    "The "slowest on demand scanner" on the market"

    September 18, 2014   |   By Bambino Pucko

    Version: Avira Antivirus Suite 14.0.4.672

    Pros

    Avira scores well in "AV-comparatives independent test" because they are both German companies. It's suspect.

    Cons

    the slowest on demand scanner with the fanzy name Luke Filewalker. Trojans are undetected and privacy is not secured, thats a risk.

    Summary

    I can say this software is not worth the money. Expensive beacuse no full protection at all. russian trojans can stay undetected hidden in the file system and Aviras slow on demand scanner dont find them. the Avira customer support is invalid.

    "I have used Avira on all my computers. Quite effective"

    January 12, 2014   |   By leighsydneychina

    Version: Avira Antivirus Suite 14.0.0.411

    Pros

    It's free... but also has good upgrades and has protected my computers for the past 4 years

    Cons

    The upgrades and the anti-virus capabilites are a bit of an unknown. I don't really know if Avira has the ability to dig out all viruses and bugs.

    Summary

    An excellent option, as long as you use basic common sense in using the internet and handling unknown source messages et al. Highly recommended.

    "Very good, light AV and solid protection"

    January 02, 2014   |   By CupcakesWillRule

    Version: Avira Antivirus Suite 14.0.0.411

    Pros

    -Solid protection (proof here: ******/1g3E7GP)
    -Great customer service
    -FREE
    -Great anti theft and blacklisting
    -Attractive UI

    Cons

    -Anti theft could just use these features:
    Detect SIM card change

    Unwipable through recovery

    Take a picture through front camera when passcode entered wrong 3 times

    Force GPS on when location is requested though myavira

    Summary

    Great program overall, anti theft is just slightly lacking ADVANCED features.

    "Good detection but confusing interface"

    December 21, 2013   |   By FrankPizza

    Version: Avira Antivirus Suite 14.0.0.411

    Pros

    Very good detection rates. Can "set and forget". Very low impact on resources, does not impact on browsing speed.

    Cons

    The GUI / interface is half-finished, it is a mixture of old style and new style, it needs more work. I hope they do not make it as dumb as Avast or Bitdefender, it looks potentially a good interface, hope they do not screw it up and make it Windows 8 style for Windows 7 users.

    Summary

    Very good but confusing.

    November 08, 2013   |   By pleinlecasque

    Version: Avira Antivirus Suite 14.0.0.411

    Pros

    none

    HOPING TO GET ANSWERS

    Cons

    On the box bought at montreal retailer very confusing advertisement
    I read under internet protection..QUOTE .Firewall an extra layer of protection against network intrusions -CRUCIAL FOR WI-FI -
    WHICH IS THE MAIN REASON I BOUGHT IT FOR after removing the security suite AND installing and registering Antivirus PREMIUM then and only then do you find out it has NO FIREWALL probably does not have noone of the EXTRAS stated on box reverse side neither.big disapointement

    Summary

    Wrote the EXPERTS a note waiting for an answer hope I get satisfaction from AVIRA --was satisfied for two years with security suite ---
    I CONSIDER THE BOX WORDING of Antivirus Premium both .
    FRONT and BACK to be MISLEADING .....as to what the contents of the program on the enclosed disc are does the program get changed on the first UPDATE any one having similar problems .....
    Hoping to get an answer from avira soon

    "Which is worse - the Antivirus or the Customer Service?"

    October 23, 2013   |   By tcar2013

    Version: Avira Antivirus Premium 2013 13.0.0.3885

    Pros

    As far as I know, they have not physically assaulted any of their customers.

    Cons

    Avira Antivirus Premium 2013 continuously fails to complete scans. Four months of emails to Avira customer service, along with following all of their instructions, have failed to remedy the problem. In addition to failing to solve the problem, for some reason they randomly respond to me with emails in French, a language I do not speak, and suggest that I should call them in France to resolve the problem. Needless to say, I'm not going to make an international phone call (from the USA) to speak to someone in a language I do not understand.

    They have also suggested (not once, but twice) that I set up a remote session for them to analyze my computer. When I followed through with their directions, they declined to participate in the sessions that they suggested. They have no idea what they are doing!

    Summary

    Four months of trying to resolve the problem of Avira Antivirus failing to complete scans has resulted in absolutely no progress. The problem is still unresolved, in spite of my uninstalling Avira, reinstalling Avira, performing a Winsockreset, repairing Avira, downloading and sending them information via their Support Collector tool, and finally downloading their Customer Support Module and preparing for remote sessions that they suggest but never follow through on. Four months of wasted energy spent on a useless program. Avira Antivirus? I do not recommend it, to put it mildly.

    "Fantastic Program .....BUT"

    July 19, 2013   |   By wickeddevil

    Version: Avira Antivirus Premium 2013 13.0.0.284

    Pros

    Does what it is mean to do. Detection rate is fantastic and the program itself is light weight and easy to use. Rated under the top 5 with avtest and several other independent companies.

    Cons

    Well... anti Phishing is not so good. Tested it and failed miserably straight of the mark. Not a good indication at all. Virus detections was a pass on all ends however anti Phishing to me is as much of a big deal as a virus.

    Summary

    Apart from the anti Phishing fail this program is top notch fro a free antivirus. Fix the anti Phishing fail and its 5 starts from me.

    "Avira works for me"

    September 08, 2012   |   By bluhrig

    Version: Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 12.0.0.865

    Pros

    I started using Avira at the recommendation of my computer guy and have not had any problems. Of course, I'm careful but still have clicked on that link I shouldn't have clicked a couple of times. It saved me. Am using Avira on 2 computers. You can even let it keep reminding you that it just updated or stop that. I like the notification because it reminds me to stay vigilant.

    Cons

    None for me

    Summary

    Avira is an excellent purchase and right now has a price drop.

    "Avira has become ADWARE"

    August 25, 2012   |   By MikeyPrince

    Version: Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 12.0.0.865

    Pros

    It's free, sort of...

    Cons

    During the last several months, Avira has morphed into industrial-strength ADWARE. Its latest updates interrupt your work several times PER HOUR to solicit subscriptions, payments, upgrades, etc. There is NO way to turn these popups and slideups off--the instructions on the Avira site about how to turn these incessant ads off work--if at all--for only a few minutes, then Avira turns them all back on. You can't even delete the relevant executables with any effect--Avira reinstalls them.

    Summary

    Avira has become exactly what we hired them to protect us against.
