Windows 7: AVG Antivirus Problems

AVG Antivirus Problems

I'm in China working right now and I desperately need a VPN to access my FB account and other western sites. AVG just updated it's antivirus program to AVG 2011. Now my VPN's no longer have access to the internet.

Does anyone have enough information about AVG 2011 Antivirus to know how to fix this. I Google searched it and saw a link with AVG 2011 Business causing similar problems but I was unable to access the page because of the letters VPN in the URL.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

New Problem

I've installed a wireless router and the vpn's won't work because the IP's are no longer Chinese IP's?

Any ideas?

The VPN's still work on my laptop, just not on the desktop hooked up to the wireless router.
