Avira Antivir - Deleted infected items without confirmation

September 2016

If you want Antivir to automatically delete infected files:
  • Right click on the tiny umbrella icon in the system tray > Configure Antivir
  • Check "Expert Mode"
  • Go to Scanner > Scan > Action on detection
  • In the right pane switch mode from "Interactive" to "Automatic"
  • Select your Primary action (in our case- delete)
  • Check "Copy file to quarantine before action" to keep track of the potentially harmful files.
  • Click on Ok to validate



Note that the "Secondary action" is activated only if you use "repair" as primary one.
In the case the file can't be repaired , depending on how you configured the Secondary action, your Antivirus will either delete , ignore or send the file to quarantine.
