Total Detection

I think Avira should publish how many detections are in their database i.e. the total number of malware that Avira has detected. Symantec say their own product has detected 36,617,866 pieces of malware so if you also want Avira to publish the amount of malware on their database please vote.

Evidence

So far I'm missing before the virus scanner changed the file in the minutes of evidence on the property of the infected file (time of creation, modification, ..., size, etc.). As an expert, and to give evidence I would want this information. The customer could recap with what he did at that time.

Windows AV

Different detection levels

Instead of choosing Low Medium or High detection I think it would be good if when it finds a detection it would tell you if it would be detected in Low, Medium and High as a message like this:

Detection High Medium Low

Detection---☑------ ☑---------☑

Scan Speed

The Full scan with Avira seems to take a long time. It was the same when using a different version of Avira which was not beta. The files per second is never high so this probably isn't a bug. So I think that Avira should improve the scanning speed on all their anti virus products.

System Speedup

Hard Drives Dokter

Would it not make sense after the squares have been colored gray, display a progress bar showing how long it will take for the "thesis" is finished? For if one has no time overview of the remaining things that happen there when you can not see anything, even if something happens.

Windows AV

Expired License

Why does the "AVIRA Screen" even with an expired license open (AVIRA per / AVIRA prof)? Since no updates are made, not AVIRA updated and the system is no longer protected. The screen open deceives the user before a false sense of security.

Allow direct download of AV, without forcing OE.

I don't like how you try to force unnecessary garbage by making Online Essentials the downloader for the Free Antivirus. If we wanted Online Essentials you could offer it seperately and those who wanted it could download it. People are probably not aware, as I was not, that you can uninstall Online essentials after it installs the antivirus program. It is under installed programs as 'Avira' the one of smaller size. ...more »

Knowlege articles in style of the Microsoft KB

Got in the beta center a survey about a new style for the KB with steps to check to make it more tidy. Not really what I want as a power user. I wanna have an overview but jump to the steps that are interesting for me, or see what's all included in the KB Article and if I have already tested/done all ...

Mac AV

Update Schedule changeable

In the older version, I can change the update schedule in the "schedule" page, but after install the latest version for Mac, I can't find where to change this setting.

Update for every 2 hours is too frequency for me because it always pop-up when I watched video and the full screen mode would be exited.

App Lock isn't really usefull if the Avira app can be closed

Hello. I've installed Avira app on my Androin phone and it's really good so far. The only thing that dissapointed me is that the App Lock option is not really usefull. I've installed pin code in order to access my sensitive apps like email and e-banking, but anyone can easily close the Avira app and access any app without pin code after Avira is closed. Can I somehow prevent unauthorized person from closing Avira? ...more »

Windows AV

Switch off / postpone energy savings during a scan

We received the following idea from a member of our beta community:

In many cases we as customers have problems with the energy savings mode. When energy saving settings are set to default it lasts 15 minutes until power safe. This ist not enough time to finish a Avira full system scan.

It would be a benefit to postpone energy saving unt the scan is done. Like Microsoft Backup does it.
