    bin file missing (XP SP3)

    When attempting to update my free AVG program an error message pops up saying that "a .bin file is missing". Of course, no clue as to WHAT bin file is missing. Any suggestions as to how to get the missing bin file? I aleady tried downloading and reinstalling AVG, but get the same error.

    Does the error message give the name of the .bin file?

    Hi Chuck

    The news groups are awash with people reporting this error. From the feel of the messages it appears that it is an AVG issue with a faulty update. I suggest you sit back and wait for the hotfix to be implemented by AVG.

    I agree with Jerry, I have seen and received many lists mailings about this. I would wait a day or two and see if AVG gets things fixed.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Hi guys,

    Sounds like a good idea to wait. I really think it's up to AVG to solve the problem or, as a minimum, state what .bin file is missing.

    I've just run the update again and it now seems to be OK.

    Thanks for the alert, and you're right -- the download worked. I noticed during the download that it was processing several .bin files. Obviously they included all necessary ones this time.
