    AVG 8.0 Free Editon

    Is anyone using this? I'm trying to decide whether or not to upgrade to this version. I've read mixed reviews about it. Mrs. yCy

    Re: AVG 8.0 Free Editon

    Been using it since it came out with no issues. It combines their antispyware and anti virus into one program and offers automated scans, so it is a upgrade in that way. Since you could not do automated scans on the anti spyware software before.

    I've used AVG Free for quite a long time, never had an issue.

    The new AVG is good stuff. My only issue with it is that a scan can take a couple hours. I suggest starting your scan just before you are ready for bed and letting it run unattended.

    Re: AVG 8.0 Free Editon

    I've been using AVG's free version for 3 months now, and, knock on "particle board", er, wood, (nerdy joke, sorry ), I have not had any problems. Then again, I don't surf questionable sites or open questionable e-mail attachments. Wait, is CF a "questionable" web site?


    We have a new sheriff in town, and his name is "The Mayor".

    Is this a trial version or free version? If there's a free version can someone post a link?

    Re: AVG 8.0 Free Editon

    I've had no problems with it.

    I'm beginning to regret every dollar I've spent on anti-virus software over the years. These free versions work fine, to the extent that I've ever needed anti-virus software at all...which I probably haven't.
