Windows Security Centre no values for AVG anti virus

Posted on 2011-09-09

I have a number of XP machines that are running AVG (not free)

I have a script that reads the WSC values but there is nothing in there for these machines.

I tried to repair the WMI repository and also reinstall AVG but nothing.

Does anybody know of a way to resolve this issue - AVG definitely does report to the WSC just for some reason on these machines it is not.

Here are a couple of topics that may have comments that are helpful.

Unfortantely, many in these groups and others actually prefer other products over AVG.

Also AVG has support for both paid and free versions of their product.

The issue was caused because Group Policy was disabling the WSC I removed the GPO and forced an update - all working now.

I solved it myself by altering Group Policy on the server
