Why will my antivirus software not update?

January 2, 2011 at 15:15:16
Specs: Windows Vista
Windows (vista) security centre had alerted me that my anti-virus software is out of date ( even though I updated to the AVG free 2011 only 3 days ago) When I open AVG, both Anti-virus and Anti-Spyware say ' database is outdated'. However, it will not perform any updates.
I tried to install a new anti-virus programme ( avast), but the same thing happened.

Why will my computer not accept any anti-virus software? How do I solve this?

you can solve it by using the uninstallers from the respective websites. Norton & McAfee are the worst to remove.
Any left over registry entries from those will stop any other anti-virus from functioning properly.
