yes its an antivirus but why does it need internet access??? (possibly it is free for a reason that may pose a threat!?!), if blocked by a firewall it appears to deactivate the antivirus monitor but with no internet access available it runs fine OKI
It's Cool, Great & powerful AntiVirus, which is free!!! I would Download it If one is in need of an antivirus program MB STYLER
but you won't have the latest database so you won't be protected fully if you do not update it (via Internet)

The process for the guard feature of the AntiVir virus scanner. Not dangerous, quite the contrary actually. It lets AntiVir scan files that are opened for viruses giving additional protection against them.

Avira anti virus service: detect malware intrusion. Actually it does NOT need internet access, but only localhost socket. Using ZoneAlarm 6 you can block both local networks and internet access, it still runs smoothly, when blocking access to localhost using a more refined method (NetLimiter Pro "My Computer" fw blocking) then the avguard process cease to function properly (stalled shown under ProcessExplorer v10) with repeated sub process creation attempting to access Therefore there is no privacy or trojan kind risk, IMHO. Only boredom: use 55MB RAM & network IO scrolling! Gilles Maisonneuve

This is malware masquerading as anti-virus software. One of its processes show up on TaskManager as 2239218007:2822670458.exe. Deleting it won't help. It disables your real anti-virus software.  See also: Link Kat again
