AVG Business Antivirus Exclusion Guide

Please note that while we update this guide from time to time, we cannot guarantee compatibility as Anti-Virus software companies may make changes without informing us. The exclusion instructions below are provided by the Anti-Virus software companies, and as such, we cannot guarantee their functionality. Any anti-virus settings that are disabled during this process should be restored to their normal functionality once the exclusions have been set up.

1) Locate the icon for AVG Business Security in system tray (typically in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.)

    • Right click and wait for a small window to pop up.
    • Click on the green button labeled ‘Protection is ON’ and disable to turn the button red. This will temporarily stop any scanning or interruptions from AVG during the installation. AVG will automatically turn back on once the computer is restarted.


2) Download and install the InterGuard software from the InterGuard web interface under “Available Devices” or “Active Devices > All Devices” if you already have InterGuard installed on other devices.

    • IMPORTANT: When prompted to reboot the computer un-check the box to select “no” so the computer does not reboot.


3) Open the main menu of AVG Business Security

  • Click on “General” in the top right-hand corner of the main menu.
  • Select “Exceptions” from the drop down menu.
  • Select “Browse” and find the installation folder path.

4) Exclude the folder by clicking the small black checkmark next to the folder.

  • IMPORTANT: The path excluded in this example will be different then the path you must exclude for your account as this folder is randomized. Please use the path located in your account.Highlight that folder and click on ‘Select Folder’.

6) Reboot the computer and confirm your anti-virus software is on to complete the installation.
