I’m always searching for an anti-virus program that can be applied on more than one device, because I not only have 3 PCs, but also have a media server and a WHS. AVG is the one. Though the instructions are complex, the actual operation is easy and handy. I use remote administration (avg_rad) piece on media server and end PC piece (avg_ipw) on my computers. There are 32bit and 64bit versions for you to choose, make the right selection according to your cases.I can view each computer’s status and control them from remote administration desktop. According to the instruction, if I want to update my computers, I can do it from local server, without referring to AVG. But it may be a little complicated as the manual describes, so I haven’t tried it yet. Theoretically, it can work independently on multiple computers without the server piece, but it failed in my case and I don’t know why. I can’t give too many tech reviews on the software, so far, it has done a good job and I’ve been an old user of AVG products. Except for some little widgets, I haven’t been bothered by any bloat. Once I closed those widgets, they never appear again. So no bother from bloat for me actually. All in all, it’s worth buying.
AVG AntiVirus Business Edition can work/update well on server and each computer separately. However, when I initially intended to install it on server and centrally control all computers for my business, it is too difficult for me to handle, so I turned to an IT man for help. What’s worse, after the program is set up, I found everything is largely slowed down with the central control function, so I had to give up central control and manage it separately. Now everything goes well.
