I use AVG Free for home use only. If you want to use AVG for business use, pay for it.

Excellent product but can be a bit too technical for the basic home user to tinker with.

Subject: [PCTECH] AVG Free - suitable for workstations at work?

BTW, If you were asking if "AVG FREE" was suitable for work - NO.

The free AVs are for home users only. Businesses, charities and schools
have to pay. Some companies (AVG does) have discount programs for
charities and schools.

Jeff,

I am an AVG Reseller and have been using the Network Edition for my
customers for years. This has an administration center that allows you
to control the AVG clients as well as get reports on them.

AVG is moving to what they call CloudCare. Same principal but instead of
running the admin on your own hardware AVG hosts it. One change they
made in the move to the cloud is that there anti-spam product no longer
runs on the PCs. You have to point you DNS MX entry to their servers and
then either pickup the email from there or have it forwarded on to your
own servers after being filtered.

We currently use a paid AV (ESET) for all workstations and servers. A
couple of workstations are experiencing issues.

The issue is not the AV software or viruses, but this AV software requires
a monitoring piece of software that intermittently causes performance
problems.

I've used AVG Free at home for years with nary an issue. Is it suitable
for using at work (workstations only, not servers)? Anyone actually doing
that?

Thanks.
