We've used the paid versions of AVG 7.5 for several years and I recently took them up on the 8.0 revision for paid versions. I've had nothing but trouble since then. Reportedly, lots of folks have had similar experiences to mine, which include computer scans that last three and four hours, computer still performing extremely slowly after scans finish, sometimes scans going on and on hung up on the same file, etc. Grisoft's still trying to figure out what's happening. I've had to perform repeated diagnostic scans and send the results to their tech department. So far, all they've solved is eliminating the slowdown of computer operations after scans complete. I had to shut the computer down and restart to get it working more or less properly after scans until yesterday. If you're using 7.5 now, I wouldn't update to 8.0 any time soon.

updates are automatic still. It doesn't even pop up the window to let
you know about it now - completely in the background. I've had it on
there for a week or so now and so far I like it better than the old
