I just downloaded AVG 7.5 and now find it has been discontinued since April? Why continue to offer it if it is no longer valid? I am reluctant to buy anything that I have not tried and it seemed as though you had to commit to buying SOMETHING if you went with the "Free" 8.5 version...What is the story here, do I have to upgrade?

Actually, the latest version is the AVG 9.0 Free Edition. As the time flows, there are new, improved version being created and we remain supporting previous versions only for a certain time period. To catch up, I'd suggest you get the latest 9.0 version (note that since version 8.0 all AVG products support only Windows 2000, XP, Vista or Windows 7) from this link:

http://download.cnet.com/3001-20_4-10320142.html


If you found a link anywhere on the Internet related to previous version of AVG 7.5, please let us know. We will try to ask the source for updating the information on their website.

Thanks and let us know how you like the new version!

AVG 7.5 Free is actually still showing on this link http://www.filehippo.com/download_avg_antivirus/4029/. By the way the Cnet link is still for AVG 8.
