WSUS and AVG 9

HI since installing AVG 9 server edition on Windows 2003 server we have been having problems with wsus which is installed on that server. The MMC snap in keeps 'not responding' and when you do get in you keep getting the error message 'reset server node'.

I have uninstalled AVG 9 and the problem has gone away, but I need to get AVG back onto the server (without it causing the server to play up - obviously).
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks

Not really. The only thing that seemed to work was not to install avg on that server. There also seems to be an issue with IIS servers loading documents on our web based document management system. AVG 9 for workstations is much better than 8.5 but they seem to of lost the plot when it comes to servers.

Not having virus protection on a server is a bit daft considering the main reason we use wsus is to patch vulnerabilities on machines that are exploited by VIRUS's.
