AVG Free Edition has gone to 8.0.1 has anyone upgraded yet if so have they found any problems.
One thing I did notice on there forum was to unload 7.5 first, it doesn't tell you to do this if you go straight to the download site.
My mate has upgraded, and has had no end of problems... Don't know the reason for sure, it could be PEBCAK or software, or both...!!!
I had problems initially, but an uninstall and re-install seemed to solve it.
Been using 8 for a little while now, it uses a bit more ram, and feels a little slower... but it's ok, I'm happy with it so far.
..and I like the UI more than 7.5, especially now I've disabled that silly dropdown notification box under the main window.
The only thing I can see is the tab at the bottom that says hide notification, it does that OK but every time you open up AVG its there again, I don't know of a permanent way of disabling it.
Yep, that silly little dropdown notification box is always open every time you open AVG8...
Unless you go into the folder where you installed AVG8 and rename two files:
avgresf.dll > avgresf.dll.bak
avgmwdef_us.mht > avgmwdef_us.mht.bak
..and it's gone, much nicer too. (best exiting AVG while you rename them)
thank you D m Wright that works a treat for me / jmb
