    Do you have any firewalls running?

    If not their servers might be too busy try updating Ad-aware later.

    I've used several and had to help friends solve problems with a few, so here's my feedback.
    Norton is the worst by far. Uses too much resource and can often block computer functions till "fixed."
    AVG free is quite good but the new AVG 8, (paid version) has problems.It's bigger and much more complicated.
    Customer support is good but slow to reply and no chat possible.
    I am currently testing NOD32 and Bit Defender AV, and Trend Micro.
    The problems with most are with the firewall. If you have/use a home or office network, watch out. AVG failed to set up easily with a network. There own staff had trouble sorting it out. Never did.
    I prefer that AV programs do just that and not include a firewall. I have one on my modem/router and in Windows. They have yet to fail me.
