A further step into achieving Windows 8 compatibility

As previously announced, we continue to improve the compatibility with Windows 8 of our products.

We have started yesterday the rollout of a new update for all our products in version 2013 which improves the compatibility with Windows 8 even more.

  • Avira Free AntiVirus build 2890
  • Avira AntiVirus Premium 2013 build 2890
  • Avira Internet Security 2013 build 2890

Here’s an extract of the new features of this update:

  • The popup with the warning displayed at the beginning of the Avira setup when running on Windows 8 has been removed
  • Windows Defender is now deactivated on Windows 8 after Avira installation was successfully completed
  • The products register and integrate with Windows 8 Action Center according to Microsoft’s requirements
  • Avira application binary files are built with more security features enabled
  • Product updates are now integrated into regular detection updates and all product update specific configuration options were removed

Please run a product update to get the latest version available. If you like to download the installation packages, you can find them on our website.
