AVG announces AVG Anti-Virus free edition 8.0
AVG (AU/NZ) Pty Ltd, the Australasian distributor of AVG Anti-Virus and Internet Security software, has announced the availability of AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 8.0. This latest version of the company’s popular free security software now incorporates protection against spyware through a new combined anti-virus and anti-spyware engine.

AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 8.0 provides basic protection against viruses and spyware, together with the real-time safe-searching protection of the company’s LinkScanner technology, incorporated into the new AVG Security Toolbar.

The company released the 8.0 versions of its commercial products in February 2008. Home users can choose between the AVG Internet Security suite, AVG Anti-Virus or AVG Anti-Virus plus Firewall products. Business users can select Network Edition or SBS Edition versions of the AVG Anti-Virus and AVG Internet Security products.

AVG File Server Edition 8.0 and AVG E-Mail Server Edition 8.0 server protection products are also available.

AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 8.0 is intended for personal and non-commercial use on single computers running Windows 2000, XP or Vista. The product will be released initially in English, with Japanese following next week; other language versions are planned for release over the next few months. While AVG Technologies does not provide telephone or e-mail support for AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 8.0, the company hosts a web site and forum for user-driven support which can be accessed via www.avgfree.com.au. Interested users can download the software from this web site, or at third-party download sites such as CNet Download.com.

The AVG Free product does not include the proactive safe-surfing ("drive-by download" protection) of the full LinkScanner module that is included in the commercial AVG products, nor the protection against hackers, keyloggers, spam, phishing attacks and malicious file downloads that can come through instant messaging and attachments.

The free product also does not include the local telephone support and round-the-clock e-mail support provided with the commercial products.
