Avira Real-Time Protection displays timeout messages

The cause may be that you have not set any (reasonable) limits for on-access archive scanning yet. To make these settings, open the Settings menu → select PC Protection → and Real-Time Protection.

If Scan archives is activated the following options must also be activated:

[x] Max. recursion depth 1
[x] Max. number of files 10
[x] Max. size (KB) 1000
