Default AVG Free update crashing PC

Is anyone else using AVG Free, having a problem updating to the latest release?
I've had it twice now after a pop up telling me one is available for download.

The first time, it got half way through installation and froze up the PC.
Had it again today and it did the same thing. Had to reset it, since it wasn't doing anything at all for around an hour.

So, I'll have to say no to updating it next time it comes up :S

Do you have any processes running in the background while you're updating and have you tried in Safe Mode? I updated Comodo and it didn't like a program I had running which caused the same behavior as you're describing.

Not as far as I know. Shut everything off except for that and went downstairs whilst it completed. It never did.

I'll try safe mode
