Visit Stack Exchange I've installed AVG Anti-virus Free on two computers and I'm using Windows 7 on both.
After I downloaded the AVG files (saved to desktop), there are 2 files on the desktop:1) avg_free_stf_en_8_138a1332 (application file) 2) avg_free_stf_en_8_138a1332(PART File)Normally the installation launches when I double click it. According to below, I should have been more cautious. you for everyone's advice. I still get 2 files when I download from the AVG website (via CNET's).
Even when I tried to download AVAST, I still got 2 files. I don't think I can restore AVG back to when I had version 7.5 though. You would have to go FAR back to get to your "old" AVG 7.5 .......
IF the restore points works - have a look WHAT you have in your "quarantined" folder and IF you can delete what you have in there. I tried to restore to when I uninstalled AVG 7.5 (~May23, 200 but I received a message that says that the restoration was not possible.
Doesn't that defeat the purpose of a "restore" if they won't let me go back to when I uninstalled 7.5?
AVG provides AVG Anti Virus Free for Windows, AVG Anti Virus for Mac for mac OS, and AVG Anti Virus for Android for Android devices.
All are freemium products: They are free to download, install, update and use, but for technical support, a premium plan must be purchased.
Paradoxically enough, a different computer, on which I also run AVG Free was upgraded a week or so after this first one. In fact, every computer I have seen running AVG Free 8 seems to have the problem.All fine and well, I did so, and after another google-search found the free version, which I downloaded and installed.Now, I don’t mind paying for quality products, but frankly, there are so many good, free anti-virus solutions out there, that I really don’t see the need to pay for one (and the ones you pay for are in my experience usually inferior as well…). I had “upgraded” to AVG Free 8, and updated the databases when, in the corner of my eye, I saw the following message: Naturally, I updated the signature files, but my system tray still looked like this: I browsed around the web, and found that I wasn’t the only one experiencing this problem.It seems AVG is mucking about with the time and date settings, which is disappointing to say the least.The brand AVG comes from Grisoft's first product, "Anti-Virus Guard", launched in 1992 in the Czech Republic. AVG Technologies acquired Exploit Prevention Labs (XPL) in December 2007, and incorporated that company's Link Scanner safe search and surf technology into the AVG 8.0 security product range released in March 2008.
