I use the free version of Avira and I have gotten this exact pop-up many times. The same 2,615,151 infections and the same 15 days. Don't get me wrong, I like Avira, but they should not be doing this.

It's how some AV get cash. It's kind of how the world works.

I did not get 2 million viruses.... it was from other "people" (as falsely advertised).

I imagine it's not really falsely advertised. I would presume that there really were that many infected computers in some segment of time. But, that time period could be between a certain period in the past and only updated so often. So, until the next update, it will continue to show the same number of infected computers.
