I have been using AVG as my Anti-Virus software and they are say they are stopping their free service, although I still seem to be getting my daily updates?

Can someone suggest another free service?

They stopped support for the version that you are using. Go to their website and download the 7.5 version.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

When you download the new version select the "Repair" instead of "Install". This will install the new version without having to uninstall the old version first.

Run the AVG Free Edition 7.5 Setup program.
Click "Next >" on the AVG "Welcome!" screen.
Click "Accept" on the "License Agreement on Use of an AVG Free Edition" screen.
Select "Repair installation" on the "Select Setup Type" screen and click "Next >".
Select "Restart the computer now" (pre-selected by the program automatically) and click "OK" on the "Installation Complete!" screen to restart your computer and complete the installation.
