I have just updated my AVG to the 2012 version. Update went fine with the exception of the LinkScanner. It says that its database is outdated. I have checked that the time and date on my laptop are up to date. I have also restarted my laptop but warning still persists. :confused:

I'm using
Samsung NC10
Windows XP
Google Chrome (if this helps)

Thanks for any help in advance.

@ lh2686

What LinkScanner version is actually showing on your AVG User Interface? The latest version is currently 835.

Thanks for the reply.

I am unsure of what version I am currently running. Can suggest how I can find this information out?

All I am aware of currently is that I am running the AVG Anti Virus 2012 and the initial update to 2012 was carried out today (7.1.2012)

Thanks

Bring up your AVG User Interface -> Support -> Version.
