When the word virus is mentioned many computer users freak out because they are very aware of the damages viruses could cause and thanks to Avira free antivirus every computer user can now relax and not freak out at the mention of the term virus. Unlike other antiviruses avira free is easy to use and it intergrates very well with other antiviruses. Avira free anti virus automatically updates its virus definations atleast once per day hence the user is assured that their PC is protected.

The annoying part of this virus is the pop- ups which alert the user on the upgrade, sometimes its very possible to find oneself canceling the same without the intentions and hence stopping the upgrade. I have also noticed since I started using this antivirus my machine perfomance has declined due to the antivirus. Avira free antivirus does not detect all antiviruses hence all users should have another antivirus to back it up.


  • it automatically updates on a daily basis
  • intergrates perfectly with other anti-viruses


  • Makes the machine perfomance slow
  • there are Many annoying pop-ups.

Avira Free Antivirus is a useful virus protection software, which will protect your computer from spyware, rootkits, worms, phishing, hoaxes, malware, general vulnerabilities, and will also detect malicious files. The features of this freeware have been focused on website verification, tracker blocking and coverage for social networks.

This software includes a toolbar to ensure daily safe browsing, eliminating annoying pop-up windows and adware. This tool now includes a website reputation advisor, social network protection and CallingID technology. Avira Free Antivirus simplifies your work by checking if everything is correct whilst you’re surfing the internet. The most recent feature of the toolbar is the ‘Expert Market’ feature, which is exclusively accessible to request tech support easily.

The file protection engine is constantly and automatically updating itself every 6 hours, making it a very current utility. Besides, this freeware can be combined with a smartphone app which provides anti-theft and device tracking options. However, we don’t recommend it because it doesn’t have a security engine, which means that it won’t protect you against malware. In conclusion, Avira Free Antivirus is a must-have security suite which offers a great range of options, more than other, similar antivirus software such as BitDefender, Antivir or Kaspersky.

Inside the ‘System Scanner’ option you will see several secondary possibilities such as scanning specific files or including additional settings. In that way you will know if your system has vulnerabilities, suspicious files, rootkits, worms, hoaxes, phishers, malware, spyware or any kind of virus. Avira Free Antivirus has an internet-updated, detailed virus database, to respond to the fact that hackers are constantly trying to improve and create new techniques to attack our computers. The right-hand column is specialized in Internet protection, so you will have options such as activating your firewall, web and mail protection, safe browsing or even game mode.
