    "The best there is!"

    August 25, 2012  |   By davepen

    Version: Avira Antivirus Pro 12.0.0.865

    Pros

    In the distant past I have trialled many anti virus programmes, some free some paid for, many just did not live up to their publishers claims and certainly not up to the standard I was looking for. several years ago I stumbled upon "AVIRA" and have was impressed with the quality and thoroughness of this programme so much so that I now have 3 paid subscriptions on 3 laptops and feel completely protected against any threat from any quarter! In a nutshell it is very easy to use, it's not a power hog does the job extremely well without any fuss, does not conflict with anything I am running. Best value on the market.

    Cons

    Might be a bit slow on scans but that's a small price to pay for overall high efficiency.

    Summary

    An excellent product for an excellent price.

    "An excellent product"

    January 20, 2012  |   By Vinny42

    Version: Avira Antivirus Pro 12.0.0.865

    Pros

    It does the job and is as good as AVG Pro which I used previously.

    Cons

    It can be a little slow even though 204 of 232 Gb are free.

    "Excellent antivirus"

    December 22, 2011  |   By steve.1020

    Version: Avira Antivirus Pro 12.0.0.865

    Pros

    -excellent detection one of the best if not the best.
    -light on ressource (if not just turn of advance process protection)that will fix the problem.
    -the price is very good just purchased avira antivirus premium for 3 years and it cost me 50$ this is awsome.
    -Avira is fully compatible with comodo firewall and defense + which is great thats what i use..
    im telling you this product is great.

    Cons

    none the only con i have is that cnet only give them a 4 star but i guess avira dont pay them (cnet) as much as norton,avg,kaspersky etc..

    Summary

    -I did a test 115 zero day malware samples with the following antivirus (ill put them in order best to last with scores)

    1-Avira antivirus 2012 Free-Paid 2012: 81% Detection
    2-Panda Cloud Antivirus Free-Paid: 70% Detection
    3-Comodo Internet Security 5.9: 67% Detection
    4-Avast Antivirus Free-Paid 6: 63% Detection
    4-Avg Antivirus Free-Paid 2012: 63% Detection
    5-Vipre Antivirus 2012: 62% Detection
    6-Microsoft Security Essentials 2.1: 51% Detection
    7-Norton Internet Security 2012: 46% Detection
    8-Eset Smart Security 5: 42% Detection

    So Avira came out on top im not a avira fan i just tell it like it is.

    -features are good too but could add a bit more but not too much because thats what bugs down computers when they have too much features it makes it heavy on system performance.

    Anyway Keep up the good work avira..

    "Very efficient program....works well."

    November 13, 2011  |   By fastsanke

    Version: Avira Antivirus Pro 12.0.0.865

    Pros

    Downloads easily. Has a simple but comprehensive interface. Offers a raft of choices as to what you want to scan. Moving up from the free version gives you some comforting protection from incoming mail and internet crusing.Downloads updates continuously.

    Cons

    Scans are SLOW. For instance, I chose the " quick scan " option. In this case, the scan looked like this:

    Scanned files......179,803
    Scanned directories....17,825
    Scanned archives....844

    Such a " quick scan " took 13 MINUTES.

    Summary

    It's a good, comprehensive package of protecting capabilities. It's not a power hog and has no appreciable effect on the operating speed of my computer. But the scans I've experienced so far have been SLOW. I have the fastest cable internet connection you can get. I run Widows 7 64 bit. I have 16 gigs of DDR3 RAM.
