Welcome to the 10th incarnation of Avira Premium Security Suite. As
usual, we have integrated numerous enhancements and new features, which
bring more security for your computer and make it easier for you to use
Avira AntiVir ProActiv
Starting with Version 10, we integrated the new behavior-based detection technology. Read more details under "Avira AntiVir ProActiv".
Improved User Interface
We have revised and updated the user interface. Among other things, we have optimized the grouping of configuration settings for Normal mode and Expert mode. You are more than welcome to give us your feedback on this.
Time scheduling in the Parental Control
You can now set surfing time restrictions in the Parental Control module, by selecting the exact surfing hours or allocating specific time limits.
Generic malware removal and the new AntiVir Guard
The Guard can now repair your system, in case of active malware. Basically, when malware is detected, the access is denied and you can press the Remove button in the slide-up or view more details first, before removing it. The malware removal should now work even in case of unknown, active malware.
Optional email footer
AntiVir MailGuard can now insert an email footer to the sent emails, specifying that the email is 「Checked by AntiVir「 and eventually adding other optional texts.
Please note that currently this beta product can only be installed on 32-bit systems.
Windows XP 32 Bit, SP 2 or later
Windows Vista, 32 Bit
Windows 7, 32 Bit
Please uninstall any other antivirus software you have on your system, before installing this beta version.
Make sure that your PC is connected to the Internet during the beta test.
Avira AntiVir ProActiv
ProActiv is a new Avira technology for detecting Malware based on its behavior. If there are activities of virulent origin, Avira AntiVir ProActiv blocks them. Avira AntiVir ProActiv completes the existing signature-based, generic and heuristic detection processes, with an advanced method meant to effectively protect you against infection with unknown malware. Please note, that due to its behavior-based approach, Avira AntiVir ProActiv cannot guarantee 100% malware detection. It may happen that some malware is not detected or that some clean files are erroneously reported as malware.
Data transfer and data protection
Avira AntiVir ProActiv sends the files it rated as potentially dangerous to an Avira Server. The affected files are exclusively executable programs and scripts. No emails, personal documents or similar data files are transferred. The transferred information is exclusively used for a closer malware analysis and for improving the rules set.
The data transfer is absolutely anonymous and does not allow any conclusion on the sender. Even indirect details, such as protocol or the computer's IP address, are not stored. Only a small group of Avira malware researchers can access the transmitted files, to analyze the malware, in a hermetically isolated network. The data will not be forwarded to third parties.
With the installation of the beta version, you give Avira permission to perform an automatic background transfer of the files being detected as potentially dangerous, to its backend system. Similar to the usage of an online backup solution, there is no infringement when uploading copyrighted files. If you do not agree with the upload, you can deactivate this function in the configuration: "Guard | ProActiv | Join the Avira ProActiv Community".
Objectives of the beta test
We want to check how stable and efficient the system currently is. Avira Premium Security Suite has a lot of new features, for which problems with other programs or with certain system configurations cannot be excluded. Please test the following items with higher priority and send us your feedback:
Serious loss in performance
Incompatibility with other software
False positives (supposed malware in „clean「 software)
Functionality of the new features
General feedback regarding the new features
Suggestions, other issues
We are also waiting your feedback regarding the detection performance of the program. For the beginning, the test program has just a basic set of rules. So it is to be expected, that only a few files will be reported as malware. Please turn your attention mainly to false positives, i.e. to programs falsely identified as malware. During this phase, the system sends us data, which help us enhance and fine-tune the set of rules (see also "Data transfer and data protection" above). These extended rule sets will be made available in a further phase of the beta test.
