AVG Internet Security Suite 8 contains several components that allow you to protect the security of you Windows computer. By default, the AVG program will disable some applications and services on your computer for security reasons. One of these is the Universal Plug and Play, or UPnP, service. Although it is recommended to disable a service if you do not need it, the UPnP service is needed for users who share their files with other computers and devices on a local network. Fortunately, you can prevent AVG from disabling this service.
