AVG free 7.5 upgrade

  golfpro 06:11 14 Nov 2006

I am using AVG free edition 7.1. I was informed this morning (from AVG), that this will be discontinued on the 15th Jan. and be replaced by a free edition of version 7.5.
I have scanned the avg web site but can not find any downloads for a 7.5 free edition.
Has anyone else had this notice, and is it available yet.

Thanks Old Mod.
Did you install it over the old 7.1 version?
I think I read somewhere that you can do this without problems.

I used the 'repair' facility after downloading & running the installation program. This overwrites 7.1. It worked without problem on 4 machines, all running XP Home, SP2.

Having said that, if you do have problems then nikef's solution is good.

Thank you all, used the "repair facility" option and everything went fine.
