But do not worry internet traveler for they are releasing AVG Free 8.0. It will still help protect you against viruses and spyware but the free version won't be doing the extra stuff like stopping targeted hacker attacks and blocking phishing and email scams. Their words not mine.
Of course most of these extras you can do on your own with a little net commonsense. Virus and security suites are useless if you surcomvent them yourself and do the hackers job for them.
So remember! Don't open attachments. Visit only trusted internet sites and don't install plug-ins on websites. And always keep your operating system updated.
