"Unattended updates protect despite haphazard operator"
Nags are well timed, not a mid-project distraction, and generally informative while doing their job of trying to be a profitable operation. Free is relative. No cost to me, but very good protection from hazards I can not even define well.
Update process doesn't notify the windows security watchdog that update is in progress, so I get a Windows nag screen telling me I may not have anti-virus protection enabled. I avoid clicking any links while update is completed.
After some experience with a number of anti-virus programs, Avira is my choice for new computer/internet users. Simple to use, with most of the serious business taken care of without user attention. Choosing what to do with a threat can be intimidating for a computer newbie. Forum-support is available for more advanced users. Of the many anti-virus products with free versions and paid versions, Avira is in my Consider the Paid Version catagory.
