I downloaded your free of AVG Anti-spyware 7.5. My trial period is over and I am testing this software to see if I should purchase it. Before I lauch to purchase any software I do some research on the product. I have been updating it manually, and for the past month or so, I have had trouble downloading the updates, "Error: server not ready........... " sometime it takes as little as 3-4 times before they get downloaded and recently I have not been able to get any udpates. I have tried at different times of the day and been unsuccessuful. I thought that because it is a free version, that was the problem, but as I see from your Thread, it seems that even the ones that have purchased the product are having trouble with the automatic updates. I believe this prouct is an excellent one, but if you cannot get updates or have to spend time manually updating and choosing a different time of the day to update how good could that be. It is a poor representation of the product. Until I see some sort of improvements, I will not purchase this product. I will continue to struggle with the manual updates and hopefully the problem will be solved for many of us.
