Where to download AntiVir Personal for UNIX

Why is it so impossible to find a page on Avira.com or Free-AV.com to download the AntiVir Personal for UNIX from. I've been searching across the site for ages, using your site search engine and even using Google on site:avira.com. I can find documentation and some knowledge base articles but nowhere to actually download the software from, what gives?

Found it!

I spoke to soon, I found the download page eventually, I still think it's way to hard to find.

DaZuKo is included in the installation archive of AVir Free for Linux. But this project is cancelled because fanotify is now included in the newer Linux Kernels.
The Licence key, the manual and more ar ealso included in the installaiton archive of aVir for Linux 3. Unpack this archive and search in the folders for these files.

I just checked to see if there was a newer Avira for Linux than what I have (3.1.3.5-0), and much to my surprise the version provided (dated on your first link page as Feb 13, 2012 (as if there were a new version then)) is Version: 3.0.2-5, which my archive manager says is from 03 April 2009.

Why would they stick an old version in Downloads...?!?

I have asked internal about this issue.
Meanwhile please start an update after the installation of aVir. This should solve this issue.

Don't try the older version, as the update doesn't work right, unless you update the components in a certain order, plus you get left with two copies of the program files (folder within folder).

I just use the pro version and give it the free key, which works, plus it's the newer version that got replaced with the older one. Did post about this, but got no reply as can be seen in the Unix forum.

Anyway, here is the direct link:

I tried the download at
http://www.avira.com/en/download/product/avira-free-antivirus
and there it is:
Avira Free Unix/Linux Unix Feb 13, 2012 ZIP 42 MB
but it says something like "the platform is not correct".
It is a 64Bit machine.

Is there any recent version of Avira for Linux 64Bit for private/home usage?
