Pop ups? Hmmmmmmm, I never got any pop ups, are you downloading the correct version? There's a version which is a 'trial version' and it would continually ask you to purchase, but, the free version shouldn't have any pop ups. Hmmmmmm.

AmdWolfMan If you've had your avg for a year you get a pop-up asking if you want to download the full version $39.95 or if the version you're using is expired/no longer updated.

Still free. This is the newest one.

I had a pop-up when AVG updated yesterday. It just advertised their new Internet Security 8.0 package. It only happened once too. No reason to change. It's all good.

Pay for Symantec endpoint, it's the best investment to make.

AVG is a pretty good free anti-virus for what it does. Which isn't much. If you want a real anti-virus with real time protection, you can get one for like $20. Spend the money. You'll be better off.

Any of the name brand ones Kaspersky, BitDefender, Norton, etc... can be found on sale. Usually last years version can be found for next to nothing. Just keep an eye on flyers and clearance shelves in stores. There are also mail in rebates where you can sometimes get them for free.

what do you mean by too much security? like more than one kind of anti virus software, or anti-spyware ect..? My AVG has not asked me to pay for it in years, and no problems on this computer and I do visit porn sites /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif I use AVG for viruses, Windows Defender (not Beta) on Vista for spyware and a router instead of a firewall

If you mean by "too much security" having more than one antivirus program installd and running, then the answer is yes, you can. You should only have one antivirus program loaded and running on your computer at any time. They don't play well together if you have multiples loaded.
I've been using AVG Free edition for years and have had no issues what so ever. I also use Ad-Aware to take care of any potential spyware I may pick up too. I just run a scan with Ad-Aware every week or so, and run a full virus scan every month, and my computers run just fine.
