AVG no longer free :(

  donki 20:23 19 Mar 09

Have to say I am gutted that from April 12 AVG 7.5 (free) will no longer be supported. Has been the best AV I have used. Question is what are my options now? Are there any other good free AV programs or will I finially have to buy one.

Don't feel stupid it doesn't work for everyone!

A year ago I switched to Avast because of problems with the upgrade.

I also was using AVG 7.5, and was quite happy. Support and updates for this ceased on 18th March, and I was invited to download version 8.5.

I had previously tried version 8, and like many others on this forum had problems, and reverted to 7.5. Perhaps 8.5 is better, but I decided not to risk it and installed Avast. So far I am satisfied with it.

Thanks guys,

I installed 8.5 free and it seems to work just as good, updates are easy and it ticks over without any system slowdown or anything. All good.

Unfortunately AVG version 8 or 8.5 is not compatible with Windows98. Will have to look forward something else to use on my steam driven laptop!
