AVG Free Edition 8.0 released

By on April 25, 2008, 11:45 AM
The free edition of the AVG anti-virus has been a TechSpot favorite for quite sometime thanks to its nearly bloat-free characteristics, and for those of you who have had to go through the pre-installed Norton nightmare, you know that's quite the feat.

This new 8.0 version of AVG Free inherits some of the features from its commercial counterparts like anti-spyware protection, performance and Vista compatibility improvements, as well as a better looking interface. All in all, AVG Free should provide a very decent bare bones anti-virus service if you don't need a complete security suite, or in other words, it should be quite enough if you are simply looking for an anti-virus to run on your personal PC environment.
