Hi I am trying to install AVG but it is saying it can't detect my internet connection but I'm clearly online. I just recently disabled some startup sevices and programs any idea if some box I unchecked is causing AVG and Adaware to not be able to detect my settings.
You should check that your personal software firewall isn't blocking the update process. If you can get to the internet through your normal browser then your internet is working, and the issue is likely a firewall blocking the update. I recommend disabling your firewall, trying it again.
If that solves the problem then add an exception to your firewall. (Remember that windows also has a firewall built in).
