In the past, it seems that there was somewhere in the AVG Free versions that one could go to and click on "Return to prior version". I thought that this might happen (or that it would at least state the option there for me to click on) when I went to the Control Panel and proceeded to uninstall AVG Free 2014; however, it did not.
I did a search, too, for the installation program of AVG Free 2013 on my computer, but when AVG Free 2014 was installed, it must have taken that off because I did not find it on my computer anymore.
Please help. Currently, I just don't like the style/features/etc. of AVG 2014 yet, so I would like to return to my prior AVG 2012 version for awhile longer.
thanks for any help someone can give me, in order to accomplish this.

Well, unfortunately, Big Al 43, that didn't work. I uninstalled and removed AVG Free 2014, and restarted my computer when prompted.
Then, when I clicked on the AVG Free 2012 download that I'd got from the link you gave me, it proceeded thru, until it told me that there was an updated version and that that AVG Free 2012 download had expired, and thus it was going to install the newest AVG Free version instead....and wanted me to click Ok.
I'm preferring NOT to get the AVG Free 2014 at this time, though, as I'd stated in the beginning.
You have any other download links for the 2012, possibly??

I would settle for AVG Free 2013, if you can't find a 2012. I just don't want to get the AVG Free 2014 just yet.
Thanks.

You could try this but it may still redirect you to 2014?.. http://www.FileHippo.com/download_avg_antivirus_64/12832/.

I'm trying to do the same thing (obtain AVG Free 2011 32 bit).

I get "file not found" at http://aa-download.avg.com/filedir/inst/avg_free_x86_all_2011_1392a3812.exe

I understand why AVG would discourage the use of old versions, but surely they must retain these files somewhere in their archives. Is there any way to make a special request for this so I don't have to resort to finding it on one of those sketchy file hosting sites?

I'm not expecting an immediate answer. An employee of AVG eventually responded with a helpful post to another thread I started, which was much appreciated given that this is free software. Perhaps that will happen here too.
