My uncle needs a firewall/antivi. I downloaded AVG, but couldn't find system requirements anywhere on there website (how typical)! I checked the file's property sheet for info, but only got a version number.

So I'm not sure if I've got a Mac version, a Windows 7 version, or what.
I started out at which sent me to

Does anyone know where I can find a copy of the release notes or a webpage with the current system requirments.

A similar "problem" at there's a "free download" button, but there is no indication which version, or what platform, so if I'm wanting to download for XP, from a W7 computer, I'm not sure what I'm getting. All I see on the property sheet is Checkpint Install Utility, without mention of any system requirments.
