Avg stops updating

Disabling AVG definition and program update scheduled tasks 1.

Open AVG user interface, click Options Schedules, select’ Definition Update Schedule’ and uncheck ‘Enable this task’, click ‘OK’.

If AVG detects a virus infection in a file during a download, it will keep the file off your computer.

If a file is infected, AVG recommends updating the AVG program and running a full system scan.

For example, if you're running "AVG2013," delete folders with names like "AVG2012" and "AVG9." Restart the computer to restore proper AVG functionality.

If you're positive the file you're trying to down is not infected and AVG keeps blocking it, you can add the file type to the File Exclusions list or temporarily disable AVG to bypass the download block.

To add a file exclusion, open AVG settings, click "Expert Settings" under "Computer Protection" and "Antivirus," remove the file extension from the list and click "Apply." AVG can be disabled by right-clicking on the AVG icon from the taskbar and selecting "Temporarily disable AVG protection."
