This option is available in the tray context menu of AVG and ensures that the security software compares scan results to an up-to-date signature database, so as to detect both known and recent threats.
Performing the updates from within the AVG Antivirus has an additional advantage: the antivirus recognizes signatures already included in its database and performs differential downloads and updates, which obviously take less time to complete.
Also, have you tried running 'Malwarebytes, just in case you have any malware ? Download the free version, install, update, then do a full scan. As you haven't used your laptop for so long, have you done a manual 'Windows Update' since you started it up again.
Then, it always comes back with something like "unable to load all the updates" so I keep doing that. I've tried to download the Malware bytes but, now that I think of it, everything I try to download will download about 3 % then it will seem to "hang up" and acts like it won't download anymore.

To ensure your AVG Antivirus provides full protection at all times, the AVG team analyzes new threats and information regarding new viruses, releasing updated virus definitions and antivirus improvements periodically.
The installer is suggestively called AVG Anti-Virus Definitions, which deploys the updated package of virus definitions that can be loaded into the AVG Antivirus when an Internet connection is not available or the built-in definition update function fails to work.
It is highly advisable to update the signatures from within the antivirus, if possible.
