Hi, i have a problem, i have 8 PC at my work, all have avast free, i don't have a server or proxy, so i don't let the users to have acces to the internet, like browse facebook, youtube, google, nothing, just work...  but i need them to have internet, because avast needs to be updated all time... so what can i do, to don't have web acces, but only avast updates in each PC.
Thanks :D

naaa.....you have two problems. avast free is only for home use.   ::)

your second problem, i think you need to block the web access with a firewall.....not sure how

here is also a alternative openDNS.  http://www.opendns.com/web-filtering
