C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\avscan.exe" /GUIMODE=2 /PATH="%DriveLetter%\"
is the preset --
but it runs my default scan - autoscans for rootkits on my C: drive, then scans my C: drive boot sector, C: master boot sector, then scans the flash drive, then returns to scan all of C, meanwhile not allowing the flash/CD to load.

Also: should it be scanning for rootkits on flash or cd drives or USB hard drives (when? after plugging?) or are rootkits only detected in real-time, meaning Avira guard will catch something -- if & when? do I want to scan my "whatever" drive boot sector, master boot sector as well? & how to do this?

My Online Armor auto-updated, & is now identifying this as a keylogger. Why would that be? Legitimate behavior for the program? or perhaps the bitsDuJour version I downloaded & purchased is infected??? Please advise.
