Hello,

I have WinXP SP3 32bit and AVG2011 installed. I never had problems since today. AVG wanted to update but at the last step (finishing update), I get an error message "Update Failed, Invalid Binary Update file" and updating stops. I was looking for a solution and read some posts in this forum, but all I tried, nothing worked, neither deleting temporary update files, nor a reinstall.

AVG User Interface says that I'm fully protected and all functions are up to date, but it can't be right because when I want to update manually, there is one file and download and installation of this file works perfectly, but because of "Invalid Binary Update File", it can't be finished.

Unfortunately I don't know how to make log files of the failed update.

I hope somebody can help me!
Thanks in advance! :smile:

I'm having the same problem where would I find the Root Certificates that was mentioned in the previous reply?!?!? Sorry I'm a bit clueless when it comes to computers.

Thanks

I'm having the same problem too. Please be more specific about the Root Certificates. I'm not familiar with this update either.
