I've been using it for some weeks. No problems so far. Virus database updates for both versions seem to come out simultaneously.

From there web site.

I Uninstalled AVG 6. If I remember right it detects a previous version and uninstalls it automatically.

Hi all,

I've been using the AVG 6.0 free virus checker for ages now. After looking at the AVG website I cannot find the beta version.

Is it available to version 6.0 users? If so where 'exactly' on the AVG website is it?

Many thanks,

I have tried it twice and on both occasions it caused me trouble.
It stopped me connecting to the internet via my broadband . On both occasions Zone Alarm showed that it was blocking routed calls every time I attempted to use the net. or checked mails.
AVG said that it was not caused by the Beta AVG and fobbed me off with a standard mail. So much for beta testing.

Caused me loads of problems and also used up more
memory on my older system so back to AVG6 ok again.
