    Exclamation End of Support for AVG 6.0

    *End of Support for AVG 6.0
    Grisoft announces the end of support for AVG version 6.0 effective on December 31, 2004 for technical reasons. This version has been available since 1999. It's structure does not allow for further improvements planned for version 7 nor improvements of detection techniques expected to come in the future.

    End of support means we will no longer provide program updates or Virus Database updates for version 6.0 and therefore, within days, this version will not protect against new virus outbreaks!

    Current AVG 6.0 users should upgrade to AVG 7.0. Information on upgrading to version 7.0 can be found at http://www.grisoft.com/us/us_upgrade.php.

    Hi hayc59



    Does this mean the end of a Free Version?

    The site is very confusing at least to me. I downloaded what i thought to be a New Free Version only to find it is still the 6

    AVG6781FU-Free

    If there is a Free Version 7, could you please supply a direct link to it.

    Thanks in advance

    ---

    regards

    Thanks Hayc. Haven't been around too much lately. Flat out with working and sleeping.

    They (Grisoft) announced early during the release of Ver.7 that a free version of V.7 would be available to those who wanted it after the removal of Ver.6 support.

    Congrats to Grisoft for carrying this through. The need to panic is over.
