AVG Free

Andy pointed out the other day that AVG would stop updating version 6 of their free AV product at the end of the year, but they had made version 7 available. I went to take a look at that over the weekend and discovered something that didn’t make me happy. Seems that their definition of “Home User” has changed and does not include anyone who might be running a server OS at home. Version 7 would not install on my server, even though I had been using version 6 on it just fine.

Then I took a look at the other free AV vendors and found that they all define Home user the same way.

Guess I’ll be adding an AV product to my Xmas list this year!
