And on both platforms it monitors AVG Privacy Fix, a tool to protect your online and social media privacy.AVG Zen's main window displays all of your protected devices in a row across the top; if there are too many to fit, you just slide to the left or right. If you've selected a PC, the buttons say Protection, Performance, Privacy&Identity, and Support.It’s also true that if you disable the updates or have computers that are constantly offline and not connected to the internet for long periods or at all, the virus definitions will get badly outdated in no time and your computer becomes more vulnerable.Also, the situation could be that you can’t get on the internet during or after a malware attack to update the antivirus signatures.The installer is suggestively called AVG Anti-Virus Definitions, which deploys the updated package of virus definitions that can be loaded into the AVG Antivirus when an Internet connection is not available or the built-in definition update function fails to work.

If you are running the AVG Remote Administration in an isolated network (the AVG Admin Server has no access to the Internet) and you wish to use the centralized updates, you can use the following steps.
You will need to download the update files manually on the server and run a dedicated utility that will generate files that will allow stations to update. Modify the AVG Admin Server configuration file to enable “offline mode”: 6.
On the other hand, manual updates using the AVG Anti-Virus Definitions package requires more time and can only be performed in full.
In order to manually add updates to your AVG Antivirus, you must save the installer to your computer, then access the Options menu and use the 'Update from folder' option to select the BIN file.
