At the moment i am trying the free version of avast that is giving me 2 problems: i need to do the upgrate manually (on every PC) because even if i require the "task" to do it automatically it doesn't do and also it blocks the execution of some small programming programs (like python).
I was wondering if there is an anti-virus with centralized management with automatic update,  not too invasive and if it possible also free eh eh eh .... i tried ;) ??

If you don't want or can't afford to pay, then I would recommend Kaspersky Free Antivirus or Panda Cloud Antivirus.

I'm not sure if those free alternatives will allow centralized management so you will need to research.

Many anti-virus vendors (AVG, Avira, ESET, BitDefender) offer discounts to charitable groups, schools and government agencies....see this Google search result.You may also want to read Anti-Virus Strategy in a Public K-12 Educational Environment.
