Re: Updates for St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 2009

Avira Antivir version 9 was released today, for:

  • Windows 2000 SP4 Service Rollup 1 (with at least 192 MB RAM) - or
  • Windows XP SP2 (32 or 64 bit)  (with at least 192 MB RAM) - or
  • Windows Vista SP1 (32 or 64 bit) (with at least 512 MB RAM)
  • Note:  Administrative rights are required for installation

    Note:  For those wishing to keep it (for whatever reason), Avira will continue to support version 8 of the affected products until 31 March 2010.

    Side Note:   I recall posting an earlier article that indicated avira 8 users will have to uninstall their old versions before installing the new version.   I would strongly suggest current users check into this carefully, before proceeding.   (I'm using Avast, so I can't be of help here).  for more information, see  http://www.avira.com/en/support/migrationsportal_av9.html
