How to activate AVG

Core AVG products such as AVG AntiVirus and AVG PC TuneUp need to be activated with a license number. There are few common mistakes which may lead to unsuccessful activations, therefore I’d like to share few tips on how to activate your AVG smoothly and without any complications.

  1. Download the latest version of AVG product you’ve purchased.
  2. Make sure you have the latest and complete license number. You can find it in your mailbox or inside the box with installation disc. Go to http://www.avg.com/lost if you can’t find it.
  3. Copy&Paste the license from your mailbox or transcribe it carefully from the box.
  4. Make sure there are no spaces or other characters before or after the license number.
  5. Click Activate to start enjoying your AVG.
