Avira 10 treads water
The popular antivirus suite Avira AntiVir Free updated to version 10, but there's surprisingly little new here. Users will get a faster, simpler installation and a refreshed skin, but feature-wise the latest from Avira merely holds its own rather than pushing ahead.
That's not to say that Avira isn't one of the best free antivirus apps out there, because it is. It remains easy to use, with a robust selection of preset scans, and it continues to fare well in efficacy tests. Don't take our word for it, though: watch this First Look video and tell us what you think in the comments below.
