Changing The Way Avira Antivir Starts

There is always "I change my mind, I want Avira to start early!" Or "Avira is starting early, and it is slowing down my computer!" The question is: how do you change the way it starts?

Start -> Run -> Type cmd.

In cmd type as follows:

1. cd *enter*

2. cd c:\Program Files *enter*

3. cd Avira *enter*

4. cd Antivir Desktop *enter*

5. avconfig.exe /WIZARD *enter*

If you did this correctly, you should see a dialogue box like the one below come up.

Click next several times until you see the "Guard Start Mode." You can select either "Normal start" or "Secure Start."

Get Old Firefox Addons To Work With Newer Builds

1. Open Firefox, type "about:config" into the location bar (without quotes)

2. Click "I'll be careful I promise" when the confirmation page comes up.

3. Below "preference name" right click, select new -> boolean.

4. Call it "extensions.checkCompatibility" (without quotes). Set the value to false.

What this does is disables Firefox from checking addon compatibility. So (after the tweak) when you install an older addon to a newer build of firefox, firefox won't check to see if it's compatible with it and will allow you to install.

Remove .net Framework Assistant From Firefox

(note:before doing step one, firefox should be closed)

1. Locate C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\Windows Presentation Foundation\DotNetAssistantExtension

2. Delete everything in the folder.

3. Type about:config in the firefox address bar. Under filter type: "general.useragent.extra.microsoftdotnet" (without quotes)

4. Right click on the entry and select reset.

5. Restart Firefox.
