I know that a lot of you are using AVG free version 6.
It is being withdrawn from the end of this month (or maybe next -

the software, just download & the reg code is in there. They do
encourage you to register, and if you do, you get access to their
One thing that you might want to remember is that by default it's set
to add a "This email is certified virus free" on the end of your
message - but some email clients add that as an attachment, rather
than embed it as a footer, which can lead to concerns for others.

it leaves, I have no control over what it collects enroute.
