AVG Technologies has released an updated version of its free security software, AVG Anti-Virus Free 8.0.

The software offers basic protection against viruses together with a scaled down version of the patent-pending AVG LinkScanner technology which is designed to offer protection against spyware.

Designed for use on single computers running Windows 2000, XP or Vista, AVG Anti-Virus Free 8.0 is initially being made available in English, with other language versions planned for release over the coming months and months.

"With the release of AVG Anti-Virus Free 8.0, we are underscoring our belief that all computer users, regardless of their computer usage needs, have the right to a safe and worry-free computing experience," says Karel Obluk, chief technology officer at AVG Technologies.
