    Okay, I won't post a link to AVG but version 7.1 is no longer supported because there is a new free version 7.5.

    Avast is very good free anti-virus. Click here.

    Well, I agree. I went to AVG and found the same thing. That's why I mentioned the free 7.5 version. The last time AVG came out with a new free version and discontinued support of an older version, a couple of posters came here with the same misinterpretation. They thought there was no more free AVG too.

    I don`t know where you got your mis-information from, but it`s completely wrong.

    AVG free antivirus is still available. It`s just a new version 7.5, the old version 7.1 has been dicontinued and no longer has any support from Grisoft.

    Here`s a list of good free security programmes I recommend, including links.

    AVG free or Avast antivirus programmes.

    Zonealarm or Kerio free firewall programmes.

    Spybot Search & Destroy.

    Ad-Aware se personal.

    Spyware Blaster.

    AVG Antispyware.

    Ccleaner.

    Regards Howard :)

    If you are a US Department of Defense employee, you can LEGALLY download several different anti-virus for use on a home system through the government home-use program. Army personnel can access this software and more under their AKO accounts.
