    OK, I got an invitation to test AVG 7.5 beta. No link, no password. Now I got this in my inbox(gmail). Is this a joke about 7.5 beta?

    I also received an invitation to join, but it seems they are only asking for volunteers to join the beta. The 7.5 beta is not yet ready for testing, I think. According to the invitation e-mail, the beta will start at the end of August. Maybe next week or so...

    I was able to login to the Beta site and test it. They had sent me a registration code to use when installing 7.5.

    Just so you know though, It's not remarkable. The GUI is basically the same except for a few new "cleaner" graphics and I don't see any huge new features.

    I got about 20 messages in my inbox too, it was annoying.

    you can un-subscribe to these mails..there must be an e-mail which gives an e-mail address to un-subscribe to this non-sense....by sending a blank e-mail to :avg-beta-en-unsubscribe@lists.grisoft.cz
    You can however still try the beta at beta.grisoft.cz...
    Due to that bitdefender10,i was busy yesterday re-installing windows twice!!!
    Plz,do post some screenshots..

    Thanks for the screenshots...

    A little strange for the small windows in the security status. The status located at the bottom of each small window is truncated...

    Still for the mail to download the beta...

    It does look strange - click on the end of each window and it displays the remainder of the sentence.

    It has no complete auto updates, it just has a scheduled task to checking for update once a day.
    KAV,NOD32 and many others have a fully automatic updates.
    I hope now you understand what I mean:)

    You can schedule 10 updates a day if you wish.Though twice a day is usually ample for AVG.

    AVG 7.5 as I can see has a "lisence" well, when this expires, do we get any more trial without paying? It's still payware, right?

    The 7.5 beta testing is a closed beta and is not available to the public this time. Maybe you can apply for a membership at the AVG beta site:

    http://www.grisoft.com/doc/29571/lng/us

    After you get your membership, send an e-mail to the beta manager as indicated in the AVG 7.5 information posted at the beta site. Not sure if they are still accepting new beta testers. Under the 7.5 beta non-disclosure agreement, beta testers are not allowed to post the direct download link in the public.
