Free Grisoft Antivirus Updating Fix
Seems that 7.0 Free version updates from different server than Pro version. Since most users run free version, related server seems overloaded. Try following countermeasure:
Edit the 'hosts'-file on individual PC's and add the 'guru' line below the 'localhost'-line as follows
C:\WINDOWS\hosts (Open with notepad & append 188.8.131.52 guru.grisoft.com below line '127.0.0.1 localhost')
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts (Open with notepad & append 184.108.40.206 guru.grisoft.com below '127.0.0.1 localhost')
Regardless the free version initially tries to update from the free-server, it will now point to the Pro updateServer.
Both free as pro 7.0 versions do use the same update definitions.
Hope this helps some of you. I was having updating issues on my wife's PC. This fixed that. Now it updates quickly whereas before it kept timing out.
