    I just tried to update by AVG and the Update Manager said that a new version was ready. When I clicked on the button it said: "New update ready{Level: Recommended upgrade}. Next update scheduled on 12/12/2004 9:24AM from www.grisoft.cz."

    I guess since I have virus updates scheduled, it also schedules version updates. It must be trying to schedule uploads to keep the servers from being too busy. Since it's free, I'll wait for the scheduled upload.

    I have this problem also.

    My update this morning did not update to the new build, just the latest virus base. I had to update to the new build manually. I ocassionally have the problem which states that the email scanner is not running, even though it is. I guess it's time to upgrade to the professional version.
