AVG – Cannot Launch AVG Internet Update



Last week sometime I was doing maintenance on an OLD Windows 95 machine (yes there are some still out there….) and noticed the Antivirus had not updated in a good while. They were using Grisoft’s AVG and so I tried to force an update. I was greeted with an error message… “Cannot Launch AV internet update” Which was puzzling since we were online with no connectivity problems. On looking, this is known to be an issue with Grisoft AVG on Windows 95…..


Essentially, I had to reinstall the DUN 1.3 update AND also the ws2update (winsock 2 update)

After that, I ran the update and it worked just fine. (There may have been a reboot needed first.)

Another suggestion I found on the AVG forums was to re-download the installer for AVG and reinstall. That did not solve the problem in this situation, but it might in yours….

Why Windows 95 still? Frankly, the system had been “decommissioned” and after a year of collecting dust as a “just in case” spare… someone pushed it into light use. Fortunately Grisoft’s AVG works sufficiently well on it.
