End of Support for AVG 6.0 - Please Read

Taken from their Website.

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. It's structure does not allow for further improvements planned for version 7 nor improvements of 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 click here.

Free version 7 (beta) click here
The Beta version of AVG Free Edition will expire 11/30/2004. By this time, the final version of this product will be available for your free download.

Looking at it this seems to refer particularly to users of AVG 6 pro that didn't upgrade when 7 became available. The users of AVG free will probably need to change to the new version of AVG free (Currently available as a beta download ) when it comes on line towards the end of November.

Have tried the Beta version without any problems, although I have heard of others who have.

Yes, there was some mention of this on their site a couple of months back. AVG 6 is coming to the end of its life cycle but there will be a free version of AVG 7 available shortly after.

works fine for me - and found items that AVG6 had missed the same day ;)

Sorry, But when will support and updated definitions actually stop. I take it that will be at the same time as the release of free AVG 7?
