Avira AntiVir Premium Help
Configuration :: General
Alert if last update older than n day(s)
In this box you can enter the maximum number of days allowed to have passed since the last update of Avira AntiVir Premium. If this number is exceeded, a warning is displayed in the Scheduler.
Show notice if the signature database with detection patterns is out of date
If this option is enabled, you will obtain an alert message if the virus definition file is not up-to date. With the help of the alert option, you can configure the temporal interval for an alert message if the last update is older than n day(s).
Full system scan
In this area you can configure the status display for the full system scan in Control Center under Overview:: Status.
‘Yellow’ status if older than n days
Enter an interval in days after which, if exceeded since the last complete system scan, the status display should switch to yellow. The specified interval must be shorter than the interval specified for red status. The standard value of seven days is recommended.
‘Red’ status if older than n days
Enter an interval in days after which, if exceeded since the last complete system scan, the status display should switch to red. The specified interval must be greater than the interval specified for yellow status. The standard value of 30 days is recommended.
If you specify 0 for both intervals, status monitoring is disabled for the complete system scan. A green symbol is always displayed. This setting should only be made in exceptional cases. If only set one interval to 0, the specification is discarded as invalid.
Prevent processes from being terminated
If this option is enabled, all AntiVir processes are protected against unwanted termination by viruses and malware or against 'uncontrolled' termination by a user e.g. via Task-Manager. This option is enabled as the default setting.
Protection is not yet available for 64-bit systems!
If process protection is enabled, interaction problems can occur with other software products. Disable process protection in these cases.
Protect files and registry entries from manipulation
If this option is enabled, all registry entries of AntiVir Premium and all program files (binary and configuration files) are protected from manipulation. Protection against manipulation entails preventing write, delete and, in some cases, read access to the registry entries or program files by users or external programs.
When this option is activated, changes can only be made to the configuration, including changes to scan or update requests, can only be made by means of the user interface.
