GOODBYE AVIRA; HELLO AVAST!

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
WAS very happy with Avira under XP. Good detection rate,
better than I expected for a free program.

Then as with most growing companies, things started to slide.
First they are giving me error messages on update so I have
to hunt for the solution and new registration key. Is it free
or not? Make up you F**king minds?

Then, under Windows 7 with Comodo installed-makes no
difference whether defense or proactive is engages or
not-damn Avira program latest ver reboots my computer about a
third of the way into a scan. Researched it and tried earlier
version 9.xx, same problem.

Once a program starts rebooting your machine that's a good
indication the developers/company does not know what the hell
they are doing.

Installed Avast, no problem since. works fine, faster than
Avira. BTW anyone know what cttunei.dll is, could not find a
reference online, supposedly contains Win32_Malware-gen which
was set to system ownership requiring modification before
Avast could get rid of it.

Goodbye Avira, Hello Avast. You were nice while you lasted-
kinda a like an American woman who you marry, heheheh.

That's not necessarily true.
Some years ago it took 2 months for Avast to negate a VBS:Zulu False Positive
declaration
on some Microsoft web pages.

2 months to negate a False Positive is NOT prompt.

What error messages on updates?
What new registration key?
I never had such problems with Avira.

But if you can't handle a simple free product as Avira, I suppose it is
better you to find your luck somewhere else.
