AVG 2015

Overview

AVG 2015 is a program developed by AVG Technologies. The most used version is 2015.0.5577, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is avgmfapx.exe. The software installer includes 62 files and is usually about 117.11 MB (122,798,229 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 8. While about 44% of users of AVG 2015 come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Germany.
