    I'm using the free version and was wondering if the anti-virus is good at removing the virus and trojans that pop up. I ask this because when Avira does detect something, I'm only given the option to write to log or quarantine the virus. This is to say different from my last AV which was Kaspersky.

    well this seems to be that you are getting a heuristc warning. in this case antivir does not offer options like repaire, delete ... cause it could be a false positive. please send this file to heuristik2@avira.com and it will be checked.

    There will be no reply on heuristik2 for about 3 weeks as I am on holiday - with no internet access. :doubt:

    Ah thanks everyone for the quick support. Is there no difference at all between the free and paid version of AntiVir with the exception of the spyware/adware protection?

    The Premiun version also adds a Mail Guard and better update servers.
