    "One of the best recommended."

    January 17, 2013  |   By shayne255


    Has great protection and does not bog down my computer resources. It is able to update automatically when it needs to and protects me from all the malware spyware and trojans. I would recommend this to anyone who is starting out with a windows computer and needs good protection. I also think this is a good choice because I had this on my old 12 year old computer and was pretty speedy no problems at all.


    No cons coming from me =).


    I personally love this antivirus it keeps me updated without anything bad coming into my computer and is not a resource hog on my computer. I will keep recommending this to everyone who has a new computer or reformatted their desktop so they can be secure like me.

    @ shayne255 Great Review and I agree with everything you said.Avira has great protection and detection rates.It is the lightest on my computer than any of the others.This is what I recommend to friends also for older computers because it doesn't slow them down as bad and they have awesome protection.
