I have Avira Antivirus Personal Free various. It has to be updated by 6 2011. I am not sure how to do it. I update every day but I still keep getting the message I have to update by 6 2011. I have got the website up where it says I can download the site. Will it be alright to download whilst I still have the same one running?
I cannot find register information. Are you telling me it might be best if I didn't use this antivirus. Do you think it is best to use a different one. If so which? I am not very confident on the PC. Downloading, my heart is always in my mouth. If you tell me what I should do would you tell me step by step please.
I have used Avira happily on W7 since switching from XP with AVG a year ago. You can disable the pop up ad mentioned by michaelw.(see below) Nearer the time you can update it - do not forget to run the normal update each day or so.
Remove or Disable Avira Free AntiVir “Upgrade to Premium” Popup Ad Notifier Nag Screen (avnotify)
Do you mean I can disable this? Will I be un installing it altogether? If the answer is yes I can remove this and still have the Avira free AntiVir. I will still be wondering how to update it in June as it keeps taking me to Cnet. Could you answer this also please.
Yes, you can disable the pop up - the free anti virus programme is unaffected. I expect nearer June that you can just re register. Same here but I am not bothered until nearer the time. Incidentally Avira saved me recently from a "install html reader" false claim on a google search page. Quickly removed the threat.If in doubt, download latest Avira to desktop; disconnect from internet; uninstall existing Avira; then run new installation from desktop. Reconnect to web; update Avira; remove pop up as above.
If it's alright I will leave the well alone. It will remind me nearer the date (June) to update. Will I have to disable the one I have now by coming off line then re registering it again come June? Thank you for your help
