I use AVG Free on my Windows XP virtual machine. I installed 3 Windows XP the past 2 days and I am damn familiar with installing antivirus software AVG after a while. I always customize my installations and AVG forces me to install AVG Safe Search and there is no option to opt out. It’s unfortunate that AVG seem to be more and more reluctant to offer transparent software.

AVG Safe Search not working in Firefox 3

Yes, I use Firefox 3, but at least I should be able to uninstall a plugin that I don’t want right? Stopping malicious links should be browser’s job anyway.

On a side note, it is harder to find AVG Free these days as compare to a year ago. Kinda reminds me of Real Player back then where they keep putting their free player in the most obsure location. I rather go exploring new lands on Earth than find that bloody button.

Gridsoft appears to follow suit and hide the link of AVG Free. They offer AVG Internet Security for download but there it doesn’t tell you that you have to pay till you reach this checkout page. AVG Free is still no where to be found in the homepage it appears.

So where can you get AVG Free then?
