To unregister a device device go to AVG for Android >> Anti-Theft >> Menu (Options) >> Un-register and then register your device again.
AVG needs to be updated
Some of you may receive a pop-up that saying that AVG needs to be updated.
This pop-up is legitimate and relates to the latest AVG 2013 Service Pack 1 update. It may be also displayed to those who are still using previous versions of AVG. We highlight recommend installing this update. However, if you did not receive this popup and would like to update to the latest version of AVG, you can simply download the latest installation file and run Repair installation to get it installed.
Windows 8.1 compatibility
The Windows 8.1 Preview version was released few days ago and we are pleased to announce that AVG 2013 is compatible with Windows 8.1. However you may receive the Program Compatibility Assistant warning in rare cases.
We are still investigating cause of this issue. However it is possible to download and install beta version of AVG 2014 temporarily if you face this issue.
