Control Center View Enhancement

In the Control Center Overview the specific view is only highlighted by a small icon on the left. It would be better in my opinion if the specific view that is displayed if also presented as a title after the Antivirus Pro. So if the Status view is selected "Antivirus Pro - Status" would be written on top. If Real-Time Protection then "Antivirus Pro - Real-Time Protection. In this manner the current view will be significantly ...more »

AVIRA non-SSE2 compatibility

securitycenter konnte nicht initialisiert werden (0xc000001) => Probleme mit alten CPU Typen ohne sse2 Support.

Das ist extrem wichtig, weil noch sehr viele alte PC's

Allow changing skin color

It is a drawback that the GUI'c color does not follow the color preference of the user.

People with eyesight disabilities or conditions like migraine or photophobia might need a darker version of the skin (or a sheer black for example), not a bright white.

Also a normal person might as well wish to chose a skin of different color or shape, according to his/her personal preference.

Update Feature Location

I would like to see the "Update" feature located in the Tools Menu.

Maybe it is just me, but I do not like to have to click on the "Hamburger" menu at the top in order to click on Manual Update. Sometimes I get a little overzealous and click too high and end up opening the tab behind me.

Just a thought.

Android AV

Enhanced notifications

I'd like to have in addition to the virus check of installed application, some kind of notification via email or so. Sometimes apk got installed without explicit desire, and not yet known to antivirus, therefore not detected right away. There is a note on notification bar about all apps installed - would be nice to have that duped by email, to see strange app being installed when nobody is supposed to install it.

Need longer and better VPN support

Corporate VPN's like Cisco AnyConnect define certain versions of Avira that they support. But they are slow to update their version list and Avira's quick and hidden update process causes the VPN to fail, forcing the users to find a different antivirus program. Avira should 1) allow use of an older version (right now, 2.0) for a year to allow VPN vendors and corporate IT installations to catch up. 2) separate update ...more »

I get the Error 556 when updating! But it's Avira Free!!! Why?

Hi! I installed Avira Free about a month ago for the first time but I've been having trouble with automatic and manual updates since then. The log file constantly shows two errors. The first says "The checksum of the file C:\ProgramData\Avira\Antivirus\TEMP\UPDATE\[any folder]\[any file].vdf.gz is different than the one specified in the info file". The second error message is "Generation of update structure failed. UpdateLib ...more »

Renewal Process needs Reviewing

I am not happy as my pc was without protection for over 5 days.In the renewal email I received it states "We are pleased to confirm that your Avira license has been successfullyupgraded to Avira Internet Security 2013.No action on your part is required." Why does it state no action is required when there is action required i.e. I have to input an activation code ? I am also annoyed that as a loyal customer I renewed on ...more »

Avira Browser Safety

Fashion multi-process Firefox Nightly & Signature XPI

1.Avira Safety Browser does not support multi-process mode Firefox Nightly. It would be nice to fix this before the arrival of multi-process mode on the stable version of Firefox. 2. Firefox 41 completely refuse the installation of unsigned modules as described https://wiki.mozilla.org/Addons/Extension_Signing ... It would be a good idea after all sign the test because it XPI pourrat not be signed by the Mozilla site ...more »

Bug report should be available for non-beta and free versions

Avira developers can't hear a considerable portion of useful and precious feedback, since there is no way to report a bug in Avira Free (non-beta).

Avira allows bug report only for beta versions. Its support team does not allow communications from users of its Free version. Bug reports are blocked when submitted to this very forum (two of my bug reports were).

System Speedup

Move Registry backup

Currently the backup or restore registry option is under Tools - Tune-Up - File Tune-Up. It would seem more useful to be right with the registry cleaner, where it can be backed up first, then click to clean the registry. It took me a moment to find this option, and did not expect it to be under "File Tune-Up". The process could also be streamlined and have a pop-up when you clean the registry asking the user to back-up ...more »

System Speedup

Process & Manager Sorting

Under the System optimizer, when you look at the process and network manager, it is randomly displayed with no sort options like you can sort with the service manager. In the service manager you can click on grey bar to sort to each specific category. I would really like to see these sort buttons that are used in the service manager, to be implemented into the process manager and network manager for easier usage.

difficult installation

Followed instructions, nothing downloaded. Switched browsers, nothing downloaded. Finally got to page that asks about install difficulty, and although i had done everything correctly before, it took me through all the steps and finally installed. Ridiculous. It should have just installed itself when i clicked on install button the first time. Makes me question Avira data integrity if such a simple process is so badly ...more »

Schedulable updates

There is no way to set how often you want to update to check for updates, so now it randomly kicks in very 2 hrs atleast. The worst part though is that this update process is a huge hog of memory and CPU resources and gets the computer to its knees. What needs to be done is 1. Allow updates/update checks to be scheduled 2. The program should be optimised to minimise memory and CPU optimisation Also the AD that comes ...more »

Mr J H

The Avira status page continuously invites me to renew my subscription even though it is current, and shows the expiry month but not the year. This is not very helpfull.

Training materials, information material

I would appreciate it if you could have training materials, or brochures for inexperienced users who click on just about any phishing mail, or who have not yet understood the safe handling of the network, possibly what u even with examples, but also with warnings by Trojans . ä can. happen, so that users no longer take lightly. The documents of the BSI were pompously for some users ...
