This appears to be version 6 of the free AVG, which is going away soon.  Thanks 
to Rick, we now know there is going to be a free offering of version 7.  Think 
I'll wait for it....   Bill

Trapper: I work on a lot of machines and do not run a program (on purpose) to 
stop spyware, however, I have that Adawarese works well and once pop ups  start 
then update and run adaware and it does a good job on removing the spyware. It 
is free and is at: http://www.download.com/3000-2144-10045910.html

Thanks for the reply Bill. So far I have not gathered a list together...
I don't know if it's just my imagination or what, but as of late I don't get to 
many replies back. I ask and ask, but no responses. Perhaps they just are not 
reading my emails anymore..Got tired of me I guess!
I am sure it is not because they don't know..Too many smart folks on here for 
that.
If I ever get any where with this I will for sure let you know what I end up 
with.
I have switched over to the antivir also. Think it was Pam who first let me 
onto this one.
Are you happy with Earthlink?
I get my Isp for free, so that is the only reason I have stayed put over the 
years.

Trapper, Earthlink pretty well takes care of all the spam, popups, etc. for me, 
so antivirus is just about the only free program I use any more.  I've used 
AntiVir and it works well.  AVG was my choice, though, because it updated 
quicker and before broadband became available to me that was important.  But 
when AVG support goes away, I'll go back to AntiVir if it remains free. 
Let me know what programs you come up with for that list.  There might be some 
I could use.... Thanks,  Bill

Hi Bill; 
You know that is exactly how I read the notice... 
OH well fun while it lasted... 
Did you get my note about asking everyone for a list of possible programs they 
use for anti-virus, ads, spam etc...Looking to compile a list of the best 
freebies out there and then use them on my machine..

Sounds to me like the free version is coming to an end.  They're now wanting us 
to go to the purchased 7.0 version.  There is still AntiVir at 
http://www.free-av.com/index.htm

The upgrade has got me confused... 
I have the one that we all at one time or another "DL" from the internet and 
they sent us a Password.. It was a freebie...Are they now telling us that this 
one is no longer any good? OR does all this only apply to the one that is 
purchased??
