Been getting daily annoyware pop-ups from AVG for a couple of weeks now, about upgrading to AVG 8.0 - When you look at the details, though, you find it's gonna cost you!
New twist in the tail this morning: The pop-up now states that 'Support for AVG 7.5 will end on 31st May'- so we HAVE to upgrade to AVG 8.0 for ongoing AV protection.
So does this mean the end of AVG FREE as we know it? Cheers- AL

[edit]- To answer my own question: The pop-ups are not making it clear that a FREE upgrade to AVG 8.0 is available. Well it IS!
