    Will it be possible to deactivate webguard in antivir premium if one wishes to do so?

    Re: AVIRA 8 Release Note

    Anyone knows whether blacklist updates of the 7-version will be available when not upgrading?

    Reason for asking is that the vendors are optimising their products for multi core CPU's which is a logical way to go. I tried AVG and AVIRA beta and found them okay on a dual core, but slower on an old single core CPU.

    I am not sure yet whether it was the beta status causing the difference or the newer architecture of the AV-engine's.

    Re: AVIRA 8 Release Note

    Yep. You did. :D No reason to buy Premium as the free version has all that is needed for a good AV. I reinstalled the free version a few days ago because I can't use Ver 8 beta as it conflicts with my video card driver, and maybe my nVidia board as well, and appears also to likely be the cause of Windows exempting Explorer from Hardware DEP. Ver. 7 is fine though.

    Do they use a proxy (like now in their suite) for the WebGuard in ver 8?

    Cheers

    Hopefully v8 will run as smooth as v7 is for me.
    Won't have to wait long to see I guess.

    Re: AVIRA 8 Release Note

    Well, it didn't for me. And I have heard NOTHING from Avira about the nasty bug. Not very impressed. 7 runs fine and I would prefer to keep it.

    So, 8 may run better for a lot of folks but you shouldn't make an assumption and tell people not to worry. Each user will have to see for themselves.

    Thanks for the news :)

    I do hope this new engine being more powerful than current one, which (i feel) can be easily terminated by malware :mad:

    Macstorm: An AV engine has nothing to do with process termination. An engine is all about the detection, file formats, archives, runtime unpacking...
