"No longer recommendable (toolbar polluted)"
- Detection rate is somewhat good
- Flexible usage (good options)
- Fast installation
- Toolbar and ad polluted
- Old school and unclear user interface
- Lot of false positives
- Quite high resource consumption when scanning (> 250 MB)
- Web protection only when accepting ASK.COM toolbar
- No 64 bit support for ProActiv
- No email protection
- Lots of useless "features"
Imho Avira managed to lose it's reputation and technological skills in the past 2 years. The product's (in former days good!) technology seems now to be far behind industry standards. Many features - including the user interface - are outdated and hard to use in newer OS. With all this advertising and toolbar crap it seems that they moved to the "dark side".
