Hey all, I've noticed when AVG did its update today, a security centre alert came up saying my antivirus protection is off when infact it is on. I have tried reinstalling AVG but now the security centre is telling me my virus definitions are out of date (they are up to date).
Anyone else getting this problem and know how to fix it?

Thanks

Ok I have Avast now installed, no problem with the security centre now and I've noticed a performance increase of my laptop too which is good!
