This link installs the old Avira. So you may not be able to use the new one.Now if I install Avira via this link, how can I activate it if I purchased the 1 euro offer?
The issue is Avira never sent me a product key. Instead the license is linked to my account, so apparently there is no way to activate it on the old bloat-free installer.This link installs the old Avira. So you may not be able to use the new one.
For this old installer, at the time of installing it gives you an option to enter your Pro license key. I never tried Pro, so don't know if you'll get the new version after that.
The detection in there, is a Bullguard BB sentry (Mem alloc) , atleast I'm happy to see them, finally incorporate their competetor tech into their products after a long long sloppy years.I could be wrong here but this is also the first time, in all my tests, that I've seen Avira detect a sample in-memory, after execution.

It seems Avira has made some massive improvements to detecting malware post-execution, which traditionally Avira has not been great at.
Norman - a blast from the past. I'd forgotten all about them. If my memory isn't a waste of space completely I think they used to provide an online scan too too.It is/used to be an antivirus company based out of Norway. It got at some point acquired by AVG Technologies, whom in their turn got acquired by Avast Software s.r.o.
Just an FYI: if you dont want the VPN or "speedup" to run at startup, simply disable their startup items via Autoruns.
Btw, has anyone else experienced Avira sometimes qurantine malware when saved to disk and sometimes only when they are executed? Found it to be weird behavior
Might be the reason, signatures for files that are saved to disk, while files detected on-execution are for files detected via the cloud, as using signatures and the cloud at the same time would, in practice, cause increased resource usage.Yes, I did. I tried the new version for a few weeks and I noticed that behavior as well, part of the reason why I decided to switch off of it. That and their cloud only seemed to work on execution as well which I didn't find favorable either.
