I don't think AVG 8.0 overwrites 7.5 however if you install 8.0 then remove 7.5 because they can lead to conflicts. You should only have 1 anti-virus program installed and running.
Does AVG 8 overwrite 7.5

They are not quite similar. AVG 8.0 has a new anti-spyware function added and resident shield as well as E-mail scanner that AVG 7.5 doesn't. I was going to go back to AVG 7.5 until I found out that the false positives and everything is gone.
Are both versions similar in the way they work!!?,
My suggustion is first download AVG 8.0 if you are going to install it, then use add/remove to uninstall AVG 7.5. Once you have done that then install AVG 8.0. My reason is for that is because without a Anti-virus program installed you can get infected easily espically if your connected to the internet. My steps will be as follow:
I was wondering if its safe to uninstall 7.5 1st then install 8.

I don't think there is an option to not install e-mail scanner you have to install everything. However you can disable E-mail scanner by going to services.msc. The annoying thing is you will always see AVG has an ! sign saying that e-mail scanner is not active. If you don't mind that then I'll tell you how to disable the e-mail scanner:
Can i opt during installation, not to have email scanner in version 8 as i'm sure this will conflict to!
Which anti-spyware can you tell me the name of that anti-spyware
Will the anti spyware conflict with any of my programmes also??

I don't know how you will uninstall the e-mail scanner because it is part of the WHOLE installation of AVG. The !
Will the email scanner uninstalation permanently disable the scanner?, what is the ! that will appear?

Yes it will disable it permnantly you do not need to do it each time you boot up. It just stays there, however;if you wish to enable it for some reason you can go to services.msc again and change the Startup type back to automatic and change the service status to Start and everything will be back to normal.
Will the instructions you gave me to go to 'run' & "services.msc" disable email scanner permanently, or will i need to do this each time i boot my pc!
