Remove Avira Password

This is a small howto on how to bypass the password protected security build in Avira Antivir

  • Go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Avira\AntiVir Workstation
  • Open AVWIN.INI with your favorite text editor
  • Remove the lines that start with 'securityextention=' and 'password=' in the [COMMON] section
  • Change the value of the 'protect*=' lines the same section from '1' to '0'
  • Rightclick on the Avira icon in the system tray, select 'start update' to restart the Avira processes and reread the configuration


Tested to work on Avira Antivir version 8.
