With the new paid version of AVG (Version 8.0), I'm sure any users of 7.5 Free have noticed the banner-type ads in the control panel(s) when you open AVG 7.5 Free now. That's not *that* big a deal, but what I'm more concerned about is that for the last two days, the first time I check for updates on each day, it causes Firefox to automatically open up and go to an ad page at Grisoft about 8.0.
Is there any way to avoid this -- or is it going to do this every day for now on since they want people to get the paid 8.0 version?
(I love AVG 7.5 Free, I just don't like the idea of a program automatically opening up my web browser and going to a web page without my say-so...)
Any thoughts/help is appreciated -- thanks!
