    "It seems to work, but"

    October 29, 2010  |   By wsulek

    Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 10.0.0.603

    Pros

    It's there, updating, monitoring, runs a scan ...

    Cons

    This program spends a lot of time uploading something from my machine. One my PC boots up and stabilizes, my firewall indictaes that there are at least a dozen outgoing connections from Avira to whenever. It's suspicious & the CPU.

    Summary

    I've removed Avira from my PC and now it's quiet and fast.

    "Had it ten mins and already love it!"

    October 1, 2010  |   By cciarann

    Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 10.0.0.603

    Pros

    As soon as installed it scans your computer, found and got rid of virus' i had been trying to get rid of with ESET Nod32! I am ecstatic with this product and hope to use it for a long time in the near future!

    Cons

    The layout of the program isn't very attractive, but none the less a minor problem!

    Summary

    Not a resource hog, high detection rates (read reviews), removes and finds virus' ESET and many other competitors failed to find.

    This is an amazing product and have full confidence with Avira AntiVir Premium!

    "So far so good"

    September 24, 2010  |   By jaytee28

    Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 10.0.0.603

    Pros

    Finds problems, huge set of scanning options, multiple updates

    Cons

    Interface is old fashioned

    Summary

    As someone always ambivalent about the free AV options (AVG, Avast & Avira) as being OK but all having drawbacks, and having tried them all without total satisfaction, I decided to take a hike on purchasing a licence for Avira Premium two months ago. It was one of the best decisions I have made recently. It has been exceptionally efficient finding problems, both on scanning on demand, and on encountering dodgy websites while browsing. I have every confidence in it.

    On the downside, the interface is very old fashioned, although it does give you so many scanning/protection options, you may have to be an expert to customize it to your satisfaction!. Also, the annoyinig pop-up nag screens of the free version are replaced by unobtrusive pop-ups when updates take place (several times a day) which may not be to everyones liking.

    Overall though, after trying all free AV options I feel better protected with Avira Premium. Not perfect, and I would still run Malwarebytes and Spybot alongside it , but I feel safer with this product.

    "Worst Product & Bad Service ? Avira AntiVir Premium"

    August 22, 2010  |   By irisgba

    Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 10.0.0.603

    Pros

    Nothing ; I didn't like anything about this product or this company and the reason I?m writing this is because of the Error in this line: Please enter at least 10 characters

    Cons

    - Avira failed to protect my computer that ended up completely infected.
    - AntiVir Premium went ?out of date? ? without knowing when and why

    Summary

    Worst Product & Bad Service ? Avira Anti Virus
    My experience with AntiVir Premium holds for about 3 Months.
    - Avira failed to protect my computer that ended up completely infected.
    - AntiVir Premium went ?out of date? ? without knowing when and why
    - I was given false and wrong information by customer service for more than 2 weeks.
    - I was given promises that were never kept.
    - My business was damaged as a result of their inappropriate treatment
    - After making my point - over emails - with one of their Team Leader ? I received an offer to get one year free subscription - I refused immediately.
    - The cost of the computer technician who fixed our computer - was unexpected, high and
    Unnecessary expense, especially in this economic time.
    - My Livelihood injured - As a home business owner (Giving Office-services including
    Quick Book).
    - I will never recommend AVIRA company or its products !

    "Updates are buggy and will crash your system - BSOD"

    July 21, 2010  |   By texastreat

    Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 10.0.0.603

    Pros

    nothing; have uninstalled the paid product from all 3 of my machines.

    Cons

    They have poor response times for support. Their updates are buggy and have caused BSODs. Their response is to have you send in your logs and they will attempt to send you an individual fix.

    Summary

    After their last update their product started causing BSODs every 3 to 5 days. Took a bit of time to discover it was their program causing it. Their support forums show that this is happening to multiple people. Their support response is slow; instead of fixing their software, they request the user to capture logs (good luck for non IT experienced users), upload to any site you can find, and then they attempt to create an individual fix. Sounds very much like a Rinky Dinky sized company where a handful of people are trying to do everything. All they have managed to do is drive me and my money away.

    "Extremely high all around detection, lightning fast AV!"

    June 25, 2010  |   By Blade10X

    Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 10.0.0.603

    Pros

    First of all, Avira's detection, detection algorithm is very through , comparable with Kaspersky AV. Ultra fast reaction if any threat is found. Configuration is satisfying.

    Cons

    Not much caveats and alerts in my opinion. You get the feeling that your system isn't protected. Of course it is! Updates are weird. Interface could be a little more detailed. Classic protection without at least some new advanced features.

    Summary

    For those who don't know! Avira took a lot awards for being at the top of detection. There is always a fight between Avira, Kaspersky, G Data, and Norton (maybe). Avira is an old school, classic based Anti-Virus protection. Avira's detection is "raw-crude". Sometimes i think Avira is based on "police force" AV, LOL!!! The cheapest Anti-Virus protection i have ever seen, aggravated and weaker products are usually much expensive, too sad, but true. Some exemples are McAfee AntiVirus Plus, Panda Antivirus or let's say AVG Anti-Virus, cost way too much according what you get. That would be poor virus and spy detection and protection against them. It's normal thing for developers to say that his product is the best, ultimate etc... The worst thing is! They won't even listen populance and what they think about it. Developers say: "This product is tested", i say not it's not! Real test is exactly every single man who has it installed on his machine at home and he has seen how protected is he. My advice is not to pay for these 3 craps i mentioned. Install only good stuffs like Avira, Kaspersky, G Data, Norton and ESET. Heart of every Anti-Virus is detection and protection is brain. Heart or how much can he detect and cope with viruses, brain - how much protection is he capable to give, think where they are and how to block them. Makes sence? Right?

    Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 10.0.0.603

    Pros

    Holding the curser over the icon to see whats active is good!

    Cons

    The warning boxes that come up could be clearer for the ordinary bod computer user!

    Summary

    It's reasonably easy to upload and set up!

    "Absolutely Rock Solid Performance and Protection"

    May 11, 2010  |   By zron

    Version: Avira AntiVir Premium 10.0.0.603

    Pros

    Light on memory consumption...quick scanning...and superb configuration...and protection. New Pro-Activ behaviour scanner is an excellent detection device. Allows you to thoroughly set up scanning to pin point system areas .

    Cons

    Some users on various forums have complained about various bugs associated with Version 10...I realize that dependent on what any individual has on their system can cause problems with any app.

    Summary

    Avira has provided SECURITY..no Surprises...Updates itself as promised...and is light and unobtrusive. It's an intelligent...superb...anti-virus...anti-malware solution. Purchase it...you will be convinced ! Version 10...10 out of 10.
