I installed AVG 8.0 on my two PCs (Windows XP Home SP3). The installation process is complete on both machines, but on one of them I can't update the program. Can you help?

Reboot your PC, then go to and re-install, right over. And try your updates again. If again they are not installing, no panic, try again. The updates I mean. And keep re-trying, they will eventually download. I had a similar problem, in fact THAT particular download is a patch to correct that problem, lol. So e patient and persistent and it will eventually work.

In order to fix the issues, try to temporarily disable Windows Firewall. After that, update the program. If you can't, I suggest you update AVG manually using the package from the official web page. Click the green Free Download button, save the file to your computer and install it following the on-screen steps.
