Free AVG 7?

  A3 13:44 29 Dec 2004

After being told AVG 6 was discontinuing and being given the option to download AVG 7 free, I took it. It was only introduced on 22/12/04. I have had several problems when loading programs - the internet connection is corrupted and I have to reload ME. Anyone else experienced similar problems?

so I changed to another free antivirus product, AVAST...

However, though this works, I don't find it quite as intuitive, and it does seem to be slower when scanning the system.

The main problem with AVG7 was that Control Centre kept "not responding"

I should add that I had already been having a number of different, and unassociated problems, with my system, (other programmes misbehaving), so it is likely that the problem is not with AVG.

My system is Win98se, and I shall soon be re-installing to sort out these problems which have become numerous. assuming I am successful, I think I shall return to using AVG

Good luck,

Thanks each. One way to get round the issue is to remove AVG before any program is loaded, and then reinstall it after. Up to now, and I have used it for over a year, it has been great.
