    That's inaccurate - SOME anti-spyware may have problems, but products like SUPERAntiSpyware have NO PROBLEM working the Avira.

    I'm using v9 with CIS and there are no problems up to now.There were none with v8 so I'm not expecting any either.

    Now that the free AntiVir as anti-spyware, what are the advantages of buying Premium? I don't use the WebGuard, as I'm waiting for them to improve its browsing impact.

    BTW: I bought Premium instead of renewing the Suite, and at least I'm supporting Avira.

    I have Antivir 9 on three of my machines along with Comodo firewall with defense+ and they all work fast and stable. I am extremely happy with that combo. :thumb:

    I was wondering if any speed, stability differences from default to extended I-Frame (Drive-by protection)? I noticed that there were some updates maybe for the WebGuard. I had a couple today, but the definition number is the same as yesterday.

    Thanks for that confirmation Nick. I thought as much anyway.

    Furthermore, SAS just scrape up a very bad malware from one of my other units i hadn't worked with for quite awhile and apparently was left on it during a research.

    SAS identified and removed it and the rest in the registry i was able to clean up with RegistryCrawler. A highly proficient anti-spyware indeed and a welcome tandem to team with AVIRA 9. You might say the best of both worlds because no AV of mine (NOD/Avira) picked up to this potential disruption to my system but a SAS scan certainly did. I was getting serious errors of missing files. ARGH!

    Fact Report Concluded (and with relief)

    I agree with trjam's response... "the reality is, you dont need it with this version. I mean if you want to slow your PC down with another app that is fine, but no, you dont need it. Avira will give you now, almost 100 percent protection and for some, that is 100 percent. Plain and simple."

    That is excellent advice. :thumb:

    Now that we literally have it from the horse's mouth, there shouldn't be any doubts. Avira catches all major Spyware so I just fail to see the reason to run any other except for on demand scan.

    Another Mod on that same thread, Barrie, adds...

    As for the people who state that they run SAS and Avira together and all is well, Steve adds...

    Can you offer some proof to that? As in applying a table load of malwares to test Avira's AS capabilities more wide ranged then say a SAS or even MBAM?

    I'm just trying to side on caution here, you could always use the more popular AS's as On-Demand, you don't have to go resident with them i think. It's a no brainer that resources would surely be taxed more.

    On the other hand, can we genuinely ATM without real proof really justify that an AV company (ANY) who is been years in tracking and identifying variant viruses become overnight on the same level or above to those AS's like MBAM and especially SAS who is been tracking and formulating variant detections and removals for years?

    To take absolutely nothing away from Avira it's my personal concensus that their AS is relatively if not brand new and it might take some time yet for them to reach the point where AS companies have been at for years.

    Your statement in the last paragraph begs the question and your premise is that Avira's AS is not up to par with other vendors. I think that it is up to par with other vendors- and I can see why some on this board that are promoting their specific Anti-Spyware programs are concerned. I agree with Arup, there is absolutely no need to run another resident AS along with Avira. But of course, if you don't trust Avira to do the job, you can always run any AS on-demand.
