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.
