Avg Anti-virus Free Edition Question?

Postby Gussie » Sun Oct 08, 2017 10:36 am

AVG on my wife's computer for some reason is out of data. I try scanning the whole computer and clicking update but for some reason it still says that the anti-virus is out of data. I click the fix button and got this weird message:

Your computer system time seems to be inaccurate. This may lead to a false virus database up-to-dateness reporting. Please correct your system time if possible.

What can i do to solve this issue ?

Avg Anti-virus Free Edition Question?

Is the clock on your Taskbar really out of sync with your local time? If it is, click on it and select Change date and time settings > Internet Time > Change settings > Update now. Keep click on Update until it says synchronization is successful.

Afterwards, see if your crappy AVG anti-virus will now update its virus definitions.

PS: I said crappy AVG because Avast is a lot better in terms of detection rate, false positives and scanning speed. Read this so you will know the facts: http://www.av-comparatives.org/images/st...

By the way, Avast came up with a major version release today. There have been lots of new features and improvements. You might want to try it out. Register it with your email and you'll be given a 1-year free subscription of updates.

If you download it on there a lot of times you only get 30 days trial and then you have to pay for it unless you bought it and might have protection longer then 30 days. I suggest getting some other antivirus on your computer asap but delete off AVG before installing another antivirus on there.
