Good virus detection. Avira was able to detect viruses infecting my computer that AVG and PC Tools Anti-Virus did not detect. Now my computer is virus free.
In general, this is a good AV software, given that this is free… Read Full Review

Avira AntiVir Antivirus is easy to use, heavy with CPU. It has on time updates and catches viruses quickly. The only bad point I can find with this is the splash screen in start-up… Read Full Review

I have used most AV's over the years most recently a paid version of Norton Anti Virus but that was so resources hungry and obtrusive it slowed things down quite noticeably even on my very modern and RAM rich computer.

Avira AntiVir Antivirus protects your computer from the virus and it is to my knowledge the best Antivirus, even though it is free. I have used AVAST, AVG, COMMANDOS,etc. I thank AVIRA for this gesture.
The speed could be increased while scanning. I think that there should be some 'healing the file' option… Read Full Review

I have used many different anti virus products over the years, including AVG, Avast, Anti Vir, NOD32, Norton, Kaspersky and McAfee.I can safely say AntiVir classic is by far the best free antivirus available. It's detection rates are better than some paid antivirus' like Norton and it completely thrashes both Avast and AVG as far as detection rates go. It is EXTREMELY light on system resources, by far the lightest AV I have ever used. It is silent and doesn't keep pestering. It is also very… Read Full Review
