MILLBURN, N.J. -- GRISOFT, the developer of AVG security software, today announced the extension of user product support for AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.1 through February 18, 2007. Product support for users of version 7.1 had been scheduled to expire on January 15th. This change will provide additional time for users to upgrade to AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5 or other AVG products. The Free Version 7.5 provides all the benefits of the previous version, but also offers better virus protection and improves ease-of-use for users.
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.
