ewido upgrade.

by caktus / January 30, 2007 5:53 AM PST

I am still using the free version of ewido v4.0. I understand that AVG has an upgrade to 7.5. Is it necessary to upgrade to the new version 7.5?

Just wondering if it's really necessary to switch from the old Ewido to the AVG Antispyware? Wondering if there is really any advantage.

improvements for one thing and I would assume the old one will get discontinued eventually and you will no longer be able to get updates then. May as well do it now instead of waiting until that happens.
