Has anyone else had an email from AVG telling them that the free AVG will not be available after 1-12-09.
It looks as if I am going to have to change to something else.-???????

Are you sure it's not just the latest version that ends? Then the next version will be free as usual.

Nope! it stated that the free version is being discontinude.
I have lost the email so I cant put it on here grrr.

It's a misunderstanding as I thought.

From click here:

"Important: You must upgrade to version 9 by December 1, 2009

AVG 8.5 is being replaced by AVG 9 and you will have to upgrade to stay protected. Updates for your current AVG Free will not be available after December 1, 2009."

Yes . you are correct. My apologies. Put it down to old age :-((
I have just upgraded to AVG9

But if you remember Grisoft said the same thing about upgrading from 7.5 to 8 - and in fact the updates continued for many months after that.

Following comments on this and the W7 forum, as I will switch to W7 in a couple of weeks, I think I will ditch AVG when 8.5 expires and switch to MS Security Essentials.
