Hi

I see AVG/Griftsoft have started charging for AVG and no longer
hosting a FREE version (in AVG v8).
However there are still various places hosting version the previous
version (v7.5)  which was free.

Is there a good reason for NOT using AVG FREE?

I have been using AVG free for a couple of years now without any
infection, and it seems fine to me.
(Better than Norton, which had a patch c.5 years ago which crippled my
PC for about 48 hours before the brought out a new patch - losing me
two working days... and I still havent forgiven them.)
I have also tried McAfee which seemed ok-ish and some Russian thing
whos name escapes me.
I think they ALL rather slow down the computer, which is irritating.

Any thoughts?
With thanks
