It is my understanding that the pcductape that I use and others are is for all 
topics..both on and off..It is the freelist one that is Nerdy about things like 
that..So I only use pcductape for all my conversations..It is the original one 
we started out on..so.....!

  Trapper, I think it said 7 would be out in December.  A free Christmas 
present, I guess.  Speaking of Christmas, let me be the first to wish everyone 
a merry one.  Oops, Thanksgiving isn't even here yet <grin> so happy 
Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it.  But, lest I get into trouble again on 
freelist for a non computer related post, Iet me just say that I am referring 
to AVG's new free version, version 7, of their anti-virus program....  Bill

    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 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??
