Like most software companies, AVG are no different in repacking and re-releasing essentially the same product under the hood every 6 months to a year. Of course the new versions of AVG have more features, fancier menus and things they can do, but does that equate to actually meaning they can protect you any better. I'm not so sure. By having the latest virus and trojan definitions running with AVG 7.5, unless there is an explicit flaw in the coding of 7.5 that is being taken advantage of, a virus scanner simply scans whats in memory and what's on your media. Thus my protection should be as good now as it was when 7.5 was being used more freely.
