I think your right Bill. I "Dl" this version and it just installed my old free 
version of avg6.Used the same S/n.
Did it say when 7 was coming out?

  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:

            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

              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??
