During the last update, I seem to have been under the impression that my AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition will expire in January 2007. After updating, a pop-up will appear saying that your AVG 7.1 edition will expire on January 2007 and it is versed (very well) in such a way that usersÂ will think that AVG is ending their free service (which usually happens when a software company has accumulatedÂ loads of followers) for life. At least that’s what I, a couple of colleagues, and apparentlyÂ some international forumers as well (Googled) thought. Following the link from the pop-up will also land you in aÂ very confusing pageÂ that was not really meant for us free users.
It’sÂ still free.
What we only need to know is that version 7.1 will cease toÂ be free in January 2007 but the latestÂ version (7.5)Â will still be free. AllÂ one needs to do is to upgrade to 7.5.
To upgrade to 7.5:
1. Go to http://free.grisoft.com/.
2. Click on Downloads.
3. Go to Installation files & documentation.
4. Download the appropriate file and look for Update of AVG 7.1 to 7.5 (Additional instructions there)
