However my Update Manger says i am up to date and manually doing the download into the Update folder doesn't work either!!!

Found out why. Website say 489 is out but website still holding 488 update...

If you have set AVG to update automatically, it's quite likely that the update has already been installed so that trying to install it again gives the 'Up to date' message.
My own setup is for an update every day, sometimes I see it update, but very often I don't, I do not worry over it as I know it's up to date.

No i always to it manually.

Also the update announcement only went up 5 min's ago...

Anyway what does would that have to do with the fact that the latest update on the site is 488 when the website says 489 is avalible?? Pretty amazing if AVG can update from an update thats not even on their website!!! ;-)

Still cant update by clicking on the update manager. Its worrying that the download server is now free.grisoft.cz is this signs of things to come

If you navigate your way to click here there is a drop down for selection of the AVG version you wish to update.

Selecting AVG 6.0 Free Edition takes you to a page that states the Version Number is 488. However if you select AVG 6.0 Professional/Trial that takes you to a page stating that the Version Number is 489. Seems Grisoft have got into a bit of a muddle - unless they only intend the update to be applied to the Professional and not the Free version!

Have now updated ok to 489 288. BarryKeith if you are not running this version then you are not up to date.

All sorted. The free version will be supported until at least the end of the year according to Grisoft. After that who knows as AVG 7 comes out soon.

Some confusion here. The Program Version is 6.0.489, the Virus Database is 288. The latter is the update.

I know. I went here a while back. If you look on the webiste it calls it Update 489.

I did e-mail Grisoft about this but they never answered...

I normally just refer to the Update number... even though i know it doesn really relate to the database / prgram version numbers!!!
