    Thanks for the heads up.

    A bit of a puzzling statement in the full change log on Softpedia though;
    "Avira AntiVir ProActiv is not available for the Avira AntiVir Personal in Q1-2010."

    Would this hint at/imply the inclusion of the BB in a later version in Q2?

    They did beta test quite awhile but Avira does like getting stuff right before presenting to the consumer. Love the GUI.

    What's new in Avira AntiVir Personal - Free Antivirus 10.0.0.561:
    · New Gui
    · Avira AntiVir, version 10 will be released with a new graphical user interface
    · that features a completely new set of icons as well as a new 3D navigation bar and a continuous background picture.
    · The new user interface keeps the proven elements of the old interface and the customer does not need to get into a new interface. However, the new icon set and the other new elements make it much easier for the customer to find his way around the program.
    · 
    · Avira AntiVir ProActiv
    · Avira AntiVir, version 10 is now equipped with a brand new host-based
    · intrusion prevention system called Avira AntiVir ProActiv.
    · AntiVir ProActiv constantly monitors the behaviour of the system in real-time
    · and looks for unusual events.
    · An integrated rule-system is able to decide proactively if a certain event (or a
    · combination of events) indicates that the system is currently under attack from a new or unknown malware.
    · If a rule matches the user is then able to decide what to do with this suspicious file, i.e. to trust it, to block it once, to block it always or to ignore it.
    · Part of this new technology is the Avira AntiVir ProActiv community that
    · allows every Professional customer to take an active role in Avira´s world-wide battle against viruses and malware by automatically sending unknown malware samples to Avira. Those samples are then analysed and the results are fed back into the ProActiv module.
    · Avira AntiVir ProActiv is only installed with a custom installation. If a user
    · upgrades from an AV 9 Professional to the AV 10 he will get a slide up
    · informing him that the new AntiVir ProActiv module is available. He can then
    · install it by doing a change installation.
    · Joining the Avira AntiVir ProActiv community must be separately enabled. If
    · the AV 10 Professsional is managed by the SMC then AntiVir ProActiv and
    · joining the ProActive community can be separately activated either by using the
    · GUI or doing a silent setup.
    Please note:
    · Avira AntiVir ProActiv is not available for the Avira AntiVir Personal in Q1-
    · 2010.
    · 
    · On-Access Scanner with one-click removal, repair and slide-up information
    · ThAvira AntiVir Guard (On-Access scanner) offers an automatic and an
    · interactive mode.
    · This interactive mode has been enhanced and now offers a much easier way of dealing with detected malware. In case a malware was found the access to the corresponding file is now blocked by default. This prevents the customer from accidentally opening the file and infecting his system.
    · The information that a malware has been found is now shown in a slide-up and not in a separate window anymore. The slide-up also offers a one-click removal of the malware. Furthermore, the malware is not only removed from the system but the system itself is also repaired and the damage that might have been done by the malware is also fixed.
    · 
    · Generic disinfection
    · Detecting and deleting a malware is one thing, repairing the damage that might have been done by the malware is another. Avira now offers a new way of repairing the system and put it back into its former state. What you normally do is you use repair scripts to repair the system. This is what Avira also does.
    · But in addition to this script-based repair routines Avira now also offers a so
    · called generic repair. The generic repair is able to repair a system even when there is no repair script available.
    · 
    · Multi-Select in Quarantine
    · The quarantine now allows selecting multiple files at once and e.g. scan them or restore them.
    · 
    · SMTP Footer
    · Customers can now add a footer to any unencrypted email that is sent via
    · SMTP (outgoing) and that has been scanned by MailGuard.
    · It is possible to add the default MailGuard footer with basically says that this
    · email was scanned by AntiVir MailGuard and that also includes the engine and VDF version with which it was scanned and/or the user can also add a self-defined text. If both options are activated, the self-defined footer is place in front of the MailGuard footer in plain text.
    Please note:
    · This feature is not available for the Avira AntiVir Personal.
    · 
    · Update now a separate configuration entry
    · Updating the product as well as the engine and the virus definition files
    · regularly is the most important thing a user has to do to make sure that the
    · system maintains a very high level of security.
    · The Update therefore is now a separate entry in the configuration panel and the hitherto available default update job in the scheduler was removed.
    · As a default the product now downloads and automatically installs product
    · updates, reminds the user every 120 seconds when a restart of the system is
    · necessary and uses a present network connection for connection to the
    · webserver. These settings, however, can be changed by the user, e.g. for doing an intranet update.
    · 
    · Guard process exclusion: use wildcards and name with more than 15 characters
    · The Guard allows excluding processes and file object from scanning. With
    · version 10 it is now possible to add process/file object with more than 15
    · characters. It is also possible now to use wildcards and have process/file names with full file path.
    · 
    · Rootkit detection now available for 64 bit systems
    · The detection of rootkit which was up to now only available for 32 bit systems
    · is now also available for 64 bit systems.
    · 
    · More configuration options in standard mode
    · In version 10 quite a number of configuration options have been moved from the expert configuration to the standard configuration.
    · Thus it is now possible to configure the product to a very large extent within
    · the standard configuration, leaving the expert configuration for those
    · situations where a very specific configuration of the product is needed
    · 
    · Express installation
    · The Avira AntiVir now offers a new express installation allowing installing the
    · products very quickly. Once “express installation” has been chosen it is only 3 further clicks to completely install the product.

    · Recommend a product
    · Customers who want friends, relatives or other people to become a member of the Avira family and benefit from one of the best security products can now do so very easily and even profit from it. Avira AntiVir now allows recommending the product. Just click on the “recommend the product” entry in the menu and login to your Avira customer account.
    · 
    · Improved slide-up system
    · The slide-ups that the product produces at times have been enhanced and now show a close and a minimize button in the upper right corner thus preventing that important information may be overlayed by the slide-up. When minimized there is now an additional icon in the task bar allowing to maximize the slide-up again.

    Nice


    As Baserk :thumb: also noticed ONLY in here http://www.softpedia.com/progChangelog/AntiVir-Personal-Edition-Changelog-6527.html does it say

    Looks like SP hasn't done their homework on the first link, and just copy/pasted from Avira's info. Guess some people will DL without reading everything and will wonder where ProActiv etc is :D
