Avg 8 0 not updating
I haven't been able to update my free AVG Anti-Spyware due to similar things like "Error: Failed to send receive data: 0".
It has been like this since 12/3/07, with no updates.
same thing here 6 diferent systems on three diferent networks all having the same issues one network has 10 systems on it and 3 of them will not update except for offline updates.
I also found on the "wildersecurity" forums that AVG Anti-Spyware may be "neglected" because a new AVG8 suite is coming out, with everything. Mine is updating fine, but you might try uninstalling it and then downloading it again and then reinstall it and see if you can update it then.
David I think you may be talking about the AVG free anti virus whereas xbrianx is talking about AVG anti spyware.
And perhaps uninstall AVG and install something else.
If you're running Vista or Windows 7, I've found Microsoft Security Essentials to be perfectly adequate.
