AVG 7.5 going in April

  Nuneatonian 08:58 26 Mar 2009

Hi all
I have been informed by AVG that my 7.5 is not going to be updated in April. i know they have an upgrade to 8, that you have to pay for. I have looked at the forums in PCA and it seems it has problems. Can anyone advise me if I decide to change it to another anti spyware, how do I remove it, and recommend any others that are free.
I have Vista.

Yes but for my old Win 98SE laptop, only AVG 7.5 is compatible so if 7.5 finishes, I am looking for a replacement - Avast?

Avast state that their free home edition works on all Windows from Win95.

Hi all
Dowloaded AVG8 but it is not working. Came up at the toolbar not up to date. I decide to restore back t0 7.5.
I thought I would try again, this time the virus protection would not turn on in the malware protection section on the security centre. Restored it again, thought it says 7,5 virus scanning is still on the other things connected with this are not coming up. If you click on the items in programmes this comes up"Could not initilise AVG Anti-Virus kernal interface. Appplication cannot run"
I have even tried the uninstall for 7.5 but this notice comes up again. Wanted to try another ani virus such as avast, what do I do now?
I am in a right mess now help please. I am not a computer buff!! Please be gentle

Thanks- will switch my laptop on W 98SE when AVG 7.5 stops.

I downloaded the tool but unfortunately a box came up and said AVG set up installation failed.
What do I do now.

The installation tool, how do I uninstall this, you have to buy it after 30days
