AVG Free 2013 and Link Scanner 2013 mix up
by Peternosmas - 11/3/12 4:55 PM
Having used AVG free versions for many years, on 07/09/12 I downloaded and installed what I thought was AVG AntiVirus Free 2013 but then discovered I had installed a 30 day trial of the paid for version. The downloaded file was named avg_free_stb_all_2013_2667_cnet.exe
Following a spell in hospital the trial version licence had expired, so on my return home I downloaded avg_free_stb_all_2013_2742_cnet.exe
and installed it on 27/10/12. This was the previously hoped for AVG Free 2013, but I then found it was lacking the Link Scanner component that had been a feature of AVG Free 2012. On Google I found that Link Scanner is now a stand alone program, so tonight I downloaded the CNET link for AVG LinkScanner Free Edition 2013 (avg_free_smf_stb_all_2013_2742_cnet.exe)
However I have now lost the AVG antivirus program - all references to AVG now only display the Link Scanner ui. Can someone please explain exactly what is going on and how do I install BOTH the Antivirus AND Link Scanner programs on my system?
