Avira Scheduler and Avira Realtime Protection is in System Configuration Services and those are not allowed to be deleted. Avira Scheduler and Avira Realtime Protection is in Services and those are not to be allowed to be deleted. I do not think that each of these are needed. It seems that 2 Aviras should only be in System Configuration Services or Services.

The scheduler and real-time protection do two different things.

Real-Time protection means that the program scans files as they open etc.

The scheduler is the part of the program that allows you to schedule full system scans, schedule the updates etc.

Both these are integral and important aspects of the antivirus program.

System Configuration Services in Windows 7 is similar to msconfig in earlier Windows versions. It is used primarily to help a computer user figure out what might be wrong with the computer.

The Services section shows what services are installed on the computer, if they are running or not, and if they are set to run manually, automatically, or if they are disabled. You can also find out basic information about what the service does and what services it depends on.

These two sections have different purposes and will show some of the same information.

Edited to add: The list you see in System Configuration Services is generated from the Services section. The difference is that System Configuration Services will show you only what services are enabled at bootup; whereas, the Services section shows all the services installed. (Thank you havredave).

If I change Avira in Services to Manual or Disabled or go back to Automatic I get access is Denied. If I try to get rid of Avira in SystemConfiguration Services it refuses to allow it. I guess I must stick with it.
