Update AVG8 Free Failed! and the fix.

When I’m trying to update my antivirus yesterday, AVG8 Free, I got an error message right after AVG8  update download finished. It say: there is missing .bin files! I try to update again and still got the error. I think this is from the server. Today I try to update it again and still no fix.

Then I try to search the error cause and maybe some fix. I got it! There is 2 way, both are from yahoo answer:

1) go to http://www.grisoft.com/ww.download-update
2) make a directory on your desktop called AVG
3) download AVI: 270.6.4
4) download IAVI: / 1616
5) move the downloaded files to the directory you made called AVG
6) launch AVG
7) select tools -> update from directory
8) select the directory called AVG where you put the downloads


1. Open AVG user interface
2. Select tools > update from directory
3. Navigate to the original install directory (typically c:/program files/AVG/AVG8) and hit OK

I’ve tried the second one (because my net is slow…), and the error is gone!
