  1. Note: I post this info for members, because Avira Free AV is recommended by TS.

    Since today at 11:30 O'Clock a product update is available for AntiVir Personal Free, Premium and Premium Security Suite in English and German over the automatic update.
    This update has a size of round about 7.6 Mb and needs a system restart after the installation. The restart will be announced before the executed update.

    The SP1 brings you the following improvements beside others:

    New scanner profil "Scn for active rootkits and malware"
    No avgntflt timeouts because of activated / deactivated ProActiv anymore
    No ProActiv warnings anymore because of several actions
    Outgoing emails are not discarded anymore under certain circumstances and T-Online
    Firewall application rules are not lost under Windows 2000 anymore
    Fixed crash in AntiVir Scanner "Luke Filewalker"
    Correction of ressource consumption in Firewall application
    Correction of MailGuard connected to IMAP
    Correction of MailGuard for use with Thunderbird 3.1

    To check whether the SP1is already installed or not please check the version number. The version number can be viewed over AntiVir Control Center :: Menu Help :: About... :: Register Version information. SP1 has the following number:

    Avira Premium Security Suite:
    Avira AntiVir Premium:
    AntiVir Personal Free:

    P.S. The infamous nag screen seems to have ceased too! :)
