Now I can't find specific information relating to AVG 7 Free Edition but this link is all i can find so far....

click here

This news has made my day. I've briefly tried AVG 7 and i think the 200 kb downloads will be more benficial than the 3 mb ones to update. the interface is OK but i didn't havwe time to run an extensive test.

Well spotted Jester 2K 11

Well been running it for the last two hours or so. Interface is really starting to get in my **** and is nowhere near as user friendly as the old version 6. Apart from that it seems pretty much the same (except for the Shrek type character on the VIRUS FOUND message box!!!)

Updates are smaller - 300kb instead of 3 Mb

I still can't make a rescue disk under Win XP Home!!

Full system scan times - not much change in time over AVG 6

Tell them any problems mailto:[email protected]

Tell them it is not user friendly, also could you send me a screen shot of it.

Why does it say Virus found? Do you have on that AVG didnt find or was it the eicar test?

Regards,
Gareth

AVG 6.0 Free Edition CAN NOT BE INSTALLED ON SERVERS FOR ANY REASON. IT CAN NOT BE INSTALLED IN ANY NETWORKED ENVIRONMENT! < WHY NOT.

And I though CAPS was shouting!

I have 5 networked PC's, why can I not do that?

"valid for all single home users" The word single is the key here

I suspect you could use it on all the PCs but not on any acting as a server. Its their license they are giving you for free. Up to them what they can let you do with it...

They want you to pay for it.

5 computers - small buisness enviroment?

Not for PERSONAL use.
