app called FreeRAM XP Pro and get the signature message but it works OK. Just have to give it permission to run without being digitally signed...

Tonight I received the following error message when I tried repeatedly, but unsuccessfully, to update my free version of Avast antivirus:

Error processing packages.
0x20000011

Finally, I gave up trying. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled the free version of Avast. The program installed without any problem; however, for some reason I've thus far been unable to install the latest update, either automatically or manually. Although the onscreen indication read "Initializing, please wait," I waited 15 minutes and nothing happened.

Shortly thereafter, I received an automatic onscreen prompt from Avast to upgrade, but after one minute I got the following error message:

Last encountered error:
Invalid File Signature. Setup will terminate.

I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who may help me solve this problem. Thank you

Possibly, your sister powered down the laptop during updates. Try system restore from recovery console:If you have Windows XP CD... (if you don't have Windows CD, scroll down)1. Boot from the CD.2. When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts. Select the repair or recover option by pressing R:3. You'll find yourself at this screen:4. Once you are at the Recovery Console you will be given at least one choice of Windows installations. Normally the choice you want is the number 1 choice. Click the number 1 key at the "top" of the keyboard and click enter.NOTE: at this point your numbers to the right of your keyboard are turned off. If you insist on using these keys for your numbers remember to hit the Numbers Lock key before clicking a number over there or your computer will automatically reboot and you will have to wait through the previous steps to get back to the console. 5. You will be given a message asking for the administrator password. Unless someone or something has messed with your computer there is no password so you just click the Enter key. 6. This will bring you to a prompt that says: C:\WINDOWS>7. Type: cd \ Press EnterNote: between "cd" and "\" there should be a "blank space" otherwise the command won't work8.

Hey guys, I had an Updating issue recently and am still not clear on the best settings for the Update Settings?

I just installed a bunch of Optional and Recommended Updates, but was sure to exclude the Bad Guys for the W10 Upgrade stuff: KB3035583 and KB2952664

So I still don't know if this is the best or not. I was not accepting Optional and Recommended before, but since having this Update issue though I would change my actions.

This is my current setting:
1. ?Check for Updates but let me choose whether to download and install them? Is this good, or should I got with checking for them Manually.

Now wondering what this setting should be:
2. ?Give me Recommended Updates the same way I receive Important Updates?

Can someone shed some light on this for me? Thanks, Nasty7

Hi all,

Need some extra help here. I attempted to get the debugging tools to read the minidump files post-mortem, but can only get into safe mode, which doesn't help me. I've attached the zip of the output from the jcgriff2 app.

I'm not positive, but it may be related to an attempt to install Spanish & Japanese optional language packs to Windows 7 Ultimate installation alongside a recommended update.

Initially, it crashed during start up at the 'configuring windows' screen at 15% into it. Two system restores later to take me back two updates, and now it returns to the 'configuring windows' screen on startup and crashes at 0%. Not sure if additional system restores will do much good.

Thanks,

Hi,

I have an Acer netbook running windows 7 starter...for several days each time I close the laptop there are updates that attempt to install but fails to do so for some reason...there are also issues of configuration,seemingly every time I start the laptop.

I have read the uploader tool page but before going through this process would like to ask why the laptop fails to update ? ...I recently got rid of any microsoft office programs...does this have anything to do with the failure to update ?

below are the updates that have failed several times ... sorry but the image is very small !

It`s a couple of days since I posted the above but the updating failure continues...I`ve no idea if the failure is caused by this laptop not in fact having the required internal programs to ensure the updates are accepted...something is obviously not right.

edit ti add...maybe the laptop just doesn`t need these updates...?

Had an incomplete install of a program...computer otherwise working fine...did a system restore to try to go back to preinstall...in the system restore shutdown and restart, now hung up in a update configuation loop that is in third step up to 99% that shuts down only to do the same thing over and over again. So my system never gets to the mainscreen acknowledging system was restored.
I tried F8 going to safe mode, but configuation step 3 takes over again, goes to 99% and shuts down to restart.
I tried the vista 64 sp1 disc...cannot acccess another restore point since it says the system is already in restore mode....just never gets there with the endless 3rd step update configuration loop.
The disc also does not offer the repair/update mode as an option...only full install.
I do have norton ghost 14 on the system...so there is a complete backup file on another internal drive...but no way to get to it to initiate a recovery.
VERY FRUSTRATING!!!
Could time remedy the situation...letting the computer lay idle for a few days...then try to boot up??? I've heard that this on occaision could work with Vista.
Any other thoughts???

Windows update was interrupted yesterday and now I'm getting all kinds of errors.

2-No audio device. My sound is only working when the error message pops up.

3-Generic host process for Win32 services has encountered probelm needs to close.
(this occurs when I boot up computer)

4-unable to create C:/document and settings/jamie/application data/BVRP Software Netwaiting Moth log txt.file (this happened when I booted computer

I called dell as the system is only 4 months old, and i have warranty, however they informed me that for software related issues they would charge 264.00!!!

You could say that I'm rethinking my purchase choice.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi every bodyI downloaded Windows 7 32bit (no key yet), I've tried upgrading Windows Vista SP1 but when step 2 (expandeing files) reaches 21% the installation stops with following error "Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed."I tried to install Windows 7 in a new partition but the process reaches 27% this time and stops with same error.I've reformatted my hard disks completely and installation process reaches 99% then stops with same error.I checked BIOS settings and found only DVD and HDD listed (no third option).the Microsoft suggestion about the registry tweaking did not apply for me (and I tried to install a fresh copy from scratch).I'm using 2 HDD in RAID0 configuration and works OK with Windows Vista, I did load the drivers to Windows 7 during installation but still getting same problem, any suggestion???

A:Windows (7) could not update the computer's boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed.??

Simple solution found for Dual Boot errors!
 
 Here is an update. Since no one else has seemed to find a solution I actually managed to find my own. Just to recap you on what had happened to me, I was trying to dual boot Windows 7 x64 with Windows Vista Ultimate x64. Somewhere in my use with Vista my BCD was corrupt/deleted and caused this error to appear. (Windows could not update your computer's boot configuration.) After searching my computer I found the registry settings were correct, and file access to the folder that contained the BCD was correct, However my BCD was corrupt/missing and so I was unable to finish the installation and get my computer to dual boot. I found this out by typing bcdedit.exe in command with admin access and it gave me the warning "BCDedit.exe could not be run. BCD is either corrupt or missing".
 
In order to fix this it was quite simple. I had to use the original installation disc for vista to repair my computer's boot files. Unfortunately I didnt have an install disc that would work with vista since I purchased mine before SP1 came out, so in order to repair it I had to create a slipstream disc with the SP1 updates added to it. after repairing I instantly was able to see both Windows 7 and Windows Vista in my boot manager when I restarted my computer. I easily fixed and finished installation with out a hitch, and I'm now staring at internet explorer inside of Windows 7 typing this message. I hope this will help anyone else ou... Read more

After that I have been getting the msg "Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed. I've check on a few forums and someone always says to restore the default value for the UpperFilters registry entry and then restart computer.

So yesterday automatic Windows update installed IE10, today I noticed that links in certain applications open in IE10 instead of my configured default browser, which every link from this or any other application used to open in before that update and the reboot that followed the update.
I checked the Default Programs section in the system control panel, expecting maybe Microsoft wanted to get themselves in any more trouble with the EU and changing the default to IE. This was not the case however, all the associations were still pointing to the configured default browser, I noticed however I could not uncheck the defaults already set.
So despite the obvious configuration being correct, links would still open in IE10 even after yet another reboot.
I went ahead and checked the registry associations, and found that http(s) protocol as well as htm(l) filetypes were associated with Internet Explorer with various EditFlags set (presumably to prevent changing them through the user interface, or to ignore the user interface settings).

Seriously Microsoft? Don't you have enough trouble yet?

Can 10 be deleted and be brought back to 7 if I hate it?
 

A:10 Free Update?

I like Windows 10 so far. The best thing to do prior to upgrading is to create a backup image of your Windows 7. The image will hold all your programs, windows updates, and data. While Windows 10 can be downgraded back to previous OS within 30 days, for some people the downgrade did not go smoothly. So it is best to have an image. I use Macrium Reflect Free. Be sure to create the bootable rescue DVD. You need to boot it to restore from an image. If you have a USB external drive, then store the image on that. If not, then create a partition on the hard drive and store the image there.

This might help to solve the problem. first do a restart to see if that will fix it, if not uninstall the program, click on start, then control panel click on classic view, then double click on Programs and Features. This will bring up Uninstalle or change a program. Locate the AVG 8.0 and RIGHT click on it. You will see two options uninstall or change click on uninstall and this will remove the program. Go back to the AVG web site and installed the program. You will get the latest version with all the update. Then click on the update if it doesn't automaticly update. Report back and post the results. Make sure you have a Internet Connection, good luck.

Click check for Updates and point AVG to the folder containing the update on your desktop.

Hi,
I have been trying to dodge my windows 10 free update for quite a long time. I have been deleting certain Windows update that was trying to get me Windows 10 for free, when I did not want. And I got a relief, when they announced that Windows 10 has to be finally paid for, therefore it won't download (apparently it was just only what I though). So, my system is not that good, and I don't really want to upgrade it from Windows 7 to 10, however my automatic updates decided to prank me and downloaded me Windows 10. For free. A month after it became ''paid for''. Now I have something which is going to install when I restart my laptop (I'm trying to keep it on sleep mode for now). So I want to ask if anyone would be helpful enough to get rid out of the Windows 10 update? click here - here it is :(
Will be grateful for a proper help!

Hello Friends,
I want to share with you some "adventures" with Macrium last evening. Started the program to make some backups, a notice popped about a new update, so I clicked on download and the rest of it I posted yesterday - 3 attempts failed. So I left the update and started to make a system backup, all was well to the end, then the verification started, at about 60% the program's display started turning white, sometimes partially disappearing but the progress bar still shows working up to the end. At the end all displays came back to normal and verification was OK. Today while starting Macrium, got again the notice about available update - in short, today it worked, update was done.
How about that.

I'm very surprised to find that AVG has a new program update for AVG 7.5 A/V Free. And I'm a little suspicious as to why they'd offer this when they're trying to get everyone to update to 8.0 (especially since they've supplied constantly changing end dates, etc. -- the last of which was 8/31/08). Any ideas as to what this update is for and why it exists?

I'm still using 7.5 Free (haven't had time to update to 8.0), but am hesitant to install this new program update. Is it actually for 7.5 or a sneaky way to upgrade you to 8.0 (which would be bad, because you need to uninstall 7.5 and install 8.0).

Any thoughts? Info below:

Recommended Update:
AVG Free Control Center (version: 545)
AVG Free User Interface (version: 549)
AVG Free Edition Virus Vault (version: 548)
AVG Free Edition Test Center (version: 548)

Localisation English (version: 549)
Update component (version: 541)

Optional Update:

There *was* a new AVG 7.5 Recommended Program Update: v7.5.526

I chose not to download it immediately because I didn't know what it was for. However, when I went back this morning to check for updates, it was gone, and there was only Virus database updates (which I did update).

So my AVG Free A/V 7.5 status right now is:

Program Version: 7.5.524
Virus base: 270.4.2/1523

So what happened to that other program update (v7.5.526)? Did they end up taking it down for some reason? I've seen that some people had installed it, but since it's no longer available, many won't be installing it (unless they put it back up).

Maybe it was just something to fix the "banner ad" that reminds you of the supposed end date to reflect a new end date, but it's weird that the update is no longer available. Not sure what that means/implies. Maybe the server for that update is too busy this morning so it doesn't show up? No idea...

Any thoughts?

I need to set up three user accounts on two computers the accounts on each computer is going to be monitored.
Each user will be assigned access for certain folder or files and certain applications, like internet explorer.
And all usb ports and dvd drive will be blocked. Only the admin will be allow to have full access.

So i need to do something that allow ( managers) to monitor employees activity on the system during working hours.

On one pc is windows xp pro on the other os windows 7 home premium.

Any idea how i can acomplish this task?

I.was thinking of group policy on both computers but on home premium there is not group policy.

Also the users will be using almost all the same programs and files just the with different information.

Thank you in advance.

A:group policy configuration and computer configuration question

But for Windows 7 Home Premium you will not have the
Local Security Policy so you may need to upgrade to Windows 7 Pro for that.

This is easier to control with a server like Windows Server 2003 or 2008.

I thought it would be a good idea in keeping with the overall goal of this site to start a thread to give people a list of legal and secure sites for downloading free or dirt-cheap movies, music and software/games.
I believe this would helpful in terms of not just telling people not to visit/support pirating websites,
but to also give them other alternatives so that there wouldn't be a temptation to go there anyway
(And also for people like me that Don't want to steal, but also don't want to pay more than I have to)
 
Master list of sites for free/dirt cheap movies, music and free/free to try software:
 
Music
 
Open Music Archive
LEGAL NOTICE:
Contains music with expired copyright according to UK copyright law, which states that the copyright expires 70 years after the author's death.
As such, some of the music may be considered "pirated" in countries with longer copyright periods.
For example, The longest copyright period I know of is Mexico (100 years after the author's death).

A:Good source sites for secure & legal free movies and free/free to try software?

That is a good question.
When I think about it Hulu does have movies.
I use Netflix.
I can use http://www.epixhd.com/ as I have Dishnetwork and can use that to be able to watch. Yup, just tested works good.
Many of the Movies channels can be watched that way.

Hi everyone!

Can i just download the definition files of AntiVir from Avira.com instead of using the update program that came with AntiVir Personal? I heard that Avira made a significant update to it's definition files so I can't connect with the free servers because lots of people are also connecting. I haven't updated in two days...

A:AntiVir Free Update Question?

Avira was able to connect to the servers after about ten minutes of trying to connect. I was able to update the AV. Thanks anyways.

A:Zone Alarm (Free) Update Available

Overview: A security vulnerability exists in specific versions of ZoneAlarm®, ZoneAlarm Pro, ZoneAlarm Plus and the Zone Labs Integrity™ client. This vulnerability is caused by an unchecked buffer in Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) processing which could lead to a buffer overflow.

Hi,I use AVG Free and there's a new large update to the program. However, I'm uncertain what to download/update. You can see a screen cap here:http://forum.doom9.org/attachment.php?atta...mp;d=1177169690As you can see, there is a Recommended Update and an Optional Update, yet they *almost* seem to be the same thing (though the second is larger than the first). At the very least, they seem to contain much of the same stuff with the same names and version numbers. 1. Do I need to even update at all? I can still download virus definition updates and other updates using 7.5.446.2. Is the option here to update *either* the Recommended Update OR the Optional Update? 2a. What does the Optional Update have over the Recommended Update?2b. If I download the Recommended Update, will it still prompt me for the Optional Update (or vice-versa)? And if so, will it download again the part of the update that I'd already have from whichever I choose to do first?Thanks for the help!

I started to update my AVG free 7.5 update manager the other day when for some reason it froze. I closed it and tried again and it says its downloaded what it needs but to finish the update i need to restart my computer. After I had finished doing what i was doing i restarted my computer.

Heres the problem. Its still saying that i need to restart my computer to finish the update. Its been a few days now and it still wont finish the update. Ive tried selecting it again and re-doing the update but just says "update was unsuccessful".

Any suggestions? It says the next update due is tomorrow so should i wait for that and try again? I've also noticed, while trying to fix the problem myself, that under the settings tab for update manager there is an option to "delete update temporary files". Would this work? Im not too sure what this option does.

Thanks for any help.

I was wondering if anyone could help about this. I've had no luck on the ZoneAlarm forums. ZoneAlarm firewall will not update when I click on 'update' - I just get 'error'. This can be temporarily solved by clean installing, and I'll be able to update for a few days, but then I'll start getting the error message again.

As usual any help really appreciated.

I updated my free ZoneAlarm this morning after being prompted that it was available. When I tried to install it, it gave the following message:

Error

Could not load the DLL library
C:\DOCUME~1\Peg]LOCALS~1\Temp\vsutil.dll
(VSSetProtection). The specified procedure
could not be found.
I did a search and found it in C:\Windows\system32 folder.

I tried again to install and got a slightly different error msg.

Could not load the DLL library

(WSEDbgPrint). The specified procedure

Anyone have any suggestions as to what I should do now?

What is the best free program that can tell me which drivers aren't updated and where to update them, I am really bad at this.

A:Best FREE program or way to update all my drivers!

I use DriverPak solution, especially after a clean install. It scans your system drivers, and tells which ones need updating, then gives you the option to install them or, download them from the providers web site. The biggest downside is its a humongous download in the 2-3gb download. Best of all, it's free!

" DriverPack Solution is the most popular program that makes the job of finding and automatically installing drivers a pleasure.
DriverPack Solution simplifies the process of reinstalling Windows on any computer. No more problems with searching and installing drivers. Everything will be done in a couple of mouse clicks!"

I run AVG Free 8.5 on an XP computer with windows firewall.

Until recently automatic update worked perfectly, but now I get an error message "Update failed - the connection with update server has failed" or "Update failed, Access is forbidden by the server"

I have tried manual updates (through the program) but get the same results.

I have made sure that all the necessary files, as per the AVG website, are exceptions in the windows firewall.

I have requested assistance from the AVG Free forum, but have drawn a blank.

I can do a manual update, downloading the files from the AVG website and updating via the program going to "tools and "update from directory", but this is obviously cumbersome, although it keep my virus definition files up to date. No problem with scheduled scans..

I believe it must be malware that is preventing the update, but AVG don't seem in a hurry to fix it.

Other than this, I really like the workings of AVG, but am now at a loss as to how to proceed.

Any ideas?

I have (and am sticking with) AVG 7.5 A/V Free for as long as possible (hopefully the 12/31/08 date will hold!), but I noticed this update today:

AVG Free Banner (Version 493)

What is this? I'm assuming that it has something to do with either the "ad" for 8.0 that is part of the Control Center panel and/or a new popup ad that will start nagging even more. (I seem to remember an older version of this being part of a past update months ago.) Or maybe it's just an updated "ad" with the new date?

I didn't choose to update it yet, and now my systray icon is gray and it says that it's a Priority Update that is ready to be and should be updated. Hmmm...

Thoughts?

Thanks!

UPDATE: Well, whatever it is, it looks like you have to download/install it if you want to get the virus definitions, so I did so. No issues. Just was wondering what that was exactly...
