How to install AVG on Terminal Server

When installing AVG 8.0 on a Terminal Server, it is generally not needed to proceed differently than on workstations. There is only one component in AVG which will run separately for each user - the AVG Tray application - and its effect on the system performance is minimal even when running in multiple instances. However, in case there are some other server applications running on the Terminal Server, it is recommended to skip installation of the AVG component that could affect their functionality:

AVG Web Shield
This component affects all HTTP, HTTPS and PROXY communication, since it scans communication on all respective ports/sockets. If there is a web server, proxy server or ISA server running on the Terminal Server, please install AVG without the Web Shield component.
When Web Shield is not installed, the AVG Toolbar can not be installed as well.

AVG Personal E-mail Scanner
The Personal E-mail Scanner captures and scans all communication on ports 110 and 25 (POP3 and SMTP) by default. In case there is a POP3/SMTP E-mail Server installed on the Terminal Server (or any other application communicating on these ports), it is recommended to skip installation of this component.

To install AVG without these components, you can either run the Custom installation and manually choose which components you wish to install, or use the following parameters:

* installation without Web Shield
avg_*.exe /REMOVE_FEATURE fea_AVG_HttpScanner
* installation without Personal E-mail Scanner

These parameters can be combined to achieve an installation that suits your Terminal Server use.
