The "installation" rules include something about a "Time Out" Feature that may render the software "inoperable after the end of the period". Does AVG FREE 2011 have a "trial period" that disables use or updates? This was not part of previous AVG FREE versions?

There's definitely no time limit regarding the use of AVG Free 2011. Are you sure that you've downloaded the correct AVG Free install file. There's a 30 day free trial period if you have downloaded the trial version of the AVG Pro (paid for) version.

Hmmmm....OK, i wonder what the notes mean?

The dload file is: avg_free_stb_all_2011_1153_cnet.exe
The "Welcome" screen on the AVG Installer (required to Accept) includes "NOTICE: THE SOFTWARE MAY CONTAIN A "TIME OUT" FEATURE THAT WILL RENDER THE SOFTWARE INOPERATIVE AT THE END OF THE TERM (AS DEFINED BELOW).
What is this all about? So, is there a "time out" feature?
