  • 10 January, 2007 11:23

<p>Time extended to upgrade to AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5 and other updated AVG Internet Security products</p>
<p>Avalanche Technology Group, the Australasian distributor of GRISOFT’s AVG security software, today announced the extension of user product support for AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.1 to February 18, 2007. Product support for users of version 7.1 had been scheduled to expire on January 15. This change will provide additional time for users to upgrade to AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5 or other AVG products. AVG Free 7.5 provides all the benefits of the previous version, but also offers better virus protection and improves ease-of-use for users.</p>
<p>With version 7.5, users receive improved virus detection based on better heuristics and NTFS data streams scanning, smaller update files and improved user interface. Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5 is also Windows Vista-ready and is available via Windows Security Center as a security solution. To upgrade to AVG Free 7.5, users can visit www.avgfree.com.au</p>
<p>“As we have millions of satisfied users who enjoy using our free anti-virus software, we continue to offer the free version 7.1, which has been updated in our AVG 7.5 security product portfolio,” said Larry Bridwell, Global Security Strategist for AVG. “We’ve extended user support so that they can continue receiving daily computer threat updates as they transition to our improved Anti-Virus Free Edition or take advantage of the additional benefits with our commercial AVG products that protect against a broader range of computer threats.”</p>
<p>GRISOFT’s AVG 7.5 security portfolio offers users several commercial security products with advanced benefits not included in the free editions. The AVG commercial products offer more security with a variety of options including additional anti-spam and firewall programs, as well as tools to detect and prevent identity theft attempts, bundled into one package such as the new AVG Internet Security 7.5.</p>
<p>The commercial AVG products also offer professional technical support, high-speed updates and customisable settings. Users can upgrade to the AVG commercial security products at www.avalanche.com.au</p>
<p>All AVG products have reliable and frequent automatic updates, low level use of computer resources, and unified and easy-to-use interface.</p>
