Avira AntiVir ProActiv is not available for 64 Bit systems at the moment


The new behaviour-based detection technology Avira AntiVir ProActiv, which is integrated into the new version 10 of the products Avira AntiVir Premium, Avira Premium Security Suite and Avira AntiVir Professional right now is only available for 32 bit systems. There are technical reasons which prevent the support on 64 bit systems:

The module right now uses so called kernel hooks to monitor the system. Those kernel hooks are not available on 64 bit systems. Work on a technical solution for Windows Vista and Windows 7 64 bit systems is in progress. However, at the moment no statement concerning the availability can be given.
