Is AVG7 Free now including a firewall? Had a user install AVG7 and his Winsock LSP stack now contains avgfwafu.dll - which appears to be an AVG Firewall file.

About the same time, his IE stopped loading pages. I suspect it may be firewall related.

If AVG7 free *is* now installing a firewall.... Is there a way to disable the AVG firewall? Or a way to comfirm IE is allowed past the firewall?

It is likely that it is the AVG PLUS firewall; AVG free does not have one.

So most likely when I asked him to download and install the Free version of AVG, he instead installed the Trial version.

If that's the case, I'd like to know how (in the trial version) to disable AVG's firewall and/or be sure IE is allowed to pass.

There should be either a HELP file, or check the on-line documention. I have never used the Plus version.
Cheers,
