    @Hugh & ninuninu - It appears that AVG for Linux has changed quite a bit since I originally wrote this post. The download link was originally http://download.avg.com/filedir/inst/avg75fld-r51-a1243.i386.deb which no longer works. I'm sorry, I should have tried the new version before I updated the download link.

    The new version of AVG for Linux has no GUI. It does automatically register with a free license during installation. The executables are located in /opt/avg/avg8/bin.

    If you want a GUI based virus scanner for Ubuntu, I suggest you check out ClamTK. You can install it with:

    sudo apt-get install clamtk

    yeah, it just says:
    ~$ sudo /opt/grisoft/avggui/bin/avggui_update_licinfo.sh
    sudo: /opt/grisoft/avggui/bin/avggui_update_licinfo.sh: command not found

    I tried following the instruction on this page without success. The wget and installation seemed to work fine but there is /opt/grisoft/avggui/bin/avggui_update_licinfo.sh file.

    I got Cyberdefender antivirus software, and liked the free scanner and spyware remover that I bought the upgrade and it really saved my ass when I was near a deadline and it blocked a bunch of virus attacks I got from some websites.

    I did find out that they are a NASDAQ company, which means there is some accountability and that they sell a valid product. I will try the registry cleaner, since I had such a positive experience from Cyberdefender anti-virus.

      I haven't tried Cyberdefender, so I can't attest to the quality of the product. However, being listed on NASDAQ is no guarantee of a valid product. It only means they have sold shares in their company and NASDAQ has chosen to list them.

      There is no registry to clean on Ubuntu, so you only need that if you're on Windows.


      • I am new in AVG can be installed in ubuntu, thanks a lot tutorial. I will try to install on my ubuntu.
