After a short beta test, AVG have released a new version of their anti-virus product, here is an excerpt from their press release:
- A significant addition to the AVG security software portfolio, AVG Internet Security 7.5, includes the most recent anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-spam and firewall technologies with reliable automatic updates while consuming a low level of computer resources for convenient use. In the AVG Internet Security Network Edition, Gristosft offers centralized remote administration, which allows for remote installation, updating and management of all workstations and servers.
Grisoft's existing portfolio for home, small and medium business users is now expanded to include AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 and AVG Anti-Malware 7.5 products. AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 offers protection against Trojans, spyware, adware, dialers, keyloggers and worms. The AVG Anti-Malware program combines the latest anti-spyware and antivirus technologies within a single, easy-to-use interface.
I couldn't actually find a changelog between 7.0 and 7.5 but as the above press release indicates they have released six new versions of AVG Anti-virus bringing it up to fifteen different varieties of product so if Vista product versions have you confused you better sit down.
I installed 7.5 Professional as I bought a licence as a fallback for Symantec making Norton more horrible than the previous incarnation, I just snapped. The interface in 7.5 is slightly different and has joined the 21st century, I haven't checked it out with Windows Vista yet (5728 will be checked) so will update this post with its progress as the 7.0 updater had issues with Vista, although seems to be fine if UAC is not active.
There is no estimated release date for the free version at the moment.
