  1. Sometimes when we download. Does this thing comes out? Because after my cousin finished downloading some stuff in my labtop, this Avira AntiVir Protection Mode pops up and I can’t access Avira.

    Thank you. Your article really helped me a lot.

  2. Wei: this thing messes up with Avira only. Try downloading anti-malware programs. As far as we have tested the trojan, it does not stop other programs from launching. Just make sure you do not uninstal/reinstall avira, as that trojan is nasty and might cause system failure in such cases.

  3. The problem is; shall I buy a new installer from a shop or use the same disc that I use to install Avira? I didn’t understand, sorry.

  4. Indeed this shit is in my computer aswel… What you have to do is download a spyware app mentionned here…with other device and transform it into the cimp by usb stick or mobile … Install and remive tgis shit… Never install a shitty antivirus our other free shitantivirus like avira again… Or
