Recent Avira update brought a new interface with minimal possibility of interaction on what modules you can install or you can uninstall, and I think it's really bad.
I always choose Avira for it's "lightness" and the possibility to install only the Antivirus module because I only needed this, and I usually don't like bloatware installed without my permission and that I don't need.
Yesterday all of a sudden Phantom VPN icon appeared on my taskbar, and I succeeded removing that by disabling the service manually, but the main problem I have now is with the Firewall module.
I DON'T WANT windows defender firewall enabled for my private lan connection, for an amount of good reasons, but with the latest version I can't disable Windows Firewall without Avira going into "Warning mode" telling me that it's disabled and keeping the Avira Umbrella Icon closed like there's a problem with protection.
More disturbing is that when I reboot my PC the Windows Defender Firewall is reactivated again by Avira. Why ???
Is there a way to get rid of Firewall module from Avira ? Let me control the firewall when I want and how I want.
