Free AVG ending 31st May. Is everyone getting this message, is there a free alternative available I don’t fancy paying Norton or any of the others a monthly sub, all suggestions welcome, I thought there would be lots of posts on this unless I’m looking in the wrong place. Bill-5 :Cheers:

I've ditched AVG for now and i'm giving NOD32 a try, so far it's been ok.

The new AVG has the anti-spyware built in which is good :) Still on 7.5 pro at the mo so just waiting for the info on updating that :proud:

Friend of mine just found out the hard way! I advised him against installing AVG as I have had an infection using it. He rang me a few days ago to say that his Laptop had been infected!! It might be free but AVG is not very good at stopping viruses.

I have used AVG for about 3 years now ever since Norton slowed my PC to a halt! I have never had ANY infections while using it. I'm not saying your friend didn't have one, just that that isn't my experiance of AVG!

You shouldn't, or your friend should only have one type of software installed.

He should have, at least imo 3 just to be on the safe side.

Whatever it maybe, Mcafee, Nod32, AVG, Kaspersky it'll do...

I've got Mcafee Virus/Spyware, Windows Defender and AVG 8. It does the job perfectly, alerts me if there is any problems...and it easy to use which is great.

You have to remember that there are loads and loads of these softwares around, you just have to pick what ever preference you have...and obviously which has geniune positive feedback/reviews on.

Cheers,
Fizsparky.
