"The Best...except a few flaws"

March 18, 2009  |  By sjdfhadfdbabs

 |  Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 8.2.0.373

Pros

Detection rate, scan speed, reliability and low RAM usage. These all antivir's strong points.

Cons

Email guard could be better. And it reduces my download speed significantly when webguard is enable.

Summary

I like this product very much, but turning on and off the guard while downloading annoys me a little.

"Outstanding Value"

March 08, 2009  |  By abelink

 |  Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 8.2.0.373

Pros

I finally got tired of the annoying pops from McAfee and decided to try something else. After researching online, I decided to give Avira a try. After 3 months, I find that it's easy to use, effective and, not nearly as annoying as McAfee.

Cons

It takes a long time to update, but maybe that's just because it's thorough.

Summary

Better than McAfee, by a long shot.

"Outstanding"

March 06, 2009  |  By ynot343

 |  Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 8.2.0.373

Pros

In comparison to the best out there like Kaspersky and NOD, Avira offers (in order of importance)
Best protection (as proven in AV-Comparatives.org
Fastest Scans.
Minimal Resource consumption

Cons

Some people dislike the GUI and icon. I don't mind it, I prefer the cleaner, less cluttery look.

Summary

Best out there so far. Maybe something will surpass Avira later on just like it surpassed Kaspersky and NOD but currently its the best on all major criteria.

"Better the any other I tried."

January 14, 2009  |  By Leila_tx

 |  Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 8.2.0.373

Pros

I was having issues and tried 6 antivirus scanners with varying results. I tried this for a week and it solved a lot of problems. I decided to go premium. It has worked great so far.

Cons

I haven't as yet found a way to schedule scans, I have been needing to remember to start them. The company is in Europe, so my bank charged me a surcharge on my credit card (intl fee) when I placed an order for a 1 year subscription.

Summary

I have only had this program 2 1/2 weeks and except those few things in German it has done every thing I have asked it to do. The only complaint I have so far is that I like to schedule scans for every other day and I haven't figured a way to do that.

"Said to be the best, but if PC won't start properly..."

December 23, 2008  |  By MrVulcan

 |  Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 8.2.0.373

Pros

Reported to be the best there is.

Cons

It seems to keep Windows from starting properly.

Summary

Avira AntiVir may be the best there is, but that's no good if it keeps Windows from firing on all cylinders.
Translation: I kept missing icons in the system tray.
