To get regedit to run, I had to go to the C:\Windows folder and rename to
I then double-clicked and the registry editor opens.
My signatures are stuck at 4/30/09, and I assume newer ones have been released by now? (I think it's the full DB file) Save it to the desktop, then from AVG choose Update - update from location of something like that, then browse to the file on the desktop, AVG will then find and install the update.

Are you saying I should download the "IAVI: / 2096" file as shown in my prior post?? What does that ICON on the left, under the OS column, that looks like a stack of books mean??
FYI to all: I did some detective work on the AVG Free forum and found what my problem was and how to correct it...

Windows Update sometimes doesn’t work, and you get an error message like the one below.Open AVG user interface, click Options Schedules, select’ Definition Update Schedule’ and uncheck ‘Enable this task’, click ‘OK’.READ: AVG Browser Configuration Tool Removes AVG Secure Search, AVG Toolbar and Restores Browser default Settings2.While you’re expanded Schedules on left, select ‘Program Update Schedule’ and untick ‘Enable this task’, click ‘OK’ to apply the changes. Select ‘Update’ and set ‘Manual Update’ for Virus Definitions and Program Settings.Note: AVG warn you when you disable database updates in its program window with ‘You are not fully protected Update Manager: Database Update is disabled.’ clicking ‘Fix Now’ will re-enable the definition update schedule task but not the program update schedule task. 2017 Update: If you’re using AVG 2017 or later (uses Avast technologies)1.
