      Just read this on the AVG forum,

      Currently the update for AVG Free v8 is corrupted... you will have to wait for AVG Technologies to address the issue with the update.

      Reporting the issue again by other users here will not do any good util it is resolved.

      The updates that your AVG currently have will still provide the protection it is setup to detect. In otherwords, not being able to get this update will not make your AVG Free ineffective and as soon as AVG Tech resolves the issue you will be able to update to the current virus definitions at that time.

      So in short... please do not post to report the issue, its already known. Also please be patient until AVG Technologies can address the issue.

        There is a workaround on this - have just tried it on two computers and AVG is working well (after a couple of hours of panic!). See post #10 at AVG 8.0 .bin file missing? - PCMech Forums
        There is no absolute truth - and no final answer.

                Looks like it could be sorted now. I had the same warning earlier on, I switched off and have now turned back on and the warning has gone!

                      I'm sure Marion wont mind me passing this on but heres what to do
                      and it works YES


                      1) Go to the AVG website at the following URL: AVG Anti-Virus and Internet Security - Updates

                      2) Create a folder on your desktop and download the following files to the folder:
                      1) AVI: 270.6.4
                      2) IAVI: / 1616

                      3) Open the AVG control panel and click the "Tools" link. Select "Update from Directory," navigate to the desktop file that you created and placed the downloaded files into and select the file as the update source.

                      AVG should automatically load the update files and all of your notifications should go back to green. Hope this helps.

                                    I right clicked on the icon and told it to update now, and it did it OK.
