Installing and Configuring AVG Free


Jump to: navigation, search

RPOWER recommends the use of a current anti-virus software running on all workstations within a site network. The below documentation describes how to install an anti-virus program providing the greatest amount of protection without compromising the speed or functionality of your RPOWER system.

The settings depicted are catered specifically to a typical RPOWER network and may not include the entire scope of the anti-virus or malware protection settings for installed location as each site utilizes its own unique software tools. Also refer to Configuring Windows Firewall for specific guidelines on installing these products with your RPOWER network in mind.
