Avira Free Antivirus Review

Sven Sorensen
Basic virus protection which is offered free-of-charge for home users
A review of Avira Free Antivirus by Sven Sørensen

Formerly know as AntiVir Personal, 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 2012 version, Avira's free antivirus product has become well known for its high speed and efficiency. The resource consumption of Avira's program is low even while scans are taking place.

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 is effective at protecting users against viruses and completely free for home users.

Avira is licensed as freeware for the Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from antivirus without restrictions. Avira is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
