AVG Free antivirus app: where on my PC is the AVG database file kept?

Last Modified: 2013-11-22
Hi all,

I have been using AVG Free edition on two PCs: my desktop and my laptop. Now, on the desktop there seems to be a virus preventing it from  working with my cable  modem , whereas the laptop still works with the modem. I have now updated the laptop's AVG database, but I have reason to believe that the desktop's AVG was not updated, and I ignored it (for too long...).

1. So a quick fix would be to copy my laptop's AVG database to my desktop and update from that. Where is it located?

2. I am having problem's registering with AVG to get access to  its forum. I am not receiving its confirmation email that I am supposed to get in order to complete the registration. It is not getting sent to my Spam folder. Any advice on this? I as thinking of buying one of their products, but there is not much point if I can't get full access.
