    Everybody can go there and read what they wrote?

    "their own page" it's a closed area, for Beta testers / Beta Center users only........

    no offense but you seriously need to chill.. ever hear of TWITTER

    https://twitter.com/avira_betatest its posted right there for anyone to read the specific comment he quoted to which i said correct THAT comment is posted on their own twitter page. besides the fact that the beta info AND changelog info can be found just by searching for it. just because its a closed beta (to which im a tester) does not almost ever guarantee it stays that way. look at the avast 2014 info leaked out. it was only for evangelists not even normal beta testers and someone leaked it. seriously there is NO reason to tell anyone to keep their mouth shut this is a friendly place and even the beta build can easily be downloaded if you search hard enough for it..so going further im will not argue with you over this. if stephan wants to remove those posts by all means let him come and do so or anyone from avira which i dont see them doing. i for one gave up on them plain and simple. till they can fix the issues i have with it i gave up. i do continue to test but only test. there is no company clodes beta or not i have almost ever seen where the info was not posted early or leaked to either message boards or other forums etc... happens all the time.

    Like these tweets,that are open to millions?

    @Betatester could you please try to reproduce this issue with the latest build (4042). This should have been fixed between 4033 and 4042.

    @Betatester we had an issue with Web Protection in the 4033 build. Please deactivate it temporarily and download again.
    Avira Betatest ‏@avira_betatest 9 Aug

    correct and in going through some older tweets people even have stated some of the changelog at times so this is not as closed as you think it might be apparently. i dont ever use twitter myself but its there. just discuss avira here and besides your not in charge of the beta dept. leave that up to avira they have a few people here at wilders, and your not a mod here.

    The update will take about a week to roll-out to all users, all products, all supported languages. So, don’t worry if you can’t see this change immediately.

    You boys done fighting? Alright then...

    If I understand correctly, it's nice to know that they make the expert mode to be always on. The article title is a little bit misleading though, it should be "Goodbye Dumbed-down Mode". Hopefully they will fix all (or at least most) of the unresolved bugs in the near future.

    P.S. : Just know about the latest stable version. :oops:

    Avira Scan Starting Too Slowly

    It takes more than 10 second for Avira to start a scan(manual, or mini-scan after every detection).
    When the window opens,it freezes on 0%(10-13 second). but when it starts,it is fast.
    I dont know why this happens,but I know it can cause some problem
    ( especially when Avira wants to repair an infected system.because after every detecion it opens a new window(system scan,system repair,mini-scan....whatever it s called) and before it starts to operate,another detection will come and this "faulty loops" may cause the system to freeze.)



    I discussed it on their forum and I got no good conclusion.:

    Yes..... but it's better to clarify: Real-time APC finally here in paid products only.

    There is no APC in Avira Free:

    Very nice to hear. What is the current ad situation with the free version? What does the ad look like, how often is it displayed, etc.?

    Rather pointless considering what avast offers in free version as well. Same for AVG...
