How to configure avira antivir

  hiwatt 13:00 10 Oct 2008

Hi folks.I've recently switched to avira from avg and was wondering if any long time avira users can give me any tips on how to best configure it?I usually just leave things in their default settings but I read you can configure it to make it better at catching viruses?When you click on configure you can choose all files or use smart extensions.Which is best.Also is the classic edition better?Any advice is appreciated.Thankyou.

I use antivir & find it realy good & relatively simple to use!! although am usure what the guard is!! is it a type of firewall that, incase i accidentaly click on something viral or malicious, it will stick it in the virus vault before it attacks my machine!
