    with same user name

    Windows Vista

  2. Anyone wish to compare AVG (which I've pretty much used exclusively) and SAV
    10.2 on an X64 machine?

  6. After installation of avg75free_441a944.exe, you will see, at the bottom
    of both the control center and test center windows, that it is version
    7.5.441. Why it says otherwise on the webpage, I'm not sure.

    Yeah, sure. Can't speak to the x64 aspect of it, but... I wouldn't use SAV
    on my personal PC's anymore. (I have one PC with a SAV subscription; when it
    expires, I'm going elsewhere. Same with my other PC currently running a
    McAffee subscription.) I'd go, probably, with Avast. And if Avast weren't
    available, then I'd go with AVG.

  9. So, they must have just been slow about changing it.
