Error message in log files during selective module installation of Avira Workstation

If the Avira Workstation (Avira Professional Security, Avira Antivirus Premium 2012, Avira Internet Security 2012) is installed only with the module "Avira Realtime Protection", the services for the "Avira Mail Protection" and the "Avira Web Protection" will be created with the start type "automatic" anyway.

This error has the effect that there is an attempt to start the services of the Mail- and Web Protection after a system reboot, which is of course not possible.

Errors like below will be logged in the Windows Event Viewer as a consequence of this non-functioning service start:

The service "Avira Mail Protection" has been terminated with the following service-specific error: 1 (0x1).


The service "Avira Mail Protection" has been terminated with the following service-specific error: 1 (0x1).

This will be recorded in the Avira log files:
