ewido anti-spyware 4.0 Now AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5

One of the most popular tools used in the anti-malware community to help users clean their computers of trojans, worms, dialers, hijackers, spyware and keyloggers is ewido. When ewido became part of the Grisoft family, no one was sure what to expect.

As the leaves change colors in the autumn, so it appears is ewido changing. However, this change looks to be for the good. The first is a name change. The product is no longer known as ewido anti-spyware. The announced name change is AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5.

ewido anti-spyware 4.0 will now continue under the new product name AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5. AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 contains the same ewido technology, but with some further enhanced features:

Highly improved cleaning
Lower resource usage
Additional languages supported

All current licenses for ewido anti-spyware 4.0 will continue to be valid, and users can change over to the new AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 for free.
