    I have the AVG-AS (Anti Spyware) and I am trying to find out when the free updates will end.

    I was told that the updates for AVG-AV 7.5 will end on 12/31/08.

    But what I am interested in is when will the free updates for the AVG-AS (Anti Spyware 7.5) STOP?
    I am still getting the updates for my AVG-AS 7.5 by opening AVG-AS and clicking on UPDATE.

    (I asked this question on another board and they told me I could get the manual updates from a website, but that didn't help me because I am still able to get the updates (for AVG-AS) by opening my AVG-AS and clicking on UPDATE. I wanted to know how long I will be able to continue to do this.)
    Can anyone help?

    Hello Alice,

    Well the support of AVG Anti-Spyware will end on the 31st of December 2008 too. Mostlikely the signature database updates will be stopped then too.

    Best Regards,

    I didn't want to deal with it so I uninstalled the AS and got something else. :p

    Thank you.
    Is there some place on the AVG site where we can see that it says that the AVG-Antispyware will end updating on 12/31/08 (just like the the AVG-AV)?
    Because if that is not the case, we will have to consider un-installing it and installing another program.

    P.S. I am not receiving e-mail alerts of these posts even though I checked instant mail notification.

    And when it comes to naming stuff, AVG Anti-Spyware was previously known as ewido anti-malware :)

    My apologies for the earlier off topic posts. When at Wilders reading, answering questions, etc., its easy to forget sometimes that I'm in a particular products support forum.
