How to Activate AVG

by Thomas King

Founded in 1991, AVG is a software company that provides Internet security software for home and business. AVG makes several free programs as well as several programs that must be purchased. When you purchase and install a program from AVG, you will immediately be asked to activate the program. While you can choose not to activate the program immediately, you must do so within 30 days from the time of installation. Fortunately, AVG makes activation relatively simple.

Open AVG.

Click "Information" at the top of AVG and select "Activate AVG" from the drop-down menu. The Activate AVG window opens.

Type your license number (required), username (required) and company name (optional) into the empty boxes.

Click "Activate." A "License Information has been successfully changed" message appears.
