While offering protection against potential threats, Avira Internet Security can also interfere with benign operations. Avira’s firewall not only restricts incoming and outgoing Internet traffic, it also controls changes to the system itself. If the program prevents you from adding or removing programs or devices, applying hotfixes, or performing other administrative actions, temporarily disable the software. You can re-enable protection at any time after you complete your task. Although Avira AntiVir Personal has many great features, there is a problem. Whenever you update it or when a security event occurs, it asks you to upgrade to the Premium version. Most of us use this antivirus simply because it is free and we will never update it. It is therefore better to disable the nagging notification.

- Go to Start> Control Panel. Then go to Administrative Tools> Local Security Policy.
- Select Software Restriction Policy> Additional Rules in the left pane. Right click on it and click on New Path Rule. Find the location of Avira Antivirus now and select the avnotify.exe file.
