Avg having trouble updating
This program is an albatross that needs somewhere to land.
The only way you can get other programs to work is to disable the fire wall, and you can't use another fire wall, because AVG disables them so they can't be used.
You can't get in contact with customer service or tech support because all of the numbers have been disconnected.
The only one that works is some paid tech support in India. you pay for a product and when it does not work you have to pay someone to fix it.
Their service is so poor, that they don't want to hear all the complaints. I am a DOD Cyber Defense Analyst and bought AVG to kind of test it out not only for myself at home but for work. Then after reinstalling the software 3 to 4 times because it kept telling me I did not have the paid version but I download for the site it says I am good.
The interface is good but clunky and the one overall thing I liked was the privacy monitor which worked as advertised.
Overall I would not recommend this to anyone because of the support and the clunkiness of it.
When I go to the update manager it says bin file is missing, you are not protected.
