Upset for the right reasons?

It amuses me that AVG get pilloried for actually GASP wanting some actual INCOME for their work. How dare they! Heresy! If that is why you're upset you're just a freeloader.

But, I would agree with anyone who is annoyed because they chose the "we will now grab all your data because we can" route instead of just discontinuing the free version, because that's actually not even legally possible unless they include a separate tick box that states so explicitly (given the likelihood that search histories will contain data classed as "sensitive"), and at that point I too would say "f*ck you AVG", if not for one small point:

I stopped using Windows long ago :).
