Hello folks.
Just got message that as of Jan. /07 AVG Free won't exist,
  but will now cost $$.

Can you recomend an equally effective free anti-virus program,
 with regular free updates.

Thanks.  Please reply to NG.

Replace it with AVG v7.5 which will replace it or better yet...

What is it with all these questions about "AVG no longer free" ?

It was a simple task to find this page:

http://free.grisoft.com/doc/avg-anti-virus-free/lng/us/tpl/v5

They are upgrading the version, but it is still free.

I can recommend a much better product:
http://www.activevirusshield.com/antivirus/freeav/index.adp ?

AVS is based on Kaspersky version 6. It excludes KAV's web
protection and proactive defense modules, and includes
file and email scanning. Realtime protection is enabled by
default. You can opt for either automatic or manual
updates. Just don't opt for the Toolbar during installation.

Hi,

Go for either of the following.

Antivir Personal Edition Classic - http://www.free-av.com
Avast Home edition - http://www.avast.com .

Comodo antivirus is there, but I had lots of bitter experiences with it
and hence I won't recommend this to anyone. Also, I heard its detection
rate is also not good.

Thanks,
Balaji.

Don't be so goddamn cheap! Buy a good AV and quit your bitching.

Hey bughumper,
you're hectoring me as if you are the self-appointed
newsgroup ANUS  (  Ayatollah of Newsgroup User Society ).

Even free AV has value to the provider .. attracts customers for other
products; and mines valuable data from registrations that is worth $$.

If you want to be the ANUS, wait for the election.
You've got my vote.

Download it with torrents. Go to www.torentspy.com, search AVG to get
the torrent, downaload it, open it with uTorrent, wait till it's
finished downloading and presto instant AVG with a key.

That or download it using kazaa.

AVG is still free. Just google for "free AVG" (new version 7.5) and
download, follow instructions
