Overview

AVG CloudCare is a program developed by AVG Technologies. The most used version is 3.1.1, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.

It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. 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 software installer includes 63 files and is usually about 234.46 MB (245,851,275 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 73% of users of AVG CloudCare come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Australia.
