Updating your AVG 8 to the latest program version

When updating your AVG to the latest program version, the update process may need to be started twice and the update may ask you to restart your computer. The full update procedure is the following:

  1. When you click "Update now" or the scheduled update is started, main part of the update is downloaded and applied.
  2. The Update Manager in your AVG will report that new update files are available. Your AVG will be fully functional at this point, but not fully updated yet.
  3. When the update process is started again, the update will be completed.
  4. A computer restart will be required, unless your operating system is Windows Vista. Please note that some AVG components will not work until you restart your computer.

After the restart, AVG will be fully functional and updated to the latest available program version. Please refer to FAQ 1432 for the list of changes in the latest AVG program update.

What to do when the AVG installation fails

If you are installing AVG and the installation process fails, there are several steps you can take to install AVG successfully.

1. Make sure you are installing AVG under an account with Administrative rights
This step is vital for correct and successful installation, since AVG needs to copy some of its files into folders, which are not accessible by an account with User permissions. For information on how to check whether you are logged into Windows as a user with administrative rights, please refer to this FAQ topic.

2. Always use the latest AVG installation file
AVG program is being improved continuously, including the installer which is responsible for correct installation process. Moreover, using the latest installation package eliminates the need to download larger program and virus base updates immediately after installation. To download the up-to-date installation file, please visit the Download section of our website, choose your product and click on "Download AVG now".

3. Close all running programs, disable security applications
Before running the installation file, please close all unnecessary running programs and make sure that there is no security application which might interfere with the installation process. Typical examples of programs preventing successful AVG installation are anti-spyware utilities and registry monitors/cleaners, which are preventing access to Windows registry. AVG needs to be installed also into registry to allow the functionality and protection it was designed to offer.

4.  Remove possible conflicting applications
If you are using an application which might be in conflict with AVG, please disable it or uninstall it completely before running the installation. In general, AVG may conflict with such application, that provides similar or same functionality as one of the AVG components. This is especially important for other programs with one or more of these features:

  • real-time protection against viruses (same as AVG Resident Shield)
  • monitoring or control of network traffic (same or similar to AVG Firewall)
  • checking or filtering of e-mails (same or similar to AVG E-mail Scanner)
  • checking of websites, web content filters (same or similar to AVG Web Shield)

5. Disable UAC (Windows Vista only)
On Windows Vista, the function User Account Control may in some cases create a copy of specific AVG files in a virtual folder. This limits AVG functionallity after the installation. The UAC function can be disabled in Windows Control Panel -> User accounts -> Turn User Account Control on or off -> uncheck "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer" -> click OK button and restart the computer.

In case the installation is still unsuccessful after these steps were taken, please do not hesitate to contact our Technical Support using the web form. To provide us with the most complete information and thus help us provide you with a solution in the shortest possible time, please attach the AVG installation log file to your request:

  • open Start -> Run or Search -> type "%tmp%" -> OK
  • find and attach the file "AVG8INST.LOG"

I think I have a virus on my computer. What steps should I follow to install AVG?

First, check your computer with the vcleaner.exe utility. This utility is able to clean/remove most known of viruses that are known to cause installation problems. It isn’t necessary to install this utility, just save it on your PC and run it.

You should check your computer this way:

  • download the vcleaner.exe utility
  • reboot your computer into the Safe mode  (if necessary)
  • double-click on the downloaded file to launch it
  • please wait until the test finishes and restart your computer


After checking your computer with vcleaner.exe, you can begin installing AVG. We strongly recommend installing AVG using the latest installation file, which can be found in the Downloads section of our website.


When the installation is complete, please update your AVG, to be sure that the latest virus definitions are in place.

AVG 8.0 - Legacy OS support

AVG 8.0 - Legacy OS support

Please be informed that older versions of Windows operating systems (Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows Me) are no longer supported. It is possible to install AVG 8.0 on the following OS's (and Service Packs):

For more details, please check the web page of the appropriate AVG product in the System requirements tab (for example AVG Internet Security).

Why don't we support older operating systems with AVG 8.0?

Unfortunately the new scanning engine and on-access scanner, as well as the whole AVG technology cannot work on the old systems. These systems do not provide features and functionality that are necessary for proper detection and especially removal of malware. The systems are insecure and have already not been maintained by the OS vendor for several years. Therefore we cannot guarantee sufficient protection.

Solution

We suggest that you upgrade your OS and/or install the latest Service Pack to be able to use all the AVG features. We also recommended that you use WindowsUpdate to keep your operating system up-to-date.

How often should I update AVG?

After you install AVG, the First Run Wizard asks you (among others) how often you wish to update your AVG. The available options are Every 4 hours, or Every day. Keeping your AVG up-to-date is crucial to ensure that all newly discovered viruses will be detected as soon as possible.

Since AVG updates are not released according to any fixed schedule but rather in reaction to amount and severity of new threats, it is recommended to check for new updates at least once a day. Checking every 4 hours will guarantee that your AVG Virus base is kept up-to-date also during the day.

For more information on how to set the AVG update schedule, please see FAQ 1234.

The connection with update server has failed.

If you try to update AVG and the error Update failed. Connection with update server has failed. is displayed, it can be caused by one of the following reasons:

Connection to AVG update servers is blocked
In case you are using any Firewall or Content filtering applicaiton, please make sure that it is not preventing AVG from connecting to Internet. If you are using Windows Firewall, AVG will allow itself automatically during the instalaltion, however this is not possible for all other Firewall or Content filtering solutions. You can temporarily disable any such program to verify whether it is affecting AVG, or add AVG files and servers to its exceptions. The list of files used by AVG, and servers to which is AVG connecting are available in FAQ topic 1216.

  • Open menu Start -> (Settings) -> Control Panel.
  • Double-click on Network connections.
  • Right-click on Local area connection and select Repair.
  • Try to update AVG.

  • Open menu Start -> (Settings) -> Control Panel.
  • Double-click on Network connections.
  • Right-click on the connection you are using and choose Properties.
  • Double-click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item on the General tab.
  • Please check (and modify if necessary) the settings of IP address and DNS servers according to your Internet Provider settings or choose the "Obtain DNS server address automatically" option.
  • Confirm the settings by clicking on the OK button.
  • Close the window.

What to do when I suspect any file it is infected?

Please try to update your AVG system and run the whole computer scan again. When the file is not detected and you are still in doubt, put the file into password protected archive (WinZip, WinRar, PowerArchiver etc.), attach this archive to an e-mail and send it to virus@avg.com. Describe why you send the file and write password for the archive into e-mail. And send the e-mail.

I have some files in the AVG Virus Vault. What next?

Most of today's viruses (Trojan horses, I-Worms, Worms, etc) create their own files which contain nothing but a body of the virus. In such cases the only way to remove the infection is to delete the infected file. When you moved the file to the AVG Virus Vault it was deleted from its original location, coded, and then saved in a non-executable file in a hidden folder. Your PC is no longer infected then.


If you are not missing any data file and your applications are running, then you can delete these vaulted files from the AVG Virus Vault program.

You can do it selectively from AVG Virus Vault program -> select files -> delete. Or you can delete all AVG Virus Vault contents in one go:

  •  Double-click the AVG icon on your desktop -> choose the "History" menu and select the "Virus Vault" option -> click on the "Empty Vault" button.

Warning in a test result

The AVG test may report a warning - potentially dangerous object on some files, which may be infected or pose a potentional threat. Typical examples of such detection are hidden files, cookies, suspicious registry keys, password protected documents or archives, etc.

Warning does refer to a file that cannot be scanned (password-protected archive), or to potentially suspicious files (hidden files, cookies, etc.). Such files do not present any direct threat to your computer or security. Information about these files is generally useful in case there is an adware or spyware detected on your computer. If there are only Warnings detected by an AVG test, no action is necessary.

This is a brief description of the most common examples of such objects:

  • Hidden files
    The hidden files are by default not visible in Windows, and some viruses or other threats may try to avoid their detection by storing their files with this attribute. If your AVG reports a hidden file which you suspect to be malicious, you can move it to your AVG Virus Vault and send it to us for analysis.
  • Cookies
    Cookies are plain-text files which are used by websites to store user-specific information, which is later used for loading custom website layout, pre-filling user name, etc. More information is available in the FAQ dedicated to this detection.
  • Suspicious registry keys
    Some malware stores its information into Windows registry, to ensure it is loaded on startup or to extend its effect on the operating system.
  • Password protected documents or archives
    Password protected files can not be scanned by AVG (or an Anti-Malware program in general), as explained in this FAQ topic.

If you wish, you can adjust the AVG test settings in such way, that only the warnings you are interested in are reported:

  • open AVG User Interface
  • click on Computer scanner
  • click "Change scan settings"
  • alternativelly, you can change these settings in menu Tools - Advanced settings

these platforms will be supported by AVG 7.5 only till the end of the year 2008 but AVG Technologies reserves the right to discontinue the support provided that AVG Technologies informs thereof 15 days prior to the effective date on its website.

 

Firewall Configuration Wizard

Firewall Configuration Wizard launches automatically right after the AVG 8.0 Anti-Virus plus Firewall or AVG 8.0 Internet Security installation. Though you can configure the component’s parameters later on, it is recommended that you take the wizard’s tour to ensure the Firewall works properly.

Note: Firewall Configuration Wizard can also be called directly from the Firewall interface by pressing the Configuration wizard button.

Step 1)
In first dialog, the Firewall Configuration Wizard asks how your computer is connected to the Internet. For instance, your notebook, that connects to the Internet from many different locations (airports, hotel rooms, etc.) requires security rules that are stricter than those of a computer in a domain (company network, etc.). Based on the selected connection type the Firewall default rules will be defined with a different security level.

You have four options to select from:

  • Standalone computer
  • Computer in domain (company network)
  • Computer on the move (typically a notebook)
  • Small home or office network


 

In this dialog please choose the connection type(s), that suit your normal computer usage. You can tick more than one choice that corresponds to your current usage.
Confirm your selection by pressing the Next button and proceed to the next dialog.

Step 2)
To set the initial Firewall configuration it is necessary to scan your computer and define all applications and system services that need to communicate over the network. Initial Firewall rules should be created for all those applications and services.

Note: The wizard detects all generally known applications communicating over the network, and defines rules for these applications. However, it will not detect all such applications.

Within the Scan for Internet applications dialog you have to decide whether you want to run:

  • Quick search - text this option is only active if you have configured the Firewall previously, and only applications that are currently saved within the existing Firewall configuration will be searched for.
  • Complete scan - scan all local hard drives of your computer
  • Common directories - (by default) scan program and Windows directories only, scanning time is significantly shorter
  • Selected areas scan - specify selected hard drives to be scanned


 

Step 3)
The Select current profile dialog informs you about the Firewall configuration set up in the previous dialogs.
Before closing the Firewall Configuration Wizard it is necessary that you select a profile you want to use on your computer. You can choose from up to four options (standalone computer, computer in domain, computer on the move and small home or office network) based on the connection parameters you have specified in the first dialog (Network Connection Options) of this wizard. You can then later on switch between the pre-defined Firewall profiles according to the current state of your computer.

Step 4)
The Configuration Review dialog closes the Firewall Configuration Wizard. Press the Finish button to finalize the Firewall's initial settings. If you would like to see a review of set up parameters, or to continue with the detailed configuration of the Firewall component press the Open review button to switch to the Firewall Settings editing interface. (recommanded only for experienced users)

AVG Firewall confirmation dialog

The AVG Firewall confirmation dialog is displayed when you need to decide whether you wish to allow or block network communication for certain application. The dialog is displayed because this application does not have defined rule that would specify an appropriate action.

The dialog has the following options:

  • Allow for all - the communication for this application will be allowed for all networks (the whole Internet)
  • Allow for safe - the communication will be allowed only for networks and/or adapters, which are marked as safe (Tools -> Firewall configuration -> profile name -> Defined adapters (networks)
  • Block - the communication is blocked, which may restrict the application's functionality, or disable it altogether
  • Save my answer as a permanent rule, and do not ask me next time - AVG Firewall saves the selected action for the application into its configuration
  • Show details - displays information about the communication that induced the Firewall dialog
