AVG Free 7.5 support ending 31st May

I've used the free version of Grisoft's AVG's anti-virus software for a long time now, currently at v7.5 - I used to be a Norton fan, but got fed up with:
  • Annual payments to "upgrade" when the existing version was doing quite all right thank you, which also meant...
  • More bloat and "functionality" that I didn't want but had to install
  • Problems with a couple of programs that didn't like Norton AV
Back to AVG, v7.5 is no longer being supported after 31st May, so if you're a user, and judging by the numbers of emails I get with "Checked by AVG" tagged at the bottom, there are a lot of you out there, you need to upgrade to v8.0 asap.

It's a 45mb download available from this link. Judging by the slowish download speeds, I reckon a lot of people are upgrading today!

If you want enhanced AV protection you could upgrade to the paid version at £30 or go for the whole hog internet security suite at around £40.
