    I've read the help, but does anyone have any real-life examples of what the various "extended threat" categories detect?

    I see they have a set of defaults ticked, but for example I'm surprised "Security & Privacy Risk" isn't enabled by default - I'm wondering what the reason(s) for this might be?

    Because No-DVD patches are detected then as a threat :rolleyes:

    I am amazed ' fraudulent software ' is not ticked by default. I read on the Avira forum, that this blocks rogue AV's

    Actually I hadn't spotted that one as it's in the program but not in the help or the manual.

    So why wouldn't it be enabled?
