Password Protection

I know little bit about this problem if you have to set password for the installation you must be logged in your computer as Administration and make any user account as limited account no any one can install any type of software in your computer whenever they not log in as administration.

Hello grlinks,

I'm afraid that it is not possible to prevent other administrator from changing AVG configuration or running AVG setup with AVG Free. You could try using limited user account for him and elevate the needed rights/change permissions for specific files (because of the Wamp server) only.
Commercial versions of AVG contain AVG Remote Administration which can be used for limiting users from changing AVG configuration. More information can be found here:

Thank you.

Hi, Whatever you do, DO NOT BUY AVG 9.0. I purchased it for 2 years and after a few month it stopped working and interfered with other programs. I have spent over 50 hours with their technicians over several month and once fixed it breaks down again after a few days. They also refuse to refund any money after 30 days. I've removed it from my computer a few month ago and ever since have had no problems. AGAIN, DON'T BUY.
