    Default Replacement For AVG?

    I've received a message that free AVG is going to be disconnected soon, but that I can continue as a subscriber.
    Are there any other free and effective anti virus programmes out there?

    Smile Re: Replacement For AVG?

    I don't know how good it is but Avast was on the magazine CD recently. I assume you are using Windows. I was using AVG for Linux but don't know if the new 7.5 is either free or available for Linux yet. Consequently, i am running without antivirus at present. However, I do have the firewall configured so should be OK.

    You need to go to the AVG website and download it, it is not an update...

    Its only 7.1 and may expire the same as the Windows version. May pay to check somehow and confirm this.

    Before u get it / install it.

    Paradox - it runs on Win 98 SE at least.

    Notice that v. 7.5 at least starts in DOS - if you check its properties in Desktop it shows a DOS tabbed page set not a Windows one.
