AVG free 8.0 or 8.5??

  palinka 14:25 25 Mar 2009

I've used AVG free for years, very happy with it.
Currently using version 8.0 on laptop (XP) and desktop (Vista)
A pop-up on laptop suggests upgrade to 8.5 (link actually goes to the paid-for version, but there is another link to free version 8.5
Does anyone have advice about this, based on experience?
I wonder why it's not beeen offered on my Vista machine. Looks as though it doesn't offer much more than version 8.0
Should I bother?

thanks very much Sea Urchin. I'd done a search but it didn't show that thread.

Downloading Installation Files is very slow. I think AVG send out these invitations a few at a time, but then their server is swamped.

I've downloaded and installed Free 8.5 on my XP machine but not the Vista . No particular reason.
All seems Ok and I haven't noticed any differences - yet. I agree, Graham , about the download time.
