This morning I received a comment from Claus Valca who has a great site with some of the latest information concerning AVG 8. On his site he has spoken with Karel Obluk from Grisoft who indicated the hope that all issues involving AVG should be corrected in service pack 1, when it is released. Claus also provides us with information referencing his thoughts on link scanners in general.

Ron,

Thanks for the kind words regarding my posts about AVG Free v8 and offering links to your readers to them.

I posted another one on Sunday you might be interested in.

Anyway regarding alternative link scanners.

I found a number of helpful links on this subject you might want to look over and consider adding in to this post:

Love your blog. I’ve added it to my daily RSS feed list.

Please check out what Claus has to say on his site. It is a good read.

As I have previously mentioned, if you have experienced problems with AVG 8, hang in there for awhile. Help is on the way. I personally believe that AVG is still one of the best software products on the market in protecting your PC from attacks. For those of you have were frustrated and were going to abandoned AVG altogether, the calvery is on the way to save the day. 🙂

Thanks to Claus for the information he has provided and also for the kind words. It is appreciated.

Comments welcome.
