AVG Free 8.5 Expires on December 1st 2009

In an attempt to curb the multiple scare stories around AVG withdrawing their popular Free Anti-Virus software that usually emerge around the time of these upgrades, here’s a heads-up that version 8.5 of the popular free AVG Anti-Virus will be expiring on December 1st only to be replaced with a free edition of the latest version, v9.

After December 1st, v8.5 or below of the software will still run, but will not update it’s virus definitions leaving you at risk of infection by new viruses, and you’ll be “nagged” by a pop-up asking you to upgrade to AVG version 9.

Clicking the nag pop-up will take you to a web-page where you’re encouraged to buy the full version of AVG Anti-Virus (which may not be a bad thing, as the full version includes a ton of features the free version does not) – but if you’re happy with the free version, then good news – a free edition of version 9 is also available. Look at the smaller print at the bottom of the page to find a link to upgrade (see screenshot right).

Alternatively, you can visit this link directly to download v9 of AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition.

AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition is totally free for non-Commercial use. That means if you’re a small business, you’re breaking the terms of the license agreement by using it – you should contact a reputable AVG reseller for a low-cost upgrade to a Commercial Edition which will protect your business. Trust me when I say it’s worth it!

If you’re a home user and don’t have an Anti-Virus solution in place – then what are you waiting for? Go and download AVG Anti-Virus Free v9.0 straight away!
