    In Avira, do you have to manually run scans? I have 8 installed and I just leave it and let it do its thing.

    Also, running on XP Pro, is there a benefit to upgrading to version 9 and since avnotify is already "denied" for 8, will it hold on upgrade?

    I set Avira to update 6 times a day and do a system scan once a week. I think the default is one update per day and weekly system scanned that isn't checked.

    Although I didn't notice much difference, Avira 9 supposed to also look for malware. I did the upgrade from 8 to 9 and didn't have to disable the nag screen, but did have to redo disabling the start up screen. That said, I have two entries for avnotify, one disallowed and one unrestricted.
