You need to go back and read your popup. The message is to inform you to move to version 7.5 because 7.1 will no longer be supported. You can still get a free version of 7.5 and i've been using it for a few months now. Here's the link. It will tell you all you need to know.
AVG Anti Virus: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition
No need to find anything else. While you there, you might as well get the free adware removal program they have. It's a real treat and works just as good as Spybot and Ad-aware.
RTFM seems almost fitting at this point ^^; I feel like a noob now tanks Barronmore.
Well since the purpose of this thread was to advise everyone that AVG was no longer supporting updates for a free version, and that is no longer true, then it seems reasonable enough to close this.
If any of you have any further news on this same topic, then please PM me to reopen. Otherwise...
