I downloaded AVG Anti Virus on one computer and tried to copy it to a stand alone computer but it says that I need to connect to the internet.

Is there a way to bypass the proxy and the need of internet connection?

Though if the computer is stand-alone do you really need anti virus software? You can check any exe you might want to install on another machine and your main vector, the internet, isn't available. – ChrisF Aug 17 '11 at 20:01
    
@ Brendan, You might explain why you need to do it this way, maybe there is a better answer to your real problem. – Moab Aug 17 '11 at 21:23
    
After some searching I found the 2016 full installer: avg.com/ww-en/download.prd-afh-free – AresAvatar Jun 28 at 0:41

Despite what Jay says, you do not need to download and reinstall a fresh version of the AVG app to keep it updated.

After you've installed AVG using the offline installer Jay linked to, once a week or so, download definition update files to keep the antivirus software up to date and scanning for the most recent viruses.

+1, I did not know that separate definition update files were available. Er, it seems that I have used all my votes for today, but I shall def. upvote you once I can. – TookTheRook Aug 17 '11 at 19:58

Is the installer you are using the offline installer or the online one? The offline one should be around ~170-190 MB depending upon your OS (32 vs 64 bit), whereas the online one is ~5.1 MB. You can find the offline installer here (updated Aug 10, 2011).

Do note that to update your virus definitions at a later date, you would need to download the update definitions as mentioned by music2myear:
