AVG Antivirus RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has anyone installed AVG Antivirus v.8 on a WHS?
    I have the McAfee Trial now but it won't make scans, just says server is too busy.

    Should I RDP to the server to install AVG by the way??

  • As far as I know, AVG doesn't have a version of their software specifically for Windows Home Server. The general rule of thumb is that you should only use an AV product that is designed for use with WHS, because otherwise it may perceive normal operation of the server as virus activity, and quarantine or delete essential WHS files.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Ok thanks, I went on with Avast instead - seems fine so far!
