Hi! This is my first post, and despite I live in Argentina. I couldn't find info about this issue in my language so I continued the search in other ones.
The problem is that AVG has detected that I'm using a cracked version of the program and doesn't let me update the virus definitions, so I'm unprotected . Here I is a screenshot of the message that the program displays:

Dont use cracked version or actually pay for a legal copy?
Piracy is illegal and is stealing. Im sure you would not like people stealing from you.

Simple, either download the free version like myself and many other people, or just buy it!

Ok, I have manually deleted the some reg entries about the AVG, and now the annoying message doesn't appears, but it still do't update the virus definitions. What do you think I should do?

Try another antivirus. I would never trust AVG with any systems.

Avast Antivirus - www.avast.com - Avast is a great antivirus, doesn't hog up memory, and scans pretty fast. Skinnable as well.

ETrust Antivirus Trial - http://www.my-etrust.com/microsoft/ - Trotter recommends this one. I haven't tried it before, but i'm sure it's much better than AVG or Norton, the gruesome twosome.
