I'm trying to update my AVG but it keeps failing and displaying 'General Error'. I'm running AVG 10.0.1204, Virus DB version: 1435/3463 on Windows Vista SP2. Hello pcwiz11, Please provide us with all needed information including update log file. When I try updating it simply Displays 'Update Failed.
I am posting this so it is out there somewhere, even tho I have already resolved the issue on my own. Startup Repair ran System Restore and then the PC booted.
Power outage last night, and my Windows 7 Home Pre HP 64-bit PC would not boot. (I didn't realize it at the time, but System Restore rolled back the upgrade from AVG 2014 Free to AVG 2015 Free, which had been installed, but not rebooted to complete the installation).
