Avg Free Anti-virus Discontinued
Posted 14 May 2008 - 04:41 PM
Everyone running AVG Free Anti-virus should have already received this notice, but for anyone who didn't...
AVG Free 7.5 will no longer be supported after the end of this month!
The good news is that AVG has finally released the free "basic" edition of their latest version, 8.0.
Download AVG FREE 8.0 Here
Unlike previous versions, AVG Free 8.0 is both anti-virus and anti-spyware/adware software. It also has a new "Safe Search" feature which works with search engines like Google to indicate whether sites you are about to visit contain malicious content.
I've been running 8.0 Free for a few days now and I have to say that I like it. The interface is vastly improved, the new features work well, and so far it runs completely in the background. (No more program update "pop-ups" to clutter the screen when turning the computer on or anything!)

Is the anti spy ware program changing too?

The stand alone AVG anti-spyware and anti-rootkit programs are being completely discontinued.
Since the new anti-virus free 8.0 has anti-spyware integrated, it's really not an issue. I'll miss the anti-rootkit though.
