    AVG antivirus

    I have always received quick and accurate answers from Woody's watch - so here's another!

    Is avg antivirus communicating that there is an upgrade available?

    Reason for asking? I checked on anti viruse updates and the next day received notice that there was a full avg update. I want to check and ensure that it is not a phishing scam.

    If you are still using version 6.0 then yes, you should update to AVG's new 7.0 version as their 6.0 will no longer be served up any definition files after the 1st of the year.
    Version 7.0.296 is the latest version.

    You didn't say HOW you checked, but you should take a look here at Grisoft to be sure. (I get a US web page automatically, so I don't know if there's something closer to home for you. I also found this link by browsing the site map at the above web page.)

    WOW - as usual with Woody's that was quick.

    Thanks the pair of you - it certainly looks as if the AVG thingy I received is 100%. But perhaps they should have put out a warning email before the one I received.

    Thanks again.

    Evidently Bob and I were both sitting with our fingers poised over the keyboard at the same moment. <img src=/S/anigrin.gif border=0 alt=anigrin width=19 height=19> One of the convenience factors of Woody's Lounge, because of our "international" makeup, there's always someone "on-duty" waiting to help.
