Starting Tuesday, v3.co.uk is going to run a promotion allowing users to get AVG AntiVirus 9 (1 year, 1 PC license) for free. Here is the official word  from them:
We hinted at a big 31st of August promotion in July and, we can safely say, this promotion has taken over 8 months to negotiate, arrange and finalise. It’s that important. We’re proud to be able to announce that, between midday CET (central European time) 31st August to midday CET 1st of September, we’re giving you the full current version of AVG Anti-Virus 9 [1-PC, 1-Year], worth £26.99, FREE for everyone to download.
If you’re been using the popular AVG Anti-Virus Free for a while and wondered why you should upgrade to the commercial edition, now is your chance. The difference between the Free and the commercial edition, worth £26.99, includes advanced root-kit protection, a game mode so you can remain safe, without affecting your gameplay, phishing protection and more.
According to v3.co.uk, this freebie is available for everyone but they have a limited amount of licenses to giveaway:
Note, that although we have many thousands of AVG AntiVirus 9 [1-PC, 1-Year] codes to giveaway for free, and everyone can get a code, if the codes expire early, the giveaway promotion will also end early.
So be vigilant in taking advantage of this freebie if you want it.
The giveaway has not started yet – it will start 3 AM PST Tuesday August 31, 2010 and end 3 AM PST Wednesday September 1, 2010 – so I don’t have much details on it right now. However, I thought I should give everyone the heads up in advance. Be sure to visit store.v3.co.uk  on Tuesday!
