    Ive been using Avg anti-virus free edition for over a year with xp and it works great. So i also wanted to use it With vista premium. The problem i found is that it works great under Vista for a few days and then it just all of a sudden refuses to update. The program will give me a message that it's definitions are out of date and i manually check for updates and nothing happens. i can see the updater process running in task manager. but it does nothing. i've uninstalled and reinstalled and same thing. A couple days maybe a week and it just stops updating.



    Any one ever heard of a problem like this.

    I have been using AVG on XP for years, but when I got Vista up and running I install the free edition of AVAST and it is working just great. Maybe you should switch.
