    "What was once the best is now ruined"

    April 12, 2012  |   By lorie168

    Pros

    Everything about Avira *was* good. Easy to downlaod install update and was effective

    Cons

    I'm the type when I find something I like I stick with it and have used Avira for several years now. Understanding they have to advertise to exist getting a full blown pop-up advertisement several times a day has never been an issue for me.

    But now- every few minutes a nag screen comes up making it too annoying to tolerate.

    Sadly, I'm now looking for a different antivirus.
