Train with Safe Mode is most useful for gamers where they don’t want to be interrupted by alerts in the background. I never use this so I’m not experienced on it.
Clean PC Mode is best suited for what it states: a PC that is clean of malware because it treats an existing file on your PC as safe and learns its actions with info alerts at the bottom right corner and you’ll receive alerts for new (certain*) files introduced to the PC.
Certain* = by default, I think .exe and .dll files because these are generally considered to be potential malware or suspicious files. If Defense+ by default includes other files like .zip, .txt, .bmp, etc., most people wouldn’t be able to stand the high # of alerts :o
I am having problems with Winpatrol and Avira home premium not starting up some times when logging in. Funny thing is. It shows in the processes. But not in the lower task bar. Even the Avira splash screen shows up when logging in. This did not start up until Defensive+ was turned on. Possible bug?
Hiya KoRn,i`ve never used winpatrol so cant advise on it,but back to making Avira a Trusted App.
From the main page click on Defence+/now Advanced.
You will get 4 options,choose the top one"Computer Security Policy"
This will give you a window with all the executables known to D+
Scroll down until you see any Avira executables,then right click on it and choose “Edit”
Another window will open where you check on “use a predefined policy”
To the right of this you have the drop down options choose “Trusted Application”
Now “Apply” to close all windows
You should end up with this
Thanks buddy! Looks like this might be the ticket for the fix. Will report back later. Do you suggest doing this with other apps that run and start up? So far these are the only 2 giving me the problems when Defensive+ is on.
