Threaded View
I'm getting pop-ups announcing end of support for AVG 7.1 Free and offering
upgrade to v7.5. Cannot find any mention of AVG 7.5 Free on the AVG site. Is
this the end of AVG Free?

Is

I hope so. Like "A Day Without Mexicans",  a day without freeware would be
fun to observe..

Version 7.5's functionality takes over on January 15
Version 7.1's functions will continue to work until then.

New features of version 7.5 free:

1. Resident shield will become unavailable
2. Automatic updates will not function
3. Scheduled scans will not function

You can only use AVG 7.5 free to manually scan

To check this out try a fresh install of 7.5 free
