    I was thinking about purchasing it, but then i noticed that it is based on a subscription term(1 year), just like most of the others, which i think is complete bullshit. Is there any good AV's out there that don't require a yearly subscription? or another freeware comparable to AVG?

    It will still be free.

    If you currently have the free version of 7.1 update to the free 7.5.
     
  4. I get McAfee for free because I use comcast. That works great for me.

    I would use clam AV because it being free software I for some reason can't imagine anything like this happening with it.

    I have 7.1.409, so you're saying if i upgrade to 7.5 it will still be free? I got a message upon updating today that said "AVG Free" will no longer exist in 2007 :dunno:
