IDM - Configure antivirus settings


I'm using IDM for my downloads and would like to configure it with Avira, so that my downloaded items are scanned by my antivirus. In IDM options I'm asked to enter the path to my antivirus, any idea how to get it?


Click on Start > Run > msconfig
  • Go to the Startup tab and look for the entry corresponding to Avira:
  • "C:\Program Files (x86)\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\avgnt.exe" /min

Thanks to glg29 for this tip.
