When trying update AVG, it shows I have this 2.1 MB update to download.
I have since come to realize that this is in use because it holds the scan data for the drive from the working AVG instance from another leg of my dual boot.
Thanks for helping, Dan Hello There seems to be some user account issues on your computer.
I accept, but then I get a "Update failed- General Error" message. Here are the log files: Hello Zuler C,analysis of the provided update log files revealed that a AVG registry entry has been damaged which is preventing AVG update to be installed.
Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)Virus DB: 1435/3500I just use the Windows firewall. This situation is different than the one described in this thread originally even though the "general error" is reported in both cases.
If the problem still persists, uninstall AVG, run the removal tool and re-install again.
