Malware avira.swu.srv

Hello, I have removed the previous antivirus avira, but a program called avira.swu.srv, which detects obsolete programs, is still running on my computer. I think it is malware and there is no way to remove it. Kaspery asks for permission to remove it, accepts but fails to remove it. Thanks

Hello Berny, I have taken a screenshot of the notification of the avira program that is running (although I don't have it installed). I am also sending you the screenshot of the report.
 

Karspersky has not indicated any problem, but that extension is working every day, and Karspersky detects it and asks me to remove it, I say yes, restart the computer, and it is still there without being removed.

I’m encountering this issue too, I’ve uninstalled Avira completely on 2 seperate systems and every time I try to install Kaspersky, it claims Avira is still installed.

I just ignore the message, I’m pretty sure its a bug on Kaspersky’s side. Falsely detecting the presence of Avira where there is none.

Hi @Berny 

I did what you asked and ran the Avira Registry Cleaner, after it completed I restarted my computer and Kaspersky didn’t complain about Avira anymore.

I’ve attached a log of the registry keys it cleaned. It appears the registry key causing the issue was “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Avira\SoftwareUpdater” → [deleted]

 

Thanks.
