Looks like the free version is available now for those that want to download it.
If it has been mentioned before sorry but have not noticed.

Have just downloaded and started installation. Part way through a dialogue box opens telling me that AVG9 Free is incompatible with Zonealarm and that I should uninstall it before continuing the installation of AVG. I'm not very happy removing Zonealarm, which I have used successfully for many years. Has anyone else had this problem?

Maybe switch Zone alarm of then install AVG.Not sure if that will help or not.

I have just put a thread regarding this problem on the AVG support forum. If there is any solution, I'll report back.

Ok thanks for the feedback at least it will stop others from downloading it until the Zone Alarm problem is fixed.

Thanks. I have Free Comodo firewall, SAS and MAB. Hope none of these clash with AVG 9. Will stay with 8.5 (free ) for a bit to see if more people comment.

Anyone tried the new version yet and would care to comment on it.Faster,Slower no difference from the old version.Better.
Looks like a few conflicts with Firewalls you would have thought that they would have known that this would happen and maybe gave us a warning on how to avoid it.

Thanks for the imput.It always helps others to decide when they know what to expect.I am waiting for Windows7 before I download it.So any information is always helpfull.
