by on October 23, 2006 · 11 comments· LAST UPDATED October 23, 2006


If you use Windows emulators such as Win4Lin or other programs under Linux to run popular windows application, you must use Anti virus to avoid problems.

AVG Anti-Virus is free software for private, non-commercial, single home computer use only. Latest version 7.1.30 runs on Linux :)

This anti-Virus software used by millions of users, has introduced a new free version of its software specifically for the Linux desktop.

Sure Linux popularity is growing everyday. It is only a matter of time before the Linux operating system becomes more widely targeted by virus and malware writers. So getting a software protection is must.

Main fetures of software

  • Easy to use
  • Regular and automatic virus database updates
  • Realtime protection of files and e-mails
  • Scheduled and manual testing etc

However this software only runs on selected Linux distro [ no support for Debian or Ubuntu Linux :( ] :-

  • Mandriva Linux
  • RedHat/Fedora Linux
  • Suse Linux etc

It looks like a nice interface. For other Linux users, like Ubuntu, there is Avast antivirus from The home edition is free and unlike other free antiviruses, it includes a realtime scanner on open files and running executables. There is also a Windows version available which I used on Vista. Although they require a registration key, it is free for non-commercial use. The non-free commercial version differs mostly in extra administrator tools.

AVG 7.5 can`t be downloaded via AVG`s site longer.

Looks for people`s backup copies of AVG 7.5 for Linux.
