Innovations in SP2 for AV10

Advanced process protection

For better self-protection of AntiVir, the advanced process protection is enabled by default.

Avira AntiVir Professional - General - Security

The enhanced process protection will also be activated by default in case of an update to SP2 if it has not been configured before or if the dialog General → Security has been opened at least once before.

Updater.exe signature

The AntiVir updater now has a correct VeriSign signature:

AntiVir updater - Advanced - VeriSign signature
