Just wondering, has anyone come up with a way to get the auto-update to actually run? Using task scheduler or something.

I never had a problem by scheduling it within AVG. It is in the Update Manager tab.

Ditto here too Chris, mine checks for updates at 7.46 am each morning if the comp is on at that time as it usually is. Why 7.46am I cant remember, I just leave it at that.

Thats the problem. It only runs if the computer is running at the specified time (7:30pm), on the specific day.

In the two years I've been running AVG it would seem I've never met both conditions.

I was hoping someone had found a more reliable way to schedule updates.

Well Ive set my scheduler to update if the data base is older than 2 days, and to repeat in 1 day. That gives a pretty frequent schedule, and the time in the morning is usually just after when I fire up and check email and things whilst my porridge is cooling down :)

You could get your computer to wake up at the appropriate time, since you, unlike Terry, haven't got punctual porridge.

But 7.30 pm would be a late breakfast. :D

I manually download the updated virus defs for AVG as
I only use this AV as a backup app,but like to keep it up to date!

I always know when Grisoft is updating as I have a little app that
notifies me when Grisoft makes a change on their Web-page!

I am currently using the AV app"AVAST4.0" (Awil Trade)which
can only be updated manually,with the client notifying it's users
as updates are released.Usually every 2/3 days!

I usually alert PressF1 users when updates are available from Grisoft
as they can be a little irregular .(unlike Nortons,who update their files
every Wednesday!)
