Probably stupid question time, but...
I'm going to be getting a new replacement laptop and installing AVG anti-virus Free once again. I still have the old .exe installation file called avg75free_432a904.exe,
which is 17.4 megs
I see that the newest version is avg75free_476a1048.exe
, and is 22megs
When I check what version of the program I currently have installed, it says 7.5.476
, which seems to match the new installation .exe, right?
I couldn't remember if I had seen anything about the new installation of AVG having stuff in it that's turned off or that it's problematic vs. older versions. But I'm guessing
that I started off with 7.5.432
and did the various updates over the past x-number of months, which brought it up to 7.5.476
, which is the newest version available for download. Does that sound right?
So is there any reason to *not* just download the newest avg75free_476a1048.exe
and install that, as compared to installing my old avg75free_432a904.exe
and updating it through the program itself?
(I'm guessing I should probably just download the newest version installation .exe, but I wanted to be sure there wasn't something in the newest version that would make using my old installation .exe and updating that better for some reason...)
