My avg 8 0 is not updating

10 Apr

I want to install AVG 2012 antivirus on my Ubuntu 12.10, when I install it with Gdebi it gets installed without any problem, but when I try to start avg antivirus form terminal by typing following commond: I thinks so you have to install ia32-libs package.

Full steps are as follows: This works for both 32 and 64 bit versions of Ubuntu 10.10 and above.

Know that you will most likely never even encounter most of these so-called threats, reality is that a computer can do just fine without any antivirus installed in the system unless you are some sleazy pervert who likes to surf a lot of adult streaming websites or risky websites to download cracks, patches, sql injections for hacking and what not.

All these high percentage malware and virus detection rate is a marketing gimmick to sell the software.

Microsoft has urged non-tech-savvy people – or anyone who just wants a stable computer – to not download and install this year's biggest revision to Windows by hand. It's been two weeks since Microsoft made its Creators Update available, and we were previously warned it will be a trickle-out rather than a massive rollout.

Now, Redmond has urged users to stop manually fetching and installing the code, and instead wait for it to be automatically offered to your computer when it's ready.

Like a human virus, a virus makes the infected computer “sick”: it causes poor performance, crashes, lost files and data, or more.

However, the operating system can still be fetched manually if folks really want it.

In other words, if people fetch and install the software by hand, they will bypass Redmond's blockades, and potentially run aground on their hardware.
