Avira Free Antivirus Review

Sven Sorensen
An effective and fast antivirus program that provides protection against known web threats, different types of malware, viruses and trojans and a built-in firewall
A review of Avira Free Antivirus by Sven Sørensen

Avira Free Antivirus is Avira's entry into the freeware antivirus market. It protects your personal computer against known malware such as viruses, spyware and certain types of rootkits.

With the release of their newer versions, the Avira Free Antivirus product has become well known for its high speed and efficiency. The resource consumption and footprint of Avira Free Antivirus seems pretty low compared to former versions and there are no noticeable slowdowns.

This antivirus product comes with two different modes: Beginner and Expert. The Expert mode shows extra configuration options but like most other freeware antivirus products, it does lack when compared to the paid solutions.

One of the things that Avira Free Antivirus lacks is the inclusion of an email scanner, a firewall or a game mode; it also lacks web-based protection though in our opinion, Adblocker is great when combined with Avira.

Overall, Avira Free Antivirus is effective at protecting users against viruses and completely free for home users.
