AVG missing file

Have returned to PC's after a short break, to find my AVG 8 (free) has a missing .bin file, and won't update (no other details available) anybody else experienced this, and know of a fix?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Ah! thanks pierre, still waiting for a fix from AVG obviously.

Re: AVG missing file

Gel posted this on another thread which answers the problem:
From AVG Forum
Currently the update for AVG Free v8 is corrupted... you will have to wait for AVG Technologies to address the issue with the update.
Reporting the issue again by other users here will not do any good util it is resolved.
The updates that your AVG currently have will still provide the protection it is setup to detect. In otherwords, not being able to get this update will not make your AVG Free ineffective and as soon as AVG Tech resolves the issue you will be able to update to the current virus definitions at that time.
So in short... please do not post to report the issue, its already known. Also please be patient until AVG Technologies can address the issue.
