I am running AVG Internet Security 9.0.917 on Windows XP Pro. I am running a "small home or office network". I have paid for a license for 3 computers which expires in January.
Starting about a month ago - about once a week I have been getting a message about a Firewall failure. I reconfigure the Firewall and then have to OK the various programs that access the internet. Annoying, but it seems to have worked OK.
Yesterday there wasn't a Firewall problem, but AVG developed a new problem. I now have a "Database is outdated" message on the Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware components. Update now tells me "Update completed successfully." And, I need to restart my computer.
I have restarted the computer multiple times - a couple of times via Restart and several more times with a total shutdown of the system.
Please upload the "avgupd.log" and "avgupdm.log" files in an archive to the forum or some online storage for brief analysis as described in this how-to article plus please also provide us with the MSinfo output....

It still seems fixed - no dropped firewall since my last message.
FWIW - I don't consider posting to a forum support to paying customers. You used to have excellant email support for AVG. I tried to get the phone system to work with no success and the chat had a wait of 30-40 peole. I don't consider that support, so I'll take that into consideration in January when my license is up for renewal.
Updating AVG to a newest version is highly recommended. Firewall component had been improved in 2012 version therefore it will not only solve the issue you are experiencing but also improve your security. You do not need to pay extra money when you are updating to a newer version, because you already own license.
