There has been a recent issue with SpywareBlaster and AVG 8 - I am not sure weather this issue has effected Avira though.
What exactly is the issue? Is Avira detecting SpywareBlaster as a rogue suspect/infection or is it picking up hazardous ActiveX controls?
Either way it's a false positive on Avira's end.

I want you to try this:
1. Uninstall SpywareBlaster.
2. Once SpywareBlaster has been uninstalled, scan with Avira again - post your results.
You may have downloaded a SpywareBlaster installation that had been injected with malicious code and Avira is picking this up. Could you tell me exactly where you got the installation file? Also, I recommend you submit this file to VirusTotal and see if any other scanners detect malicious code - post these results aswell.
