Re: avg free discontinued

very sneaky, but a nice releaf, I love avg

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

glad their still doing the free

Don't see a reason to - it was a question that has been answered ;)

AHH but it wasnt a question but rather a statement, unless I am just not reading it right...

I have AVG 7.5 and it is free. This is from the free AVG site ..
New Free Anti-Virus

GRISOFT is announcing a new version of the AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition. This new 7.5 version with improved performance and user interface is available. Users that are using AVG Free 7.1 will be provided with a specific dialog, within the next few weeks, with the opportunity to choose the right option fulfilling their needs. AVG Free 7.1 version will be discontinued on 15th of Jan 2007.
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.
