Enabling and Disabling Components

Nearly all the shields and tools available in AVG Business Antivirus can be enabled or disabled in the policy. This is especially useful if you are trying to install only a few of the components on a server, or just keeping your number of tools to a minimum. Some tools, however, can only be installed or uninstalled entirely.

  1. In the policy you are configuring, select the Active Protection tab
  2. Select the relevant OS tab (Windows Workstation, Windows Server)
  3. Beside the components you want to alter, do one of the following:
    • To enable the component, move the slider to On
    • To disable the component, move the slider to Off

Installing and Uninstalling Components

Most Active Protection features are installed with AVG Business Antivirus, but these components can be uninstalled and reinstalled as needed via the policy.

  2. Select the relevant OS tab (Windows Workstation, Windows Server)
  3. Beside the components you want to alter, do one of the following:
