AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 8.0
Now that AVG is the most popular Anti-Virus, and I assume that you use nothing else, it’s time for another version upgrade. See, AVG is notorious for making it seem that they are discontinuing their free edition anti-virus for users every time they release a new version. Thing is, free-version users need only to wait for the last couple of days prior to expiration before they release the official download links for the free version. AVG Anti-Virus 7.5 is expiring tomorrow – meaning they will stop giving regular virus database updates and software updates for version 7.5 users.
Now they have the links for the free version exposed and obvious in their website. Simple go here, click on Continue to AVG Free download, click again on Continue to AVG Free download, then click on Download AVG Free 8.0. But wait, let me save you some time by saying I encountered some problems downloading the installer from Download.com – I reinstalled using the the downloaded installer from AVG’s server. I have no explanation for this whatsoever except that the file sizes from the two servers are off by a hundred bytes or so. So there you go, just install the new version and it will take care of all the “upgrading.”
