    I just started using Avira, so far it works pretty well. I had Kapersky (Kracked) but it kaput.

    Avira doesn't feel as clunky as AVG and Avast, I can't say for sure how it stands up to newer viruses but if gives decent protection for free. A spyware program should be run at the same time (like spybot, spyware blaster etc.).

    Anti-virus software changes quite a bit year to year and everyone has their own preferences so probably take a look at them all and see what fits your resources (computer wise).

    Avira is so light, if you tweak it a little, you won't notice it is there.

    Remove the update display.

    1. Open Avira
    2. Click on Administration
    3. Click on scheduler
    4. Right click on daily update and select edit job
    5. Click on next until you see Display Mode:
    6. Set that to invisible.

    Remove the avira ad. (Windows XP)

    1. Click Start and then select Run.
    2. Type in secpol.msc
    3. Expand Software Restriction Policies (click on the +)
    4. Click on Additional rules
    5. Right click at any blank area on the right box (or right click on Additional rules) and select new path rule
    6. Click on browse and locate avnotify inside the avira folder and click Ok (if you have installed avira by its default location, it would be located on C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\)
    7. Set Security level to: Disallowed.
    8. Click Apply and then click Ok.

    Probably a false positive, but not sure until I get the exact details of the detection.

    Mac is not anymore safe from viruses. The only reason it was safe before was that only a few percentage of the world population are using it and little damage can be done if hackers target that. Apple now advice all mac users to run an ant-virus on their system.

    The only OS I can think of that is almost invulnerable to viruses are custom made linux OS.

    nah that is just a false positive though...
    i just made sure so i disabled all my script support on one of the computers just to make sure

    this program might have a programming similarity with the virus codes that is why it reports a false positive.

    anyway you can also try the long manual way to disable antivirus...

    i can do a little guide if you want but if i really have the time i will just do it though...

    What do you think will happen if you are using avast and another anti-virus program?
    I'm using Symantec Endpoint Protection.

    what do you mean??


    Actually for me NOD is good because I'm using it..... (some anti virus sure is better)

    but if some virus cant be detected you can put it to the anti virus folder so that your software will know that if it attacks again it will know that it is a virus... polymorphic viruses really put the creeps on me... AVG is also good but lacks improvements...
    just update your anti virus... and it will sure to protect your pc from those attacks

    I think Avast is way much better than Kaspersky specially when you have applications like games coz Kaspersky is not user friendly and mostly blocks some files that is needed to keep a program running.
