Thank You, Tufenuf !!!!! Avira Went In...
like a dream without ANY warnings, errors or problems of any kind!!
Got full update & ran initial scan without problem. Has great configure
options (under Expert settings) and thorough reports (which I may scale back some).
Only difficulties so far:
1) Had to reconfig my OE Mail after removing AVG personal Mail scanner
to get STMP connectivity back (POP in-coming was ok).
2) When I run MBAM.exe, every time it opens a file (like Trojan Simulator or EICAR test or Magic Jellybean) to scan it,the Avira Guard
pops up and hauls these known & trusted items off to jail!!!
Haven't found a way to tell it to ignore them in future or leave them alone & just report finding them. Apparently when this happens, it halts the MBAM scan waiting for me to tell it what to do!!
Came back 2 hours later & MBAM was only 1/2 way thru! Normally 36 minutes for full scan both HDs. As a certain Bear would say "Oh Bother!". LOL!
Anyway, much impressed so far and guess I'll just leave those files in quarantine as I have back up copies off machine & can restore if I like.
Thanks so much again 'cause I wouldn't have attempted Avira without your reported success!!! Sandy!
