11. You'll see the install files being unpacked and installed..shown by a green bar going across the screen and hundreds of files wizzing by as they are unpacked. Then preparing installation shows.
12. Welcome to setup for Avira shows click next on your paper write down any tips they give on how to use it..eg to customize protection settings go to extended threat categories in the products configuration. then click next
13. Your shown a licence agreement..take a quick look at it..check its ok for you to use ie its for private use only..if your a business you need to buy a copy, you cant sell this software etc, if you agree tick the i accept box then click next, then tick the i accept its for private use only and click next

16. Your told by Avira your registration was successful, write down where you can get info on the product www.free.av.com click next
17.The Avira software begins being setup..installed you'll see the green bar going from left to right again. It says its performing the requested operations. Then installing components shows. ( annoyingly a windows pop up says your computer may be at risk antivir desktop is turned off) Again Zonealarm pops up saying Antivirus scheduler is trying to access the trusted zone sched.exe ( check my list of what you can allow at the bottom of this long article under my Zonealarm notes and decide what to do)
18. Install complete shows show read me is ticked..always read read me files, then click finish on the Avira window. read the read me txt file. write down where to get support for each product you install in this case www.Avira.com/classic-support and to contact them use www.free-av.com/contact. now close the read me file. Antivirus software will go wrong if you have more than one Antivirus product on a pc so now go remove any other Antivirus you had before you got this eg if you were using another companys product. Go to start/ control panel/add or remove programmes and find any old Antivirus eg Avg or Norton etc and remove it..click change/remove and the old software will be removed, tick remove user settings and objects in the virus vault if uninstalling Avg, at this point a small pop up window says Antivir may be out of date click the yellow window to update Avira.

23.Perform a short scan is ticked click next , thank you it says so click finish. After a little while..
24. Luke filewalker begins a very quick scan hopefully itll say detections 0 !!! when its finished click end
At the same time Zonealarm says product updater is trying to access the trusted zone, update.exe ...again check if you can allow this from my notes. Then Notification tool avnotify.exe pops up...you should know where to look by now to see if you can allow this. Then an advert called notifier of Avira antivir personal apears..just close it by clicking the top right corner x button...every day Avira trys to get you to buy their professional Antivirus but the free version is fine.
25. If your old Antivirus says you need to restart your pc to fully uninstall it at this point you could do this. You have now installed the latest Antivirus..you still need to update it so that it can catch the latest viruses and configure it to scan how ever often you want eg every day at 2pm
26. After restarting your pc ( if you did this ) a pop up from Avira says you last updated more than 7 days ago, whether u restarted your pc or not right click the Avira logo in the system tray ( bottom right of pc screen showing all your active software.) The logo is red with a white umbrella if you hover your mouse over( move your mouse over it) it it'll say Avira right click on it then click start update. It may say your programme is up to date. (these next steps go to show that writing a list of steps is almost impossible as for some reason they rarely happen at the same time in exactly the same order..so some of the info is a repeat as ive already told you some of these steps but im leaving them here to show the order you might get them !. Zonealarm says product updater is trying to access the trusted zone update.exe ..again view my Zonealarm allow list decide if you can allow this ( you can ) then Avira searches for updates and will download them and attach them to itself so it can detect the very latest viruses. Zonealarm now says avnotify.exe wants access by now you should know what to do when your firewall asks you something. A window displaying an advert for Aviras paid for product shows..you can close this..once a day youll get an advert from Avira trying to sell you its products..i just close them.
27. Right click the Avira taskbar logo click configure Antivir select scan all files click apply then ok close this window now or it mat self close.
28. Right click the logo again click start Antivir, click view ( up the top left ) then admin/scheduler where it says complete scan daily right click daily at 12 noon click edit job, name and description of job shows click next, type of job shows /scan job available profiles shows/local hard disks click next, then change the settings to a time your most likely to have your pc on eg daily at 4pm, keep it set to scan daily but choose a time of your choice tick repeat job if time has expired then click next, selection of the display mode shows /maximized then click finish. The Avira window is still open so Tick to enable this daily scan. then close the window.
29. Right you have a new Antivirus product installed and set to scan daily and update itself daily so it can catch the latest viruses...now its time to scan your computer before the first scheduled scan to make sure your pc is clean right now and therefore safe to use !
30. Right click the logo in the taskbar again click start Antivir and click scan system now the 2nd main item down on the right, a full pc scan may take 45 minutes if your pc has say 450,000 files on it so you can just leave it running and go do something else. You must however check what the results are for your scans to see how often your getting viruses and to check the Antivirus has caught and removed the problems.
