AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 8 improves on both areas, and is an essential upgrade, as updates will be stopped for the previous version 7.5. If you already have AVG installed it is best to click on the upgrade option when it is offered. If you have never installed it before, this is the download to use. We would recommend disconnecting from the internet during installation as there will a period where there is no protection.
As noted the interface of AVG Free has been improved and it is easier to see what protection AVG is providing and what needs attention with icons in the main part of the screen. Tabs along the left hand side give quick access to important information on updates and ongoing scans.
In addition to tradition antivirus protection, AVG Free now offers protection from Spyware without installing extra software.
