    Then try this:

    Navigate to your AVG install directory and rename your existing url.ini file to url.ini.old

    Copy the following and paste into notepad and save it as url.ini . Put this new file into your AVG install directory. You'll now have 3 options to select from with www.grisoft.com being the default.

    [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

    I haven't made the changes yet as mine still updates but it is very slow in doing so. This is my original url.ini file.

    Open the AVG Control Centre & check the tab 'Resident Shield'. See if the top 3 boxes are ticked.

    Nice tip, thanks. I just copied what you wrote, then pasted it into url.ini over the previous info. Worked great. Thanks again.
