"Should NOT be rated #2 in CNET downloads"
Avast is so much better than AVG who tries to imitate Avast but is a failure. When Avast compres to Avira, it crushes it since Avira free only offers system protection and not web protection unlike Avast.
Avast is the best free roubust protector for your system!!!!!!
Not a darn thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Updated on Feb 25, 2012So here's what misicman4you. I like to see that youre interested and have strong views about your AVIRA.But here's what you are misguided. No offense. Avast detection rate on malware in the system is not as high as Avira (by about 10%)but Avast auto sandbox isolates the suspicious item automatically so no harm is done to the system. Also Avast new cloud feature automatically submits the suspicious item to their labs while keeping the file in the sandbox.This is done in the background so the user is not aware until the result has been made. Finally Avast web protection blocks 95% plus based on AV- COMPARATIVES. WEST COAST LABS and AV-TEST. So if Avast has block the threat on the internet do you expect the system to have any threats? Clearly not. So Avast will not be showing any pop-ups since there is no threat on the system.
Updated on Feb 25, 2012However, Avira free does not has the web guard so th threat is "allowed" to enter the system.Then you will threat detections from Avira. Also Avira detects the temp files left by the virus (not harmful)separately so you would see various pop-ups.
I can't make it any clearer to you. I hope you understand and remember no offense meant.
Oh and if I had to buy a suite I would go with F - SECURE or KASPERSKY because of the excellent detection rates.
