AVG Free

  Dirty Dick 17:44 14 Dec 2009

A friend has just been in PC World and bought a new laptop. The assistant tried to sell him Norton Anti Virus, but my friend said he was going to use AVG Free. The assistant told him that the AVG Free version was going to be stopped. Has any one else heard this or is it just a marketing ploy, as I also use AVG Free ?

It applies only to AVG 8.5 users of the free edition are urged to update to version 9

good old PCW nothing like keeping up is there...

They are going to stop updates for AVG 8.5 But you can now use AVG9 instead.
Just PC World trying to scare your friend into buying Norton.
