How do I change the language in the Antivirus user interface?

If any Avira Antivirus product is already installed on your computer, there is no possibility to switch in between different languages out of the product.

In case you want to change the language of the Avira product, then you need to perform a reinstallation of the product with the proper language.

There is a reboot necessary after the uninstall process has finished.
