    AVG Version 7

    Good morning and Happy New Year to all!

    Is AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition version 7 better than version 6 - any problems encountered to suggest we stay with version 6?

    Many thanks,
    Curious

    You have <big>no alternative</big> to AVG v7, if you want to have continuing virus pattern updates.

    No more virus pattern updates are being produced for v6 after 31 Dec 2004... *** see PPS

    PS Having installed it this afternoon on an agonisingly slow Windows 95 box (32 MB should be enough for anyone...), I can report that AVG v7 wanted me to download and install DCOM95 before it would install, itself...

    PPS Later... Having just looked at the Grisoft website, it seems that they will continue to supply pattern updates for AVG v6 until the end of January 2005, but no fixes to the main virus-detection engine will take place as from 31 December 2004...
