    Hi,

    I want to install Avira Free Antivirus 2015 without active protection, like scanner from time to time.

    Is this possible with other Antivirus active installed?

    If you want to use the Avira as on demand scanner only, try the Avira PC Cleaner instead.

    -------------------------------
    If you want to use the Avira Antivirusas on demand scanner only, perform the "Modify" installation and uncheck the "Real-Time Protection" module =

    Obviously the rest Avira services will remain active, that's why I recommend you the Avira PC Cleaner.

    Can you specify specific drive letters to scan?

    Panda cloud AV just scans what it thinks it needs to and so doesnt scan everything :(

    No you can't. You can run normal scan (which scans specific folders on system drive) or full scan (which scans whole computer).
