AVG Antivirus is one of the most popular antivirus programs on the market. When you go to download the software from the AVG website, you have a choice between a free version and a paid version which comes with some extra bells and whistles.
Many users opt to download the trial version of AVG Internet Security, then decide to switch to the free version when the trial period ends. This is fine (it is actually what I recommend), but that means uninstalling the trial version and then installing the free version from scratch.
But now there’s a better way to “downgrade” from AVG Internet Security to AVG Free. Simply download the AVG Downgrader utility from the AVG website and run it. The fast and simple process explained below will make the conversion for you without having to jump through a bunch od complicated hoops. Just follow these directions:
1 – Visit the Tools section of the AVG website.
2 – Make sure the General tab is active (this should be the default tab), then click the AVG Downgrader link to download and install the utility.
3 – Run AVG Downloader and follow the simple instructions provided.
4 – When prompted, reboot your PC.
Your computer should now be running the free version of AVG Antivirus.
