AVG: Become Legal

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
For the last few days when I turn on my pc at home (xp pro) I've been
getting the following message from AVG:

    Dear AVG user!
    You may not be aware that you might be using your AVG Anti-Virus Free in
conflict with our License Agreement. AVG Anti-Virus Free is for private,
non-commercial, single home computer use only.
    (blah blah, with link to "BECOME LEGAL"

I am using it on single computer at home (although I do have a network with
two other pcs which run other anti-virus products). As far as I am aware I
am not in violation of any of their terms.

Does anyone have any ideas why I might be getting this message and what I
can do about it?

Thanks.

There is a post on this subject in alt.comp.freeware under the heading
:-
AVG Free tells me I may be running it illegally?

It is apparently some thing to do with domains.

I think you are spot on, and thank you for the heads up on the thread in
alt.comp.freeware - the links from that are useful.

I do run a domain at home, but since I only have AVG on one pc (mine!) and
its for personal no-business use, I'm inside the license terms. Looking at
the grisoft forum (which the thread in alt.comp.freeware put me on to), it
seems the bottom line is to either ignore the message (it is "only" a
warning after all) or move to a different free anti-virus product (which I'm
reluctant to do because I'm used to AVG and been otherwise very happy with
it).

Thanks.

If you like AVG that much you could always pay for it. Somebody has to
contribute to its R&D costs.
