I was in France at a Hotspot when AVG sent a message that 7.5 version was ending so I dowloaded AVG 8.0 free version.
Initially I was concerned when ever I used the laptop as the new version icon always had a red exclammation to say it was in an error state!!
I was used to the 7.5 version usually lasting a few days before it said it was out of date. the 8.0 version seems to say its out of date if it can't immediately access the internet.
I guess it is just getting used to its new ways!
Funnily enough since coming home my old laptop, also uses windows XP, is still on 7.5 version and I haven't received any message to update to the 8.0 version, and it appears to be having updates. Guess I will leave it as it is on the old laptop until I have to update.
I have mostly done my updates manually since installing the 8.0 version. This is mainly because being abroad by the time I have got onto the internet the AVG has already said connection to the update failed, this I thought was because it was seeking the internet before I had actually got onto it.
