I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Greetings Let me start by saying that what I am about to describe is NOT a malware virus problem It does involve a browser being redirected to the wrong website but we have checked repeatedly and to the best of our abilities we have ruled out malware or viruses Windows desktop Internet access is through ethernet wired redirect browser/website a -- challenge/mystery Got through a router that also provides wireless access to other devices in the house What we have is a single computer in the house out of desktops laptop and tablet that cannot reach a single specific website an SMF forum using Internet Explorer or Chrome It CAN get there using the AOL browser What happens with Got a challenge/mystery -- browser/website redirect IE and Chrome is that the browsers are redirected to another non-malicious as far as we can tell website that resides at the same Got a challenge/mystery -- browser/website redirect webhosting service as the website we are trying to reach Tracerts and Pings go to the correct site Other users as in people all over the country can reach the correct site Other computers in the same household go to the correct site using both wired and wireless access This appears to be a very computer-specific problem It does not seem to be an IP problem because the other computers in the house are not encountering it and it is not a website or network problem because no one else is running into the problem Any thoughts The only other piece of information that seems pertinent is that back in July this same computer suddenly could not reach the quot target quot website at all no matter what browser was being used All browsers would stall and time out or give a quot website can not be found quot type of message Tracerts and pings failed completely The tracerts said that the website could not be resolved and never generated even a single hop At the time we consulted a number of people and the only explanation that seemed like it might have merit is that it might have something to do with the MAC address Someone else suggested that it had to do with TCP IP settings We never got it fixed The problem just half-corrected itself about two weeks ago and then went sideways to the current situation What s different between IE amp Chrome versus the AOL browser that could explain this If you have an idea please use dummy talk I m fairly good with computers but networking and IP protocols baffle me Thanks Macgyver nbsp

A:Got a challenge/mystery -- browser/website redirect

Login as a Admin on that system.
Get a command prompt and enter these two commands:
ipconfig /flushdns​net stop "dns client"​quit the browser and restart it. Now access a good site (aka this one) and then a site you are having issues with.

What's the results?

A:Want a challenge? it the hard drive, the motherboard, or the PSU?

It could be the PSU beginning to break down, as the different results using different connectors of the power supply certainly raises questions as to the state of it.

However, then seeing the problem persists even when using a different PSU then makes you wonder if the issue is entirely unrelated to the PSU, and in fact something entirely different.

If it was me, and the motherboard was under warranty, my first port of call would be to RMA it, and get a replacement. I highly recommend you stick to Gigabyte, they make outstanding motherboards generally.

I m not entirely certain whether or not any of you have been asked the following question but here it is Is it possible to cheaply turn component video into a VGA or DVI signal with decent quality and resolution For those of you who want more details here is the problem at hand As you know a video-game console will only give a component video output In order to display this signal you would need a component video input Such inputs already exist and have existed for quite some time on a normal television But what about an LCD computer screen Unless you were smart and paid for an LCD television you re stuck with DVI HDMI or VGA as your inputs I am in the unfortunate aforementioned position but nevertheless I would like to beat my head against this brick wall to see if I can put a hole in it Or perhaps knock challenge Component video it down There are converters out there that will indeed change these signals to the right ones for use with an LCD monitor The drawback of course is that these are ungodly expensive Between and to be exact I d be better off just buying a larger LCD tv Component video challenge screen for that money I m also a college student and therefore quite poor So my question to you fellow technology freaks is this Component video challenge can you help me to figure out a way to make this work for under Or is such a task better left alone or left to the professionals that do it for hundreds of monies For me the LCD monitor in question is a inch Samsung which uses a DVI or VGA input nbsp

For me, the LCD monitor in question is a 22 inch Samsung which uses a DVI or VGA input.Click to expand...

So I'm not entirely sure what you are looking for I understand you have a LCD monitor with a DVI or VGA input and then;
a) you speak of converting "video into" is this an analogue tape player?
b) what are you converting or planning to stream from (device) computer, Xbox
c) are you looking for a converter or a cable and converter eg.HDMI/F to DVI 24+5/M Adapter or Gold Plated 1080i HDMI Male to DVI Male Connection Cable (1.8M-Length) or DVI 24+1M to HDMI Female Gold Plated Adapter? (my calculation from $HK to $AUS 14.64 delivered! :slurp: )

Hi gang,
I thought i would throw this out to anyone who enjoys cruising Newegg. i am about to update a friends computer and have a strict budget of $500.00. I need the folowing components-

video card- version of a HD 4850
Motherboard-Pref a 790 chipset and 2 Pci-e slots
Cpu- AMD Quad or Tri
Lightscribe optical
4 gb ddr2
Im working on it myself as we speak, and have come up with one config thats right at $500.00 with the above specs, but i always enjoy suggestions from you all.


A:$500.00 challenge

POWERCOLOR AX4850 512MD3-DH Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail $139
Marginally better overclocking, and easier, than the 920, though you could save almost $40 by stepping down.
AMD Phenom II X4 940 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Black Edition Processor - Retail $229

Who here has a home network that can sustain this kind of efficiency? This is my home network sustaining around 80-82 mbit/sec over 2.5 gigs of file transfer.

The spikes you see there are due to file changes during the transfer. At this moment there are 7 live machines on my network and the receiving machine was also pulling files from my file server. Another machine on this network was downloading from the internet at a steady 177 KByte/sec during this transfer as well.

I challenge all you guys to post screenies of your EFFICIENT home networks out there!

P.S. - Gigabit is definitely welcome!

Ok here s the deal Intel Celeron Ghz Mb DDR memory Windows XP pro Onboard video lan sound Mobo ASRock P S Allways worked perfectly Then the rebooting and systemcrashes started I re-installed it completely Windows updates and servicepacks installed latest drivers installed except for the videodrivers because i couldn t find them and the problem seemed to you: BSOD, for Random Rebooting, you a it. challenge Here's name crashes.. be fixed Or not When I found and installed the video drivers the system kept coming with rebooting and crashing at random order at that moment I decided to turn off the auto-restart option on system crash and got the Blue Screens O Death These told me I had problems with DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA I de-installed the video drivers in safe mode and thought it would be fixed but it wasn t Still the system crashes and bluescreens Then I decided to test the internal memory with mem-test When i ran it it said Loading and when it was done loading the system restarted me never seeing the mem-test Could someone please point me in the right direction cause i m getting ready to throw this computer out the window nbsp

A:Here's a challenge for you: Random Rebooting, BSOD, crashes.. you name it.

You will need to run memtest with only one stick of ram at a time.

take out all other extra components that you dont need to run the system so you have just a minimum setup (psu, mobo/cpu, 1 ram, 1 hdd, audio/video) and try to see if it work ok. If ok, then start putting in things one by one untill you find the problem.

goto C:\Windows\Minidump and post any (5-6 of them if possible) of the new/recent ones here

A:here's a challenge ... duron 1.0 upgrade

You're really going to have to increase your budget if you want to play Battlefield2. It's much too modern a game to squeek by with an upgrade to that older system.

You CAN build decent Socket A performing game PC's, but your mainboard is limited to 200/266 Socket A processors. Good luck finding one of these! If your mainboard had 333/400 support, I'd say just plop a 2800+ Barton, 1 gig of ram and a cheapo AGP card and you'd be good to go. Unfortunately, 200/266 Socket A's are pretty much obsolete and underperforming for better games.

You can still scavenge many of your old parts towards a new system though, such as dvd, hard drive, floppy, monitor, keyboard, etc.etc. and do so economically. If you go all the way to a PCI-Express or a budget AGP system is the question.

You can have the parts to assemble a 1gig, ddr2-800, AMD's new AM2 socket Athlon 3000+, SLI PCI-Express motherboard, Radeon X1600 Pro 256mb in a nice Antec black case with 450W power supply for under $500. From there, you just snap in your hd, drives and format/re-install Windows.

Have you tought about you PSU? try to avoid generic ones...what's your Wattage?
You have too keep something in mind...Whenever a component idles uses less power,so when it is in full load it uses a bigger amount of power.

A:Up to the Challenge?

Have you tried picking the correct SATA drivers and copying them onto a floppy?
That's the only way to get those SATA drivers installed via F6, NOT from a CD.
And if you get only 130GB, you can always partition/format the rest once XP is up and running, if you can't get SP2 to slipstream.

However, there is no sound coming in. I checked all the settings in the sound controller, checked the drivers, looked for the control file... still nothing. I'm sure it's a small bogus I misunderstood.

Please help me quick, it's for my work.



Most soundcards allow only one input channel active at one time. Are you sure you have selected the line-in and nothing else? You can see it in the recording volume control. (Are you sure it's line-in and not microphone?)

I have tried unsucsessfully to update avira antivirus it used to be ok but for some reason it wont update now. Ive tried uninstalling and re-installing a number of times no luck, ive also tried installing differant antiviras but they wouldnt update either.
The thing is windows updates ok and malwerebytes updates ok.
Ive included the log from the last update attempt in case this helps.


A:Avira not updating

Without going into your update log, I give the following advice from my personal experience, which I believe you should consider before doing further efforts, which may even cause more harm than good.

I take it for granted that you've checked your firewall log to ensure it's not blocking the update for some reason.

Bear in mind that Antivir does occasionally have update problems, because its servers are busy, though this does not seem to be happening right now. When such problems occur, they are usually resolved of their own in a couple of days. More generally, updating seems to be a weak point of this otherwise first class utility.

The first thing to try is to enter a scheduled updating task to take place at a time that suits you:
Administration > Scheduler: enter the update task.
This solved a similar problem in my case some time ago and it?s even more convenient, as updating takes place at the time I prefer.

If the above also fails, you can seek specialized advice from experts at the Avira support forum for AntiVir Personal for Windows. You'll see many people having updating problems and a solution proposed may also apply to you. If not, You can post your log there.

I use the paid version of Avira Premium 10 and was thinking about purchasing SuperAntiSpyware Professional. I've read on the Avira support site that there will be conflicts with the real time protection in SuperAntiSpyware Pro and Avira. The forum responders are always telling people to uninstall SuperAntiSpyware. But, the SuperAntiSpyware support forums state otherwise. They say there won't be any problems. I don't know which to believe. I know all computers don't work the same but it would be nice to hear from someone that isn't on either company's website. I can't install the trial version because I have tried to but it says my "evaluation period has expired". I don't remember trying it ever before today. I do have the free version and am using it.

Avira anti-virus free has a splash screen on startup as opposed to the nag screen to upgrade to paid version.

I tried to find a way of disabling the startup splash screen using the Techspot Search FAQs option, but it only seemed to cover the nag screen rather than the startup splash screen. Therefore I Googled it and found the following link from Avira telling how to disable it... here. It listed the following three steps:

1. Start the Windows registry editor (Start -> Run -> regedit)
2. Under \HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\ click on avgnt
3. Add the parameter /nosplash to this entryClick to expand...

When I did this, it did not stop the splash screen without the following modification.

In step 3, I had to replace the letters min at the end of the key with nosplash, rather than just add /nosplash.

Would appreciate anyone else's feedback on this.

A:Avira splash screen at startup

In order to turn off the AntiVir splash screen, please follow these steps:
1. Start the Windows registry editor (Start -> Run -> regedit)
2. Under \HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\ click on avgnt
3. Add the parameter /nosplash to this entry
The splashscreen will no longer appear during startup and AntiVir will start in the background.Click to expand...

How was your spacing when adding this entry? It looks to me like it's it may be a space followed by forward slash followed by nosplash> like this:avgnt /no splash
avgnt space/nosplash instead of avgnt/nosplash.

Give that a try,

If it still doesn't work, I found this recommendation to someone asking the same question on Wilder'sSecurity Forum:

maybe someone has a fix for this. (hopefully this is the right forum ! )
when avira antivir loads its daily updates, it ends with a large splash screen to sell product that is just annoying. i know it's a free product - but ii also know there may be a workaround for it that i haven't been able to discover.

anyone have a way around this ?

An obnoxious splash screen from those furriners is a small price to pay for such an excellent antivirus program. This is the first one I have seen that I would enthusiastically buy... but I won't buy it until I know they wont have an obnoxious splash screen for the paid virgin.

Do you know a way to stop these annoying popups forever please? An alternative is to completely uninstall Avira and select another antivirus. I`m open to suggestions.

They of course want you to upgrade to their paid solution.

I'd recommend swapping over to Windows Defender which is already installed on Windows 8 machines.

Do you know a way to stop these annoying popups forever please? An alternative is to completely uninstall Avira and select another antivirus. I`m open to suggestions.

Hiya and welcome to Tech Support Guy

If you're still having this problem, see here:

However, it says to click the link for Manual Uninstall, but the link is broken. So, click here instead:

If you read the comments at the bottom, the one at the end has the same issue, so a manual uninstall is needed

I'm not sure what I want to do is possible so here's the scenerio

A folder is stored on a shared drive and within that folder is another folder with a unique name (username)

What I want to be able to do is create some code that when the first folder is opened it will only display the folder that has the same name as my username that I have logged onto the computer with.

Is this possible ??

A:Anyone up for a Challenge ??

Hi, I'm not a network guy but I think a script that sets user rights on-the-fly in a specific folder based upon the logged in username should do the trick.
Powershell or vbs script.

I just (stupidly) opened an "Avira free antivirus" RAR and ran the EXE. And it's clearly a virus.
I still have the file in an RAR when I restored to to test it on an online scanner.
I did not finish the whole installation process, however I clicked through a few stages of "no's", asking to install toolbars, and such.
i'm not sure if I should be uploading the file for examination or something. I'm trying a few AV's, MBAM and an ACTUAL Avira antivirus, but I don't know if that's enough.

A:Failure to install Avira

Hello kennylim,
First, in case you weren't aware, Windows XP is currently End Of Life and it will have no more security updates. But if you're already aware of that, see the below:
It looks like you're running XP with Service Pack 2! The latest service pack for XP is SP3. I would suggest you update to Service Pack 3 asap (an SP2 system is extremely vulnerable to malware attacks)! You can do so from here:
If you cannot install SP3, then there may be a possible problem with WGA. This may be preventing you from installing that service pack.
Please download MGADiag and save it to your desktop.
Double click the icon on your desktop.
Click Continue
Click Copy
Go to Start -> Run and type in "Notepad"
Go to Edit -> Paste in notepad.
x out all of the numbers and letters in the line beginning with "Windows Product Key:"
Copy and paste that log here.
Aside from that, it looks like you might need to also update your .NET Framework for the Avira installation to be successful. This is worth a try if you cannot update to SP3.
Either way, post back the results of the MGA diagnostic in your next reply and let us know how it goes.

Since my Avira Free A/V program updated itself the it keeps hanging/stopping on some .txt files. The first was a bog standard .txt file the after deleting the file it stopped on another .txt file and wouldn't budge. Unfortunately I cannot access the .txt file as it's in C:\RECYCLER\....\Dc14.txt and even though I've done a search and ticked for show hidden files I cannot get to it.

Any ideas.



BTW I'm running XP Pro

A:Avira Free & .txt files

I've used Avira Free for a few years now and never encountered a situation as you describe.

There is no reason for Avira to become hung up on any file type or file.

There is the possibility that malware files may be detected by Avira which cannot be handled...although I have never experienced such and would not expect this to be the case.

I have windows 7 64bit.  I was going to save a copy of VirtualBox to dvd, the file was ready to be written to disc but then I changed my mind and deleted the temp file.  As soon as I did it avira popped up with this warning,
Virus or unwanted program 'TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen2 [trojan]'
detected in file 'C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-21-3139134934-3399216541-1204604078-1003\$R0KA5D5.exe.
Action performed: Transfer to Scanner
A quick scan ran but nothing more happened.
So is this a virus or did avira just detect the temp file of virtualbox in the recycle bin as a virus.  I have emptied the recycle bin.

A:Avira reported a virus in the recycle bin

Hi there,TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen2 is a generic detection Avira uses for packed files. So this file may or may not be malicious.I would just empty the Recycle Bin and be done with it. If you wish to have a checkup then let me know.Regards,Alex

TR/Trash.gen Am by blocked I infected? still Firefox by a quick right click on the lower task bar and choosing close but I don't know if that problem was related to an infection It hasn't happened again since then System and protection software Windows XP Pro v SP Avira - free version Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - paid TR/Trash.gen blocked by Avira.

Last night while updating Malwarebytes free I had the option to go for the trial version, so I did.
So today I log on and find everything seem takes longer to load and I can't open Avira Free from the desktop icon and there's no sign of it in the taskbar. Tried right click/run as administrator to no avail.  I eventually opened it from the start menu.
Could this have something to do with the Malwarebytes update?

A:Malwarebytes trial vs Avira free question

Hi redjim It's possible that there has been a conflict with Avira and Malwarebytes, and that now Avira refuses to launch, but I doubt. Avira and Malwarebytes are supposed to be compatible with each other. If you restart one more time, does the situation goes back to normal or not?

Hi, everyone-
I hope this is an easy fix, but I can't find a solution anywhere- I uninstalled Avira from my laptop with Revo Uninstaller and thought I would never see anything regarding Avira on my computer... I have Windows 8.1 and the only person using it- I found 2 services running and when I try to Disable them, it says Access Denied? Don't know why since I'm the only user... Hoping someone here can give me some advice on getting rid of this- Unless it doesn't matter that is there? 
Thank you very much for your help,
Kiki G.

A:Removed Avira Free Antivirus with Revo and it still has 2 services running that

Hello Kikig04:
Delete possible Avira residues:
Make sure that your folder options are set as follows:
Click on:
Start → Control Panel → Folder Options → View → Show Hidden Files and Folders → OK
and delete the following folders:
C:\Program Files\Avira
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Avira
There is no action required if these folders do not exist.
Run the avira_registry_cleaner_en.exe from the Administrator's desktop:
Click on read keys and confirm with OK after the scan
In case some keys will be found, enable the control box "select all", click on Delete and confirm the next prompt with OK
The most recent Avira Free may also install an extension amongst the browser add-ons.
Thank you.

I have recently got this 0x40000015 error message when I try to open Avira Free on a windows 7 desktop.
I tried to reinstall from the original file but that didn't work.
So I did a total uninstall and downloaded it and reinstalled it but I keep getting the same error message.
Can anyone shed any light on this?

A:0x40000015 error with Avira

Hi redjim From what I can see, this error message is caused by either a bad installation of the software, or the fact that the system is infected and a malware prevents it from launching. What you can try to do is to uninstall Avira Free again, but this time, follow their manual installation procedure, and use their Registry Cleaner tool to delete all Avira entries from the Registry and make sure that there's no remnants left of the product on your system. Follow the procedure in the link below, then reinstall it and let us know if you still get that error message.

I have Avast on my machine and would like to make a clean transition to Avira to avoid leftover traces. Any advice appreciated!

A:Want to uninstall Avast and install Avira (seamlessly)

Hello there,You will want to uninstall Avast the 'normal' way - via Programs & Features in Control Panel.If the installation process failed for some reason, use Avast Clear to remove it instead.Then install Avira.A word of advice: If you want to use Avira's Web Protection, do NOT remove the Avira Toolbar under all circumstances!Hope this helps.Regards,AlexEDIT: Emsisoft products do not target the Avira Toolbar... not sure about MBAM and other AMs - but probably not, since it'll break Avira.

Hi folks!
It's December of 2014, and the new Avira Products is finishing on their latest versions to this year's completion, as summary.
You can check them out at their web-site:
Let's start this topic, as a general discussion of end-year Avira products (up to February).
So, my suggestions for the end-year Avira software:
1. Is to make "scan within the links" on-demand scanner's option ticked ON by default.
2. Is to make "use dual-core processor (and up) power, while scanning" option ticked ON by default. Also named "optimize processing speed" on scans.
.....these are, mainly, and are applicable for Avira Anti-Vir Personal, for home (freeware).
The program looks good, and are... scanning speeds are awesome, GUI is clear, like at anti-virus laboratory / base office, detection rates are top, and all.
So, let's start talking here!
Go on and post here, telling us about your thoughts on Avira's end-line products. Cheers.

A:Avira - December 2014

December 2014.
Avira Anti-Vir Personal for home use, freeware.
I use Avira Anti-Vir Personal.
My complaint, is that during Avira updates it can take minutes to end-up one single update.
Usually, it takes ~3:00/~3:45 of minutes to finish it up.   The process sounds heavy, and IS hard on an HDD. I've noted, Avira "presses" on an HDD so much, is because it's rewriting the scanning code / detection code / detection algorythm all the time on each time it updates, that's because. The initial process is heavy and loady - each new update gives blocks of fragmentations (usually, not a big line).
The system is of 2004:
AMD single-core Sempron on 2.0 GHz (for MS Word 2D tasking, mainly)
a standard motherboard, from ASUS
1 GByte of system RAM (enouph for Windows XP, even on today)
NVidia GeForce 6150SE plus graphical adapter
160 GBytes HDD + 80 GBytes HDD in addition
one DVD+RW
Starting of August 2013, Avira become taking kilograms on its code / program's source code.
It become more and more MBytes of its install file... on and on, until it reached such heavyness.
So, the ask is:
What would it take to optimize the process? Is it hard to develope?
Can Avira provide such compliment to us?
Thank you.
End note: Please, post a link of this thread to their help forums. I want 'em personally to go check here.

I have been using Avira Free with a Windows 7 laptop for several years and it's been ok, but there are quite a few annoying pop ups and I suspect it's dragging the performance (boot times) a bit.
I recently switched from Avira Free to Windows Defender on a Windows 8 laptop and I have been pleased with the results so far.  Faster start ups and no pop ups.
Now I am thinking of switching the Windows 7 laptop, but I understand that Windows Defender is not an antivirus option (only anti spy for Windows 7)?  So I would need Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) instead.
Has anyone switched to MSE for Windows 7 and willing to share their experience?  Thanks!!

A:Windows 7 Free Anti Virus: Avira vs MSE?

I'm not using Windows 7, but 8.1...
I've used MSE for a while but quickly switched to something else, first I used Avast! Free Antivirus on my system but after some reading on the forums and look into AV tests I switched back to Emsisoft wich is a very good antivirus and antimalware program.
So my experience with Microsoft Security Essentials: Don't use it if you can get beter. 
Best of luck!

So, I uninstalled Avira free from my computer, removed the plugins from my browsers, and also deleted the leftover folders from my hard drive. As far as I'm concerned Avira should be completely gone from my PC, but its not :/

Recently I clean installed Chrome (yes, I deleted the old Chrome folders before reinstalling) just to fix some errors I was having and noticed that Avira Browser Safety was trying to install itself!

I was under the impression that Avira was gone because I uninstalled it and deleted the folders but obviously some leftover is hiding on my PC somewhere :/

Does anyone know where its hiding so I can get rid of it? Its unacceptable that such a reputable company would do something so annoying :/

*Antimalware Program
Malwarebytes Premium Version offers Realtime Protection thus if you are willing to pay for a Security Product alongside AV i would suggest Malwarebytes. Others are a on demand scanners. You can get some really good on demand scanners for free such as Norton Power Eraser, Comodo Cleaning esssentials or EEK. This is why i don't feel like Paying for an On-Demand scanner.

Avira free is better than WIndows Defender.

Is it enough to protect your system ?

For high-risk computing - no; For conservative\safe computing habits - likely.

Still it lacks some conventional products that can be more flexible like Sandbox implementation, BB or possible HIPS as a final resort for bypass protection.

Even though Avira Browser is at Beta, it seems having a sandbox feature is too way common and a must for every products.

In case Avira Rescue System is able to detect the Windows installation on any of your HDDs, you will also have the possibility to modify manually the system registry, which may take care of some problems which prevent the computer form booting correctly.

All in all, Avira Rescue System offers a rather easy to use set of tools that will prove very valuable for anyone troubleshooting a system that is either virused or otherwise damaged.

So I thought I'd try out Spyshelter, since it is on sale for 50% off. But I think I read that Avira IS 2015 was weak on zero day.

Maybe a cloud scanner added to what I already have would be a good choice. What do u think. All advice is appreciated.

What else do I need. I have Avira IS 2015, Heimdal, Hitman (demand scan only), and Spyshelter.

Oh one more question. I have uninstalled Keyscrambler Premium in order to try Spyshelter, I can't run both right, since they do the same thing.

Avira's claim to fame is its good signatures, fast file verdicts and ability to detect polymorphism... it is not a zero-day protection really. Zero-day will be addressed by SpyShelter before any of the other softs.

If you are using SpyShelter Firewall along with Avira, Heimdal, HitmanPro you already have enough in terms of malware protections - but that is just my opinion. Others will suggest additional softs...

Avira claims 99.99% in malware detection but most of the samples downloaded from MT is undetected only one or two out of ten are detected is Avira going down the hill ?

Since last AV-COMPARATIVE review, where avira got 1st place on detection rate and 1st place on real time protection, i use it on my pc, and despite a little slow down, i'm happy with it.

But i can't stop thinking maybe it's not that good, due to many reviews i've seen confusing me (some of them show this AV as an awsome one, some others make it look crap)

You, Avira users, fully recommend it?

I'm looking for low system impact but great great detection and real time protection. (if not, what do you recommend with this aforementioned points?

Thanks in advance MalwareTips users!

A:Do you fully recommend Avira?

Avira is strong as a reactive protection, It has low or no proactive detection at all. I'd go with ESET rather than Avira, in my opinion; ESET has more to offer.

I am still using Avira Free AV due to problems I had with the automatic update in November I am wondering if the new version includes any Firefox extension add-ons - like Avira SafeSearch Avira SearchFree Toolbar plus Web Protection Avira Browser Safety If so can anyone verify that they were easily able to disable those extensions thru Avira or remove them If not I ll have to hack the WindowXP Registry to keep Firefox from finding those extensions because disabling those extensions thru the Firefox Add- ns Manager is out of the question browser Firefox and Avira 15 Free extensions due to the ridiculous number of Profiles I have - triple digits the last time I counted them all - on my main Logon Account and in my Admin Logon Account I have been using Avira Free specifically because it doesn t include Firefox extensions of that nature other than the version where there was one Firefox extension that was subsequently removed a month or two after version was released Thanks Ed nbsp

A:Avira Free 15 and Firefox browser extensions

Avira Free Antivirus has not a add-on or a toolbar. On the latest versions, I did not see any toolbar (Ask) or add-on installition.
Maybe you saw Avira Browser Safety add-on for Firefox. You can get it from HERE. It is not included into installers. Avira Browser Safety is one of the great add-on on the market imho.
But you can able to remove and disable it from your Firefox. There is no compulsion!
