superhacker, seems that there are a lot of "opinions" involved.
I don't think Avira is that bad... really.
if you talking about avira 9 yes but version is that bad even avira community members in avira forum say that

Why do people think MSE does a better cleaning job than avast?
Sensation of security (lack of configurability, etc.) is not the same as security itself.
infect your test pc and see how mse work on all layer of infection:
1.files
2.registry
3.repair bad configuration
or test a rootkit and you will be able to know

I won't do that deliberately ;D
But if it is true for some infections, it won't be for others.
MSE is not a panacea. Neither its detection rate is the panacea.

Here Ya go Murali my Friend. It says you can change it to 4,6, or 8 but 3 works as well. Remember to reset the permissions on the registry key when your done.
