avg free

hi, i have just noticed that avg free is 32 bit and the pro version is 64bit, does this make any odds to what operating system or processor you are using? ie i had a amd 64 cpu but was running 32 bit xp, sorry if this is a daft question i was just curious and does other security software come the same way?

It would seem very strange for the Pro version to be "64 bit" only.

It would, it seems to me, to eliminate the vast majority of customers.

Don't know where this info came from. Can you provide any sort of link to it. I was working with a company that used Pro on its server last year and all their machines were 32 bit.

I use AVG Pro. All my machines are 32 bit.

i read it here i think, was just killing some time looking around, i just wondered if the free version protected my 64 cpu as i had a problem with it a while ago and wondered why?

That's nothing to do with the type of cpu you have.

It's saying that the free version of AVG only works on a 32bit operating system.

The pro version will also support 64bit operating systems and Specialised server operating systems as well as the more common 32bit versions of Windows.
