First off, regarding AVG Free Edition…
Those of you who use AVG free may have noticed that they want you to pay for the upgrade to version 8. However, there is a way around it. You must uninstall the old version before downloading the new free version.
I stumbled onto a great blogger who has covered literally ALL of the ups and downs, and pros and cons, of using AVG.
You might want to look at his blog before deciding what to do.
He also has listed options for other free antivirus software programs.
Needless to say, I have bookmarked this great blog!
