You did not mention the version of AVG. If downloading AVG 6 Free, I see no problem with the procedure. I am unfamiliar with AVG 7 (paid version) procedures and requirements.
I must say AVG 6 Free is installed on my computer and works great. Maybe your friend will be satisfied with this version.
Best of luck,
you can use same on free it wont matter serials the same on free
What my experiment showed
I downloaded AVG 6 to this computer twice using different names, mail addresses and Email addresses.
The serial numbers I received to be used during the install were different which caused me to wonder if the AVG program was somehow tied to a particular person or email address and thus would not be transportable to a different persons computer---
Re:What my experiment showed
well all i know is i work in a computer shop, i have avg burnt on a cd, i use same serial #s on all never stops me and the clients happy
AVG Free edition - License agreement
An extract from the AVF Free Edition License agreement you agreed to before downloading the copy you burned to CD:
2. You may install and use only one copy of the Software for single home or non-commercial organization computer protection only, irrespective of the number of times you download the Software or the number of licenses you purport to accept.
3. You may not use the Software on a network or more than one PC.
Your doings clearly contradict this agreement. Decent computer shops shouldn't do such, in my opinion. A decent computer shop should offer its clients the choice of (a) paying for a licence for AVG 7.0 (or any other reputable anti-virus program) or (b) downloading and installing free AVG or Avast themselves. It isn't that difficult, is it?
Do you install Windows XP the same way?
Re:AVG Free edition - License agreement
and a Decent shop will put on a free copy, only an Indecent one wouldn't, what shop would you rather use?
and if i put the persons email Addy in setup wheres the problem?
or are you working for avg?
and its better we put an anti virus on puter or would you rather leave unprotected?
as ms has changed opinion Ive seen as to updates for pirated xp?
and as to xp i sell legal copy's and install all critical updates on the system i sell including avg free with there email Addy.
and as to serial numbers Ive used same and if it wasn't the right one why does it work on a new install in peoples homes?
so please dont be so jealous and like some :copy righted issues youve had with others"
I made a disc and installed it on 2 different laptops using the same s/n it works.
Thanks to all for the inputs.
My friend is an 84 year old lady with almost zero knowledge of computers and who really needs an anti-virus program before a baddie sneaks in and devours her Win98 and AOL setup.
If it works, I can see no harm in handcarrying her a copy of AVG rather than spending God knows how long downloading it at 26KB from her computer.
Good job!! :)
Glad you could work this out! Fix that lady up... try to download in her name with her serial number. That way you are only doing her a favor by doing the leg work for her. Congrats on taking care of your friend.
once you have installed AVG, go to settings and change the scheduler to look for updates daily.
You should also get her email address and come here once a day at least to check to see what has been updated.
the Updates are all in the same thread and AVG is usually the first to be noted.
once you have determined that there is an update inform your friend so she can update her PC as well.
cletus thats the right thing to do never mind our holly roller(
and several of my customers have paid for the pro version after they used the free
