    All good things have to end at some stage. What is the current best, free, alternative that is also light on resources?

    ------------------------------------------

    Grisoft announces the end of support for AVG version 6.0 effective on December 31, 2004 for technical reasons. This version has been available since 1999. Its structure does not allow for further improvements planned for version 7 nor improvements in detection techniques expected to come in the future.

    End of support means we will no longer provide program updates or Virus Database updates for version 6.0 and therefore, within days, this version will not protect against new virus outbreaks!

    Current AVG 6.0 users should upgrade to AVG 7.0. Information on upgrading to version 7.0 can be found at http://www.grisoft.com/us/us_upgrade.php.

    Consider the free AntiVir, you dont even need to register it, just install and go. It has a better detection rate than AVG 7 according to spywareinfo and it is discussed in my roundup review of antivirus applications (along with AVG) here .
