Have auto upgrades from 2013 to 2014 resumed yet?
Program version 220.127.116.119 released today.
12.81 MBytes / 166 Files (for Avira Antivirus Suite):
What if you just disable the toolbar in Firefox (without uninstalling it or tweak the registry)? Will the Web Guard still be active?
That's a good question, but I have no idea. I didn't try that out. One problem is that you would probably end up with the toolbar in all the browsers you have installed.
The registry trick is, in my opinion, the more elegant way. It's really simple. You merge the .reg file before you install. Then when you install choose custom installation. Select Web Guard and then later uncheck the Ask junk and it actually works.
On the raymond.cc site just enter Avira in the search box and you'll find it straight away.
Good Morning! Avira I.S.2014...just updated with 172 files this morning. Really impressed with the latest build...no bugs...very stable...it's a keeper! Sincerely...Securon
I'm Just wondering, has any Avira user seen any benefit of the introduction of the 'Avira Protection Cloud' ? is there a difference in detection rates etc ?
The last post on this thread claims the registry fix only fixes the UI
I just read that and he's speculating, obviously without having tried it out himself.
He mentions that the other guy didn't select the Web Guard for installation. If that's true, then he might be right. OTOH, I did select it and unselected the Ask stuff. Web Guard showed up in the configuration and in services.msc the service was also there and started. Hope that helps.
It does, thanks.
In my experience it has paused a few installers several times for about 10 seconds asking if the files could be examined, the installation resuming automatically once it was over. I can only guess it is a great improvement towards 0 day malware, and the latest AV Comparatives dynamic test has confirmed a definite improvement in the results.
Have a look at the september 2013 real-world test graph from AV-Comparatives.
The new AV-Test results are not published yet.
I did the first live tests of the two new cloud detection modules the last couple of days, very nice detection gain on top of the existing cloud detection modules. The AI 3.0 is coming along very well too, realtime retraining of all sample sets, yummy! In 6000 dimensions
I have a question: there have been a lot of updates lately and now I see in the realtime scan configuration that the choice of scanning on read/write, write or read isn't there anymore. What's up with that?
Simply it's enabled by default, can't disabled it anymore.
I'm very impressed, excellent results indeed. Well done Avira.
I've installed the free version with the registry tweak and so far so good except...
The time that goes from when I type the password at boot to when I see the desktop went up from about 5 seconds (with Avast) to about 25 sec.
Also the screen will freeze two or three times for fractions of a second, which makes me a bit nervous
same here the only issue i see with it it doesnt seem to have slowed browsing or anything else but boot up has slowed a lot..
Avira: Blocked 99,8% =
This is AVC, not AV-Test....
100% is only a matter of time.
Really impressed, that's a step in the right direction ! Very good news. What is interesting is that User dependent is reduced to 0%.
Really want to see what Avira is preparing for the future...
It's been a while since I last tested out Avira, but WOW, does it ever slow down booting to the Windows desktop. It's quite significant the amount of time before the little umbrella shows as active as well. Even after updating definitions and multiple reboots, same thing. With Avast or Bitdefender this isn't even noticeable.
Please have a look:
I'm facing the same problem as well.
Any comments Stefan?
As an experiment I disabled update when an internet connection is made. I haven't measured anything scientifically, but subjectively it boots a little faster and the umbrella opens quicker. YMMV.
