Pass this info to them if there's no notification from their existing AVG 7.1. Kindly tell them that v7.1 has no more support since Feb. 18, 2007 so they really need to upgrade to receive definitions update and other product update:

Update of AVG 7.1 to 7.5
Download the AVG 7.5 installation file from http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5
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
