Detection :: Scanner: Interactive action mode

If you selected Interactive mode as the action mode when a virus is detected, you will receive an alert containing a list of the affected files when the scan is complete (see the configuration section Scanner::Scan::Action on detection).  
You can use the content-sensitive menu to select an action to be executed for the various infected files. You can execute the standard actions for all infected files or cancel the Scanner.

If reporting is enabled, the Scanner enters each detection in the Report file.


Detection, Errors, Warnings

Detailed information, action options for the detected viruses and messages will be displayed in the Detection, Errors and Warnings tabs:

  • Detection:

Object: File name of the affected file

Detection: Name of the detected virus or unwanted program

Action: Selected action with which the affected file is to be handled

You can choose other actions for dealing with the malware from the context menu associated with the displayed action.

  • Error: Messages about errors that occurred during the scan

  • Alerts: Warnings relating to the viruses that were detected

The following information is displayed in the tooltip for the object: Name of the affected file and full path, name of the virus and action that is executed with the Apply Now button.

The default action of the Scanner is displayed as the action to be executed. The default action of the Scanner for handling affected files is to move the relevant files to quarantine.

Context menu actions

If the detection is a heuristic hit (HEUR/), an unusual runtime packer (PCK/) or a file with a hidden file extension (HEUR-DBLEXT/), in interactive mode only the options Move to quarantine and Ignore are available. In automatic mode the detection is automatically moved to Quarantine.
This restriction prevents the detected files, which may be a false alarm, being directly removed (deleted) from your computer. The file can be recovered at any time with the aid of the quarantine manager.


If this option is enabled, the Scanner repairs the affected file.

The option Repair can only be enabled if a repair of the detected file is possible.

Move to quarantine

If this option is enabled, the Scanner moves the file to quarantine. The file can be recovered from quarantine manager if it has an informative value or - if necessary - sent to the Avira Malware Research Center. Depending on the file, further selection options are available in the quarantine manager.


If this option is enabled, the file is deleted.


If this option is enabled, the Scanner renames the file. Direct access to these files (e.g. with double-click) is therefore no longer possible. Files can later be repaired and given their original names again.


If this option is enabled, the file is left as it is.

Always ignore

Action option for Guard detections: No further action is taken by Guard. Access to the file is permitted. All further access to this file is permitted and no further notifications will be provided until the computer is restarted or the virus definition file is updated.

If you ignore the options or select Always ignore, the affected files remain active on your computer. It may cause serious damage on your workstation!

Special features when infected boot sectors, rootkits and active malware are detected

Action options are available for repairing infected boot sectors when they are detected:

  • Repair 722 KB | 1.44 MB | 2.88 MB | 360 KB | 1.2 MB boot sector

These options are available for diskette drives.

  • Download repair tool: This option will take you to the Avira GmbH website, where you can download a special tool for detecting and removing boot sector viruses.

If you carry out actions on running processes, the processes in question are terminated before the actions are performed.
