AVG Is Still Free


If you use AVG's free edition of virus protection, you probably recently saw that alert that says their free version will expire on January 17.  The alert asks you to upgrade to a paid model of AVG protection, and many of you might think that's your only option.  It's not.

I first saw this alert last Sunday and did some digging on the AVG site.  It turns out this is nothing more than a sneaky marketing ploy to get you to cough up some coin.  There will still be a free version of AVG and you can download AVG 7.5 from

I've already made the switch and all is well.  AVG Free is still the better way, they've just hidden it with a tinier font size.
