AVG Free Edition

May 31, 2008

For a number of years now we have been recommending AVG Free edition as the ideal Anti Virus product for the average home PC user. It has many advantages over other Anti Virus products:

* It is free of charge for home PC users
* It does not consume lots of memory and processor power, so is ideal for older less powerful PC’s
* It is very effective at protecting your PC from Viruses

Recently AVG released a major update to their AVG products. Those with the paid for AVG products will automatically be upgraded to the new version, but the AVG Free users will have to upgrade manually. The existing AVG Free Version 7.5 will not receive any virus database updates after 31st May 2008, so users of the old free product will need to uninstall version 7.5 and install the newer version 8.0 as soon as possible to ensure continued full virus protection.

Some of our customers have had some difficulty in finding the download link for the new AVG Free Edition program so we have put a link to the download on our webpage. Just go to our website www.computerrepairinrugby.co.uk and you will find AVG Free Edition V8 under the “useful links” section on the right hand side of our web page.

Please note that the AVG Free edition is only for home PC users. Business users, or home PC users requiring more advanced virus & spyware protection, should consider the paid for AVG Anti Virus and AVG Internet Security products. We are an authorised AVG reseller so can supply these paid for products if you require them (you can purchase and download via our website, or we can visit you to supply and install these products). However, the average home PC user will find the basic AVG Free version will give perfectly adequate protection from Viruses.
