Download AVG 9 Antivirus Free Edition

Earlier this month AVG released version 9 of their popular antivirus. Today they have released a successor to their free antivirus series, AVG 9 Antivirus Free Edition. It replaces their AVG Free Antivirus version 8.5 and is much more speedier than all previous versions.

So what does it include? It has a build-in LinkScanner and Phishing Protection. Antivirus, AntiSpyware and some basic anti-rootkit protection. The whole User Interface is similar and hasn’t be altered much. The scan speed like it’s paid version(Pro version) has been increased up to 50% percent when compared with AVG 8.

The only problem I find is the AVG Safe Search add-on that is installed in Firefox with no option to uninstall it. Since I use WOT and other security toolbars having AVG Safe Search is entirely not needed. But otherwise having said that, AVG 9 Free is an excellent antivirus software considering that you are getting it for free. ;)

I am betting on Avast 5 Free Antivirus which is supposed to come out by end of this month, most probably after Windows 7 launch. Only then can I pit AVG 9 Free with Avast 5 Free and Microsoft Security Essentials to see which one performs better.

It works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Window 7. Enjoy!

      I have a couple of questions. One is how do I get the avg 9 free version? I can’t find the link all I get are forums like this or the one that you gotta pay for a 1,2, or 3 year subscribtion. Question 2: I keep reading here that everyone reverted back to avg 8.5 and no likes avg9, so what will happen then once they discontinue 8.5? I had an update on my pc saying that in Dec, 8.5 is will no longer be supported. I am worried about this because I use windows 2000 and my computer is too old to handle an xp ugrade and I still want to use the computer I have.

        yes the avg 8.5 was goino to close down but they decided it wasnt neccesary and kept it although there is versions of avg 8.5 that could cause problems or that has to be paid for so watch out for those and enjoy avg antiviruse.
