Avira Antivirus The problem with this software is you can not have full control of it. It is going to do updates whether you want them or not. I like to do my updates manually after I connect to the internet and start up my VPN service and depending on what I am doing. But I can not, it connects immediately without my permission before my VPN can load! It is going to update itself no matter how you change the settings when it wants to! Nothing pisses me off more than going after a cup of… Read Full Review

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

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

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

I am talking about Avira 10 this is a buggy product, don't take my word visit their forum. A pro-active module is added to version 10 this itself has caused countless problems being buggy and their advisers tells you to dis-able it!!!!

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
