    IMO I think it,s now time for Avira to get rid of this type of nag. The nag of Avira might look like a rouge too.

    Their v10(BETA) interface is somewhat polished one but still remembers me of the previous UI;)

    When I checked the link it only showed the info page there was no activity occurring when I clicked on try now button so I think it is safe for the users but still I too wished that it was flagged as an exploit:isay:
