About this portable version
This version of Portable Avira AntiVir Personal 8.1.00.331 (Virus definitions file 7.00.6.111 -03/09/2008) was created with Thinapp, is fully portable and can be updated. It does not conflict with resident (active) protection software as it runs from a sandbox.
Before launching the application for the first time, place the executable "Avira AntiVir Personal.exe" within a folder of its own. I suggest you create a folder "Avira AntiVir Personal 8.1.00.331" (the downloaded archive will extract to such folder by default).
Launching the executable will create a folder called "Avira AntiVir Personal" within the host folder". Such folder - also called a sandbox - will hold data related to the application, including definitions updates, logfiles, aso.
The online definitions update has been disabled as it conflicts with the portability of the application. You can however easily update the files within the sandbox by performing a manual update.
