“Crashed my Win 8 tablet, wont uninstal properly from...”

Written on: 21/10/2013 by dac099 (1 review written)

I had a 3 PC license for Avira, so I installed it on my Win 8 tablet - it completely crashed the tablet, forcing it to hard reset and losign all of my installed programs. I switched to another Anti virus, and uninstalled Avira from my other computer - which killed the wireless network. I ended up finding references to this problem online, so it's not uncommon with Avira. The fix required uninstalling the wireless network adapter and messing around at the command prompt. I would not recommend… Read Full Review

“This product is terrible!!!”

Written on: 02/05/2013 by PAN342 (1 review written)

First it was a struggle to install. I had to get technical support to assist because it kept on getting hung up. Then just a few short months later, the configuration changed and now I am helpless in changing anything because the path changed. I contact Avira and they tell me I will have to pay for them to fix this problem. This is ridiculous. When do you stop paying?… Read Full Review

“Works, but has too many bugs”

Written on: 07/07/2012 by Vascoa (1 review written)

I've used the free version of Avira for a couple of years until they gave me a KEY to upgrade to internet security which encompasses a Avira firewall. Their firewall can't be deactivated for good, it has to be deactivated every time you start the PC. If you don't deactivate it you will get a BLUESCREEN whenever you hibernate or even sometimes when suspending. Windows restarts from scratch and you loose all your work. After contacting Avira they seemed to reduce it but the problem is still… Read Full Review

actually is can be deactivated, go to add/remove items, or where ever you go to uninstall a program, and click avira, on the top instead of uninstall click change, go through the install steps as when you installed avira, but do the custom route, when you get to the components you want, de-select the firewall, continue as normal, and when its all done, the fire walls gone, then just turn on windows firewall.

Hi, my name is Stephany and I tell you I was sold thirty minutes after installing the trial Internet security. Aside from the original sound alerting to an intrusion attempt, it also warns me of third party attempts hiding under different names! My home screen starts up within seconds, something that took up to fhree minutes, if not more, prior to installing the trial. And when the trial is over, the $70 to recieve the paid version will be WELL WORTH IT; Because, quite honestly, in all the antivirus software I have dealt with, and there have been plenty, this one is a WINNER hands down. Im sold; WELL DONE, AVIRA!

I have been using free Avira antivirus software quite for a while and don't have anything bad to say about it. It was working alright. Just what I found strange was that sometimes from time to time when I did a system scan it sometimes find a little virus which I could easily could get rid of by using Avira. It made me wonder 'shouldn't antivirus prevent the viruses appearance in the system?'. Apart from that antivirus was satisfying considering that its a fee software.

What utter rubbish this person is saying about Avira Free Antivirus. I have been useing this software for a coupe of years now and I have welcomed it for its natural protection on my desktop computer. It has saved my O/S many times from viruses & malware, and I use it on my Laptop for the good of safety and peace of mind. Thank you Avira & all that work for you. I would recommend this software to anyone with praise P.Taylor

I believe you were duped into downloading a Trojan horse. I have been using Antivir for years now and recommend it to everyone. Aside from the once-a-day popup if you are a free user, it has performed very well. Much better than mcafee or norton.

The thing is that Avira lets you leave the virus or troyan as is on the drive. Virus stays undeleted, unblocked, fully operable, while the other programs remove it without even asking! This is a great option! Concerning some files it doesn't see... well, which one is ideal?! Avira is "silent" and much faster than any similar product!… Read Full Review

If you want the virus left in place, simply configure the 'other programs' to do so. Not sure why you would want to intentionally leave your computer infected though.
