    It seems targeted to readers of PC Welt magazine, but it doesnt mention any particular conditions/rules. i think its ok to apply.

    When downloaded and installed, is there an English option?
    Edited. I notice there is a very long license number and then an = ggu+ Is this some sort of user name or just part of the license number?

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    the license will stay good until October and the name you put when you applied will appear on the main interface of Antivir

    Is there an English option during installation?
    Previously I had used the 6 month offer for F-Secure, and it had an English option.

    All went well, and it is doing well. I have been using the Workstation trial for about a week, and it has worked well also.
    Since I have had problems with both KAV 6, and F-Secure 2007 on this machine, I am hoping that AntiVir will do well. Earlier I found that Avast, F-Prot, and NOD also run well on this computer so I have some good choices.

    Hey, that PC Welt magazine has some good offers.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    Hi Johnny,

    That seems to be a recurring problem with all versions of AntiVir. I have had one instance since I installed the PC Welt offer. Although the guard was working, I was not sure until I checked. I did reboot and the icon shows in the tray now.

    I cannot understand why this particular problem cannot be fixed. That problem, and the guard not turned on at start caused me to ditch AntiVir on my desktop. I am hoping it is not going to be a problem on this desktop, as I have high conficence in the AV.

    Best,
    Jerry

    this is avery known issue with Avira, and they are diligently working on correcting it. It doesnt effect security but it is just more of a aggravation for the user.

    Thanks Coldplay for posting the link. I've been using Avira personal for awhile now and I like it.

    My key arrived a few hours ago; haven't tried installing yet as I can't open the document that came in the zipped folder. Adobe won't read it neither will Works. I haven't tried opening it with Office yet as I don't have that program installed on this computer. It's on another computer and I'll try opening it on that in awhile.

    Maybe I don't need to open that document at all, there's a promising postscript at the bottom of the letter with what looks like a long key but I'll get to that in a minute.

    If the worst comes to the worst, I'll cut and paste the email to Babelfish but I'm hoping that someone here will help me out first.

    There's a long, long code at the bottom of the letter as I say, and I'm wondering if this is the key I need.

    It goes:

    BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----

    Version: GnuPG v1.4.2 (GNU/Linux)

    It's followed by two lines of code.

    I'm wondering if this is the business, the vital information, though the GNU/Linux bit puts me off. Supposing it's not intended for Windows XP at all which is what I'm running.

    I'm very excited about Avira Premium. The personal edition runs light as a feather on my system and I'm hoping that I can get this sorted tonight with a some assistance.

    It will put the icing on a security system which I've developed over 5 months mainly through reading here in Wilders and importuning the odd bit of help since I've become a member.

    Cheers all,

    River

    You only need HBEDV.key.
    Save it to somewhere where you can find it back.
    Run the installer and you will be asked for this key. Point to it where you have saved this key.

    Managed to open the HBEDV.key file with notepad. Boy, that is one long heck of a key.

    Going to download the English version now. Wish me luck guys and thank you for responding, Gerard and Cold.

    Thanks again, guys.

    You do not need to open the key file, but just save it where you can find it when you "Browse" and install it. Anyway, whatever will work. Let us know how you do.
