Avira website has become terribly unclear, recently.

Although the current website is better for those who know the minimum about computers, the rest of us need to know where to find this or that. Every advanced product is now hidden under layers of links, or completely hidden. The website map is terrible. No easily-available addresses for downloading a complete Avira installation package (for offline installation), no addresses for fusebundles, etc. Everything is extremely ...more »

Stopped / failed update downloads should "Resume", not Re-Start

Recently, the updater keeps failing to download large updates. I know it is because of the server overload. However, I don't understand why Avira does not allow resuming a broken download from where it was stopped? Such a feature will reduce the need to download the whole package from the beginning, and thus reduce the size of all download traffic, and thus allow the servers to work better. Why every time a 50-meg download ...more »

Submit suspicious files / URLs to VirusTotal.com

VirusTotal.com is a web-based service equipped with 60+ antiviruses. It has a (secret) feature that sends a suspicious file, instantly to all the collaborating antiviruse labs (if any of them cannot detect a file as malicious). So if Avira can send a virus to VirusTotal.com (instead of its own labs exclusively), all antiviruses will become better, and we will have a cleaner computer / web experience.

Avira Antivirus Pro

Get rid of the metro style when clicking on the tray icon! Right clicking on the tray icon does not show the following; enable/disable email, enable/disable firewall. How tell if email protection is enabled or if firewall is enabled? I use to have avira_internet_security which was great. Now this new release is awkward and has missing tray icon selections. There is no way to quickly block the Internet connection. ...more »

Improve usability - - AMES block spammers TOP

In the statistics, there are the top Email Sender, since you can also see who the top spammers have yet to come through. Beautifully a switch next to the entries as would "Block sender permanently" or put "on blacklist or whitelist". Then you must not only write down the address, switch to the service and submit there again.

More columns with information in the quarantine

Please add more columns with information to the quarantine. At least I miss the size of the files that in. But I think every information that a user can see in the extended information would be also interesting as columns. A lot of apps have included a configuration of the columns that should be shown in file lists. Think that would be interesting for Antivir, too. I attach two screenshots to show what kind of information ...more »

Fallback on upgrade

The in-app update tool doesn't worked, net installer doesn't worked, so I used the complete installer. But I think it is a problem for a normal user to have the idea to make this solution and find the complete installer on the webpage. So I think there is a fallback missing in the in-app update tool and the net installer that when the upgrade goes wrong, it use the solution the complete installer use, download the complete ...more »

Add Windows Firewall Rules

When installing Avira on Windows 7, it is unable to update its virus definitions if Windows Firewall is set to block unknown programs from connecting to the Internet. Avira needs to request to be added to Windows Firewall so its outbound connections can be allowed. Manually adding Avira to Windows Firewall is difficult, because there are 20 different *.exe files to choose from in \Program Files\Avira\Antivirus The ...more »

Super Basic Interface

Dear Avira: One of the more appealing aspects of a good Antivirus, Firewall, or any technical utility is a fundamentally basic interface. The more prehistoric or "Windows 95" a utility appears, the more credibility it is given by the tech community as "useful" software. I would encourage a redesign of the interface to a bare bones essentials, with all options and settings in one place, and all user actions in one place. ...more »

Installation procedure

I have to say the installation procedure is a bit convoluted for the internet security suite. There are quite a number of packages to install and why aren't these all put in the download section in one place. I had to look in the faq section in order to discover where the extra options are.. Granted these will not be used by many, I was under the impression i had just bought just the antivirus pro and not the security ...more »

Lost / Stolen Report

Good day light of recent events, I have 2 suggestions for improvements: 1 - About the website, you can send a report via email. Unfortunately I miss, the serial number (possibly IMEI). You do not see them on the website but in the email. 2 - Is there a possibility at least 1 x day (within 24 hours) a place to store the log is visible in the report? (I'm trying for several days, a remote deletion. Every time I get the ...more »
