    free no more

    you're gonna get this window after the latest update

    avg has been a great tool, I always said I would pay more for avg then norton if I had to

    still have some free time left, till 2007

    [edit]

    I thought the free was discontinued, as ep points out, it's just upgraded, link provided below

    very sneaky, but a nice releaf, I love avg

    anyway, on install of 7.5, hit repair install instead of reinstall

    I have AVG 7.5 and it is free. This is from the free AVG site ..
    From the looks of that; there will remain a free verison, but they will also be discontinuing the 7.1 version .. :)

    I purchased Pro myself and had no problems just thoriwng 7.5 straight over the top of 7.1
    Did uninstall it to check out the Onecare beta, but it doesn't work with x64 :eek:

    I don't care for onecare that much .. It seems too inntrusive .. Lite and simple is the best way to do it. Which is why I like AVG. Plus, you don't have to pay 50.00 a year for the updates :)

    I have done the 7.1-7.5 on a few machines, some take the over install and some don't. Not really much of a pain to un-install so that is what I have done for the most part.
