  Sparkly 16:49 11 Jul 2008

Hi all i have been watching the number of threads about AVG 8.0 and the problems that some people had been getting since they upgraded from 7.5 to 8.0 that is why i have held off upgrading from my AVG 7.5, since the cut off date in june i get promted to upgrade daily AVG still updates automaticly when there is an update and i allso right click the AVG icon in the notification area and select check for updates it has just done so and installed AVG Database version 1546 as this is still updating for me each day or when there is an update am i still protected as i was a month ago before the release of version 8.0 or should i now go over to it (basicly have they iron out the problems people were getting).

I would stay with 7.5 for the time being.

You will still be protected on 7.5 as long as they keep updating. When they stop doing so you will have to use 8 or stay with 7.5 without further updates or find another A/V prog

"since the cut off date in june i get promted to upgrade daily "

Me too and although it is merely a question of clicking to get rid of it I think it is a liberty and am seriously considering another programme.

A new end of support date for AVG 7.5 apparently:

Originally they (the moderators on the AVG Forum) said 7.5 would be supported until the end of the year.

Now, according to your link only the paid for version will still receive updates.

Methinks there is so much messing about I am going to switch allegiance - after eleven years!!

Nothing wrong with version 8 for me

Hi Nuts,Pamy,ened, and thanks for the replys i think i will stick with the 7.5 version for now. Pamy took your thoughts on if the updates stop then i will have to consider the version 8.0 or something else, thanks for your link provider 2 hope that they do keep going till August.
Thanks everyone.
