As Farger writes, you can disable the autorun file block but don't do it permanently, just temporary. This function of AVIRA is very useful and 100% effective when it comes to malware that spreads automatically via removable media such as USB flash drives.

I have the same problem and get same message when I plug in or turn on my external harddrive, try to use a USB Flashdrive or basically plug any USB device into my computer.

On some occasions,I get a message asking what program do I want to use to open the file.Ex:When download pictures from my camera it asks what program I want to open it with but I was using this before I started using Avira.

Do I click on the link Farger wrote?

thanks for the topic Bluelapis,

not able to unblock autorun

After I open Avira Control panel,click on Extras,Configuration,activate Expert mode,then go to general>Security

I do not have the option of unchecking Block autostart function,but the instructions I'm getting are for the Avira AntiVir Premium 2012 while I'm using Avira AntiVir Personal-Free Antivirus version.

There are two catagories I have to chose from are Update and Product Protection,but the autostart section does not appear.

I have Garmin Lifetime Updater installed. I wonder if this means it's being blocked or if it's something else? " In accordance with security guidelines, the Administrator has blocked access to file '\Device\HarddiskVolume2\AUTORUN.INF'."
