i have unused boxed versions of AVG antivirus/antispyware 8.0 and AVG antivirus 2012.


As far as the 2012 goes, I know I can install it but does AVG allow you to upgrade to the current version while under valid subscription?  If so, would i install 2012 and then upgrade or would i install the latest version and use the 2012 key?  


Is the 8.0 a lost cause (for XP and Vista) at this point or can I use the key with a more current version?
