From what site did you download the Avira update?

What signaled you that Avira needed updating?

I agree with you. Seems like there a more than a few Avira
developers/employees here trying to protect their scams. ALmost always
companies take a GOOD program and make it worse adding junk, bloat and
intrusive crap the user does not need and does not want. I freqnently
find myself looking for earlier versions of programs that have not been
screwed up yet. Until I get off my butt and install BSD or a similar
real operating system I am stuck with Windoze registry.

You are a moron.
Just because other people don't agree with your ranting,
you call them 'employees' of Avira.
Silly boy.

I hope you have enough money to buy a new PC every year.
With your expertise of (or lack of) Windows and software,
you will need it.

If you can't handle the heat, stay out of the kitchen.
Have a nice day.

You are not going to like Avast either.  I had the paid version, as a  
matter of fact I still have six months left on the contract, but removed  
Avast because of the same reasons you stated.

Akamai Technology is automatically allowed through the firewall, and  
every Internet connection goes through Google, and Avast stores tracking  
cookies on your computer.

Avast is supposed to be about stopping a virus, and protecting your  
privacy while online, especially while shopping and banking.  There can  
be no privacy when Google is involved.

I now use Microsoft Security Essentials, and will do so until I can find  
a security suite that doesn't track every move you make.
