Avira and VirtualBox Broken

tldr: Avira face punches VirtualBox. Need other virus scanner.

I was using Avira, because it is the best free virus scanner. And I am using VirtualBox for sandboxed Windows, local Linuxes, as docker container host, etc...

...but recently they stopped working together.

Over 2 weeks VirtualBox VMs were increasingly less likely to start. I needed some time and googling to find out that Avira prevents the VM from starting. Disable Avira: still nogo. Uninstall Avira: VirtualBox works. Reinstall Avira: VirtualBox broken again.

Time to move on to a different virus scanner.
