PRTG and Anti-Virus Software

In general, we do not face many issues with Anti-virus software. We sometimes have issues with Ant-virus software during installation or creating reports.

Should you experience difficulties, please check if disabling your security software fixes the problem. If so, turn it back on and try excluding the PRTG program folder.
