It seems that there are plenty of complaints regarding very slow startup of Avira antivirus, and I myself am experiencing the same.
I have a VMware virtual machine (Windows 8.1) for testing purpose, which the disk is stored in a HDD drive.
When I boot the VM, antivirus freezes at startup and I have to wait for a couple minutes to have access.
After everything are settled, and I reboot the VM, it starts fine.
I suspect that the reboot is fine since the files in HDD are cached.
My machine boots from a SSD and antivirus starts up with no waiting time.
So I think that there are some problem in startup if the boot drive is a HDD.
