party antivirus solution to update properly when Deep Freeze is protecting a workstation. Configure your Deep Freeze install package as per your normal requirements, including passwords and other settings that may be required.
Introduction Deep Freeze provides administrators with a way to protect workstations from changes by rolling back any change made to the computer at reboot. Enter the following in the Batch File Contents field on the tab: 10.
Deep Freeze does not make any distinction between changes that are malicious, or changes that are desired on a workstation and this can pose some challenges in managing 3 party products that require updates to occur on a periodic basis. Click on the “Create” button on the toolbar and save the Workstation Install Program in a location that you will remember. Install the updated workstation install file on your workstations.
Antivirus software by design requires periodic updates to maintain it’s effectiveness on a client workstation, and problems may arise unless steps are taken to ensure that the antivirus software can perform updates in a timely manner.
Scheduled are used to configure the antivirus software to update in a timeframe where Deep Freeze will not be protecting the workstations. Select Batch File in the Task Type drop down and click Add.
This has the advantage of being one of the less difficult methods to configure but does require that the workstations have a period of time where they will not be used and can be configured to update automatically.
Configuring AVG to update with Deep Freeze AVG supports the use of a command line function that can be used to trigger antivirus updates when the workstations enter into maintenance mode. Configure your Deep Freeze install package as per your normal requirements, including passwords and other settings that may be required.
To configure Deep Freeze to trigger AVG to update when maintenance mode starts follow the process below: Deep Freeze 7.5 or Higher 1.
Select Maintenance in the Event Type drop down dialog and click Add. Name the event “AVG Antivirus” in the Event Name field. Select the frequency for the updates to occur in the Day drop down and set the start and end time for the event.
The options “Allow User to Cancel Event”, “Shutdown after Maintenance”, and “Disable Keyboard and Mouse” can be enabled if desired.
There's no option to install AVG without it being able to self-update.
You must be connected to the internet for this, however...
leave it on for a while, if you can't figure out how to do it...
If you're an AVG user having trouble booting into Windows 7, you have our condolences.
