    For those interested: here's a copy and paste from (the relevant part of) an email from Grisoft, announcing AVG Free edition will be available for all, regardless where they reside:


    Nice news for many (non-UK) European interested ones, looking for a freeware anti-virus  ;).

    Good news. :) Maybe they made it because the german edition of AVG is now sold under a different brand name (Databecker Anti Virus).

    I've just installed it on my machine (XPhome), no problem. I didn't give it many permissions though - I'm just going to use it as a back up secondary scanner. Norton is my main always on jobbie.
