Wonder if they will implement from their current products but on the meantime likely an on demand scanner for it.
So that's where Avira Protection Cloud enters.Outsmarting the malware of the future requires building a huge community-powered knowledge base containing malware data and clean applications.
Quick scan does not start, very long "Preparing to scan..." time
If the TechPreview client scan does not start scanning files within 30-60 seconds and seems to be "stuck" with the GUI saying "Preparing to scan...", the reason can be an file guard (on-access file scanning) of some installed anti-malware product. The delay is caused by the high amount of file operations that the TechPreview client is doing to prepare the quick scan file list, enumerating critical locations of the system. These file operations are intercepted by the file guards which increases the overhead alot.
A possible solution is to temporarily disable any file guard/on-access file scanning during the scan of the TechPreview client.
Please remember to reenable the file guard after the scan is finished!
The Protection Cloud Technical Preview has ended. We would like to thank you for your participation. Through your valuable feedback, we were able to improve our Avira Protection Cloud technology. We would like to point you to the beta of our new Version 2013 which has Avira Protection Cloud technology built in.
Thanks, the Avira Protection Cloud team.
