Most recent AVG & Grisoft cruelty to AVG free 7.5 users on Windows 98

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

Threaded View
After no updates for a long time there was an update which required a
reboot.   A faint dream that Grisoft might have relented and decided to
throw a bone to old users, but that was not to be!

It again said to again update the database  to bring it up to date, and
it required another reboot.   Two updates and two reboots later and what
does one find?

All that all that had been accomplished is that Grisoft had installed
another add-on to AVG 7.5 to tell you finally that there will be no more
virus data base updates, and you MUST update to AVG free 8.5.

Certainly a link was provided, but we all know what happens when you get
there with Windows 98, only you don't find out quickly if you didn't
already know.  Only curmudgeons still run an old operating system.

Tough luck old man, you shouldn't be running an obsolete system that
Microsoft no longer supports, so we don't either!

You are actually surprised that a software vendor discontinues or never
supports a long unsupported operating system?  Gee, why aren't you
complaining that AVG doesn't support CPM, AmigaDOS, TRS-DOS, OS/2 Warp,
or NeXT?  I'm sure if you wanted to throw $5M at Grisoft that they'd get
together a group of devs to make an interim Win98 version update.

Get in that newfangled horseless-carriage thing and go to the big city
and look into upgrading your system.
