AVG Safe Search 10.0.0.1390 is my security system. Why should I let you disable it?

AVG Safe Search will be re-enabled as soon as AVG tests it with Firefox 6 and marks it compatible. You can also re-enable it yourself by installing the Add-on Compatibility Reporter. For instructions, see this page: Re-enable add-ons that were disabled when updating Firefox

Firefox has its own safe browsing feature that provides the same protection as AVG Safe Search, and it will still use AVG to scan files for viruses, so you will still be protected even if the Safe Search add-on is disabled. (In fact, Firefox will probably be faster with the add-on disabled.) For details about Firefox's built-in safe browsing, see this page.

AVG protects me with Internet Explorer plus provides protection on our internal network. If I disable it for the benefit of Fire Fox, have I then left myself exposedunder the other programs?

Try Checking Update for AVG from the System Tray icon, see the Attached Screenshot. Check and tell if its working.

I think ,SafeBrowser, that your answer is ok, but I go to the place and there is a list of different nine program updates. What do I install? I have a 32-bit system. Thank you.

Can you Copy/Paste the list of different nine program updates here ?? We might be able to tell you which updates you should install.

Check and tell if its working.

This is my first visit to this place and I want to apologize with wcrnl. Perhaps I have been a nuisance. This was his or her problem, but I have exactly the same one. That is the reason why I did not ask the same question again. I will try not to interrupt in the future.

mha007 , thank you, but the problem is I do not know how to do it. Do I update all the programs one by one, or only the first one where perhaps all of them are included ? (it is perhaps like a title or something similar): Program Update AVG Internet Security 2011.1392 Hotfix 10.

I cannot see any indication where it is said that these updates are for AVG free version. Perhaps I must write AVG a message. Thank you.

xenaxana Did you try right-click AVG icon and select Update Now ??

That is the most appropriate method of Updating AVG since we don't when was the last time you updated your AVG or which definitions have already been updated.

But if you are unable to use the right-click AVG icon and select Update Now method, Download all the updates (in a New Folder) mentioned in this link:

When all downloads are complete, Download the AVG Antivirus 2011 Manual

and use Update AVG from Folder feature to Install AVG Updates from a folder that contains AVG Updates files.

Check and tell if its working.


CLOSE ALL WEB BROWSERS BEFORE INSTALLING THE AVG UPDATES

mha 007 , I clicked that AVG icon but it is useless. In fact, I have clicked it several times every day since I have this problem. "Important notice for AVG Free Users: The listed program updates should NOT be used for the AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition". Those phrases are written where you have sent me. And my edition of AVG is the free one. So, I do not understand that warning on the page. Why does the page say that?

Thank you again.

I just chatted with AVG Tech Help. They have confirmed that AVG Safe Search is still NOT compatible with Firefox 6 yet, only the AVG Toolbar is.

They are working on it right now and will release the next update once it is done.

Thank you very much, silkphoenix. I suspected that, but I was not sure, because I have some friends with the same problem and they have not been able to solve it. The problem is caused by AVG in this case. I appreciate your help.

You are welcome. And I am sure AVG will have an update very soon as they are pretty good at that.

mha007 , I appreciate your help too. You have been very nice, but as you can see, it is useless to update AVG in this case.
