Is it the latest version of AVG?
I had this error when I tried AVG out, and in the end ditched it.~ Never, ever, argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience ~

It is indeed strange. I have used Grisoft's AVG for years and now use the latest version, AVG8. I have never had any problem with it. AV of any kind should not stop you connecting, only firewalls will do this. Are you using the AVG combined AV, Spyware and Firewall? If so you will have to allow access in the firewall settings. I am not familiar with the AVG firewall settings but there will be a section where you can enter trusted programs. This would normally be done when you set the program up.

Note - When downloading always select the Custom install or you will end up with stuff you don't want.

there has been an issue with some XP/Vista installs where a Windows update send the AV software into a mental and blocks all access...usually uninstalling the AV and reinstalling fixes it...
has so far affected (from my experience)...

To be honest, I've never found AVG any good at protecting a PC. I would (and do) pay for a decent AV package, and one that doesn't hog the resorses of a PC . I'm currently using Kaspersky, and prior to that used Nod32, both of which are excellent packages.
Like most things we all have different opinions, and this is just my 2p worthCheers
