The popular free choice for virus protection, AVG, announced a new version recently: (http://www.grisoft.com/us.93836). I just tested it out myself and it seems like a great upgrade.
Version 8 includes new features and a new, easier to use interface. It’s supposed to be faster, but its performance is questioned by some. I personally didn’t experience any additional delays after installing 8.0. It includes anti-spyware built in, which is great for XP users.
Version 8 also includes “Link Scanner”, which I didn’t like at all. It checks each link as you browse the web. That’s too slow for me. In the options, you can disable this (I did).
AVG Free 8 can be downloaded from: http://tinyurl.com/4or34z Or, if we routinely maintain your computer, we’ll probably upgrade you on our next visit.
