Default need another antivirus protection

I have AVG antivirus and the free part is going to be not updated anymore. I have a message that keeps popping up, saying that I must update to the new AVG 8.5 and I would have to pay for that. Is there anything else that would be good and yet free still? Or would we have to pay for it?

I'm using Avast which is free although you must register it.

interesting, because for some reason, it seemed to want me to pay after a while. and I've had it free for a long time.

Well, they always want you to pay. The question is do they require it. And if so, when. It's odd, that's what it is...

eta: I wonder if Night Owl has a different version. I notice that the version you have, Holly, is AVG 7.5. off to Google...

Ok, I was right. The info is here. They are no longer supporting AVG 7.5 and you must upgrade to AVG 8.5. Why didn't they just say so in the first place?

Linda, that's why I deleted it and got the Avast, that you recommended. It even talks to me sometimes, saying, that "the anivirus has been updated."

Isn't that a crack up? Anyway, now you know why Michelle didn't have to pay for her version.

Your avast registration will expire after a year, it's not difficult to go and get a new registration number, I just wanted to let you know to expect it =D

I'm going to recommend Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware. It, too, is free, and sometimes it picks up things that my paid AVG misses. The only thing is that you'll probably have to update it "manually", and it won't run automatically. It can be purchased as well.

I had Avast on my laptop, and found it used a lot of resources when it ran, so I ended up uninstalling it.
