It has been a month or more since I used my Dell XPS laptop. All I have available is dial-up internet access, so I have to wait until I go to the library to use WiFi. I'm writing this on an XP desktop.

Last month when I went to the library and got online, I got a message that my AVG Free needed to be updated. I clicked the appropriate place and the update began. After 45 minutes it was still updating, but it was time for the library to close, so I had to quit the update.

A few days ago I went to the library and began the update again. This time, after almost an hour, the update had not finished and again it was closing time, so I had to quit. Tried again yesterday with the same results.

How long should it take to update the AVG free virus definitions?

✔ Best Answer
Seems very long even if you've not used it for a while.

Try downloading the file and "Saving" it instead:

In the normal way it would take longer because normal updates only add to the data base but this is "the whole database". Just the same I think it could work out faster as it doesn't include the install. AVG might then update normally next time.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
