Written on: 07/12/2008 by Joecasss (1 review written)

It's amazing value, I'm only on a free trial and I'm overwelmed. I'm thinking of buying it to show support and it's great that it warns you as soon as it can, it constantly updates, protecting my computer, and it tells me everything that could be dangerous or is suspicious on my computer! Love it!
Overall I'm very very pleased with this product. Because when my trial had expired with my previous antivirus my friend told me about it and immediately did a scan and I was safe… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/10/2008 by bubsywub (1 review written)

Over the years, I've used several antivirus programs starting with McAfee in the early years, followed by Norton, then Bitdefender. I liked Bitdefender V10, but recent updates have resulted in some issues on my computer so I was searching for a new program to try. I tried Avira and I'm EXTREMELY pleased. Setup was easy, and the program is very easy to use and most importantly, doesn't use a great deal of system resources. In other words, it doesn't slow the computer down, and for me and other's… Read Full Review

Good detection rate! This antivirus is the best I've ever use so far.
Good news! Avira Antivirus won the first place in the 2008 antivirus competition!
Also, if you're using the free version, you can add comodo firwall 3 pro (free)... this firewall got 100% on the firewall test this year also!
This firewall doesn't even use a lot of memory, average memory use is around 128kb~300kb!… Read Full Review

Fantastic antivirus, have been using since it was a 4mb free download back in 2004 and it's just been getting better everytime, I'm a computer tech and use avira on all the machines that come in and are running other antivirus software - Avira always picks up stuff that they miss - we're even a reseller of the premium version... it's that great. Uses very little resources and is very stable… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/09/2008

I downloaded the free version of avira, and it seems to work well. But there are daily pop ups urging the purchase of the premium version; these can't be turned off, they pop up daily, and are very annoying. Would advise against downloading the free version unless you plan on getting the premium… Read Full Review

Hi,
You can prevent the banners\popups be creating a rule in gpedit.msc to prevent avnotify.exe from running. This resolves the banners..

If someone ask me to recommend an free antivirus product, the first on my list would be Avira AntiVir. Excellent antivirus for a beginer user or even a more experienced one.
