Avira ProActiv is currently not available for 64 bit systems.

The behaviour-based detection technology Avira ProActiv, which is integrated into the products "Avira Antivirus Premium", "Avira Internet Security" and "Avira Professional Security" is only available for 32 bit systems.

There are technical reasons which prevent the support on 64 bit systems:
The module right now uses so called kernel hooks to monitor the system. Those kernel hooks are unfortunately not available on 64 bit systems.

Work on a technical solution for all 64 bit systems is in progress. However, at the moment no statement concerning the availability can be given.
