Everybody needs antivirus protection. And I don't mean the antivirus built into Windows—it just doesn't measure up.Fortunately, you can get that protection without spending a penny.AVG appears to be in a transition phase away from Anti Virus Free to Protection Free, as the latter is advertised on AVG's main website while the former is only available through back channels.AVG Antivirus Free is provided as a web installer by default, but you can grab offline installers that weight in at around 200 Megabyte as well which don't require an Internet connection during installation.When the offline update is complete, AVG will show a confirmation, as shown below.

Was this a threat or was firefox trying to update again??

I have yet to test this option, but it looks like it should do the trick for you.
