Reg cleaner utility needs improvement

Having experienced numerous problems after recent updates, I decided to reinstall AntiVir on my Windows XPPro SP3 computer. After performing a standard uninstall, I manually searched for and removed remaining registry entries containing "avira" using the RegWorks editor and RegVac. I then ran the avira_registry_cleaner. As you can see from the log below, the manual procedure was very effective. (It also allowed me to ...more »

Ransomware CryptoLocker Prevention

There is a serious increasing at ransoware (cryptolocker) attacks lately. They hit and run, because those attacks made as zero-day, even zero-hour. So it takes time till antivirus sensors detect those malwares. It is a big trouble, because they require ransom for encryption personal and business datas. If you have no backup, and your datas are very important, you have to pay to those kipnappers. Attackers get more keen-set, ...more »

Defrag - space reclaiming

When the partitions are scanned, show the projected amount of space that will be gained. *NOTE* This will also help make the decision whether to defrag an SSD or not. Contrary to popular belief there is a good reason to defrag SSDs. SSDs tend to be smaller than traditional drives, and so disk space is a premium once more. Once the drive gets fairly full, the rate of fragmentation increases rapidly, and you start loosing ...more »

Re-create Safe Hex International

Perhaps it is only a fools dream but, I would like to see a standardised definitions format that all AV can use. In the days when mostly geeks used computers and cooperated more, in the Amiga world we had a huge worldwide group called "Safe Hex International" and a common goal against a common enemy, so they created a common format for all. http://www.amigareport.com/ar305/news7.html All Amiga Antivirus started to support ...more »

Get back to basics

Avira product line up and tools have never been more confusing. Every year our renewal comes around and I have to spend a weekend downloading everything and reinstalling software. The upgrades dont work. There is no excuse for this. My wife had "Internet Security" and now brought Ultimate by mistake, so the software she was using wont accept the licence, has to download, uninstall and reinstall new software. After installing ...more »

I also noticed my computer temperature increases as well until I completely ...more »

Avira Software Updater

One Updater for all Avira products (Avira Software Updater Lite)

Before Avira spends a lot of time and effort in releasing a product to update software of other vendors, IMHO Avira should release a "Lite Version" of this product that only updates Avira products from one point in the system and replace all other update routines in the other Avira products. This should also reduce the time and work in future to manage/update the single update routines in the single programs. Symantec ...more »

Better handling of viruses in packed files (also ISOs)

I recognized some problems in the management with viruses in packed files. If AV finds a infected file e.g. in a ZIP-File, AV moves the archive (ZIP-File) into the quarantine. This is IMHO a big problem! The user maybe missing the archive later or - after e.g. a reinstall of the system - the archive can be gone (deleted). Also I had the problem that AV found a virus in a ISO and then moved the ISO to the quarantine. Not ...more »

Allow use of third-party firewalls

I have a third-party firewall product which I have spent a lot of time configuring, but now Avira warns me that my firewall needs attention because I have disabled the Windows Firewall. Avira doesn't need to do this - Windows Security Center already warns me if my firewall isn't working. I need an option to opt-out of Avira's firewall integration.

IDENTIFY WHAT IS E-MAIL AND ALLOW INCLUSION LIST OF BLOCKED

Dear: I propose an improvement in virus information screen found in e-mail. What happens: 1 - It identifies in which e-mail account was found the e-mail with virus. If I get emails from two accounts, and have to look at what's that email that was indicated to have virus; 2 - I have the right to the listing of shares, as well as things like DELETE ANNEX, INCLUDING IN QUARANTINE, choose BLOCK SENDER. Grateful

Privacy of the customers were

Because the cry of them is very large, data theft and monitoring by example. As for Facebook, and spy on the people on the Internet, most people, however, but not at all know how to protect yourself or verteiligen can, Avira might be a second brilliant idea as then develop the Dail-in protection. Since we anyway have a filter in our Windows product, through the passes all communication, why not use a filter like Squid ...more »
