    "Not so happy with avira anti virus"

    November 22, 2012  |   By MisterCosco


    Yes it is fast and found some vagrantes that MSE did not find. Very good in that area,


    I installed this antivirus,scaned my PC everything was fine. After a couple of days I could not open my computer to any of the icons on my desktop,ie,google,clicked on google icon,would not open,rebooted computer,clicked agian,would not open. The same with other icons would not open. I deleted Avira Antivirus and reinstalled MSE and and everything is OK. I had trouble with other applications from Avira in the past. It claims to be the best but there are issues. Will not use it again. To bad,it comes highly recommed but I don't know why I have trouble with it.


    Make up your own mind,if you want to download it. I would like to know if anybody else had this problem
