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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

I signed up for a free copy of Avira which at the time I was happy with. All seemed to be working well until a virus hit and knocked out the functionality of Avira completely. I therefore had to download a different anti-virus package to clear the virus and never went back. From my experience of Avira the scans are thorough but it might not be able to deal with the virus once it finds it. (read more)

It's simply the best Antivirus with the best detections rate.
It has got some false positives but the program let you choose what to do.
Just adjust the settings to medium security level and the FP will be gone.
I never had promblems with FP, Avira is tested by you tube and detected much more virusses then Kaspersky and other AV programs.
Very light on resources as well, together with PC tools firewall plus, the ultimate combo....runs like a charm. (read more)

I have used this for a number of years on many platforms and on Windows 7 now. Works on Win 7 x64 and AMD.
It works first time every time out of the box.
It finds many threats the others miss!
Regular updates that work every time.
If you want worry free AV then go with this.
The free version is quite adequate in most cases.

ive used the free software for a long time, and it picks up everything. So i figured i might as well go for the full protection and purchased the premium security package. My advice dont bother.
I had a few problems with the inital installation, tried to contact Avira and they asked me to call their customer support helpline. These were all in Europe ie Germany. None in the UK. all were 090 numbers and they cost like £1.50 pm. No-way i was going to call that, so i sent them an email. All... (read more)

Funny isn't it, when you see many anti virus ratings Avira is never the top, would this be because there isn't any profit in selling it... I and many other people use it so why is it left out of the comparisons charts while many people swear by it.

I used the free version for a while, which I found to be very good. I like the plain, light-weight tree-based UI and the fact that it uses less RAM than other anti-virus programs, whilst still be fast and having excellent detection abilities.
I bought the premium version, which doesn't appear to be significantly different from the free version, because I wanted priority support and also to help support this excellent software, which gives about 40% of the cost of the premium software to... (read more)

I find that Avira AntiVirus have certainly outdone a lot of the AntiViruses already exisitng in the Market. Personally I use their completely free version but what I want to say is exactly what I like about Avira.
Firstly I like it because it is Free, then because it works like a dream and finally it's unobtrusive nor does it seem to cause a decrease in perfromance.
Using Avira in my opinion is a smart move. Compared with othter free anti-virus software there aren't many which can say they... (read more)

avira antivir antivirus catches more virus/trojans than other popular free AV progs.
Very easy to setup, does not require subsequent "tweeking".
Works straight out the box, updates itself.
Integrates with Windows Security.
Dont forget to switch Windows Firewall OFF once Avira is installed.
