    Avira Free Anti virus


    A friend at work asked me have I ever used Avire Free Anti virus (he husband put it on her laptop) I said no but I can look at it, so installed and up to now I quite like it. I do know some Iffy sites so a little test and I will see how Avire handles it :)

    I've used it and I have to say it's really good.

    I need to try it out again.

    Full system scan inc 2x 1 TB EXT HDDs took 1 hour and 7 mins, that's about 3.1/2 TB scanned :)

    Avira signatures is superior than Windows Defender, but this antivirus lacks of zero day protection and need to redesign UI.

    Thank you RubberDucky :)

    I did go to (lets say known sites) and Avira did react and notified me >

    I did a full scan with Malwarebytes after and found nothing, still testing :)

    Hi Steph.
    Have used Avira for some time, if set right uses little resources.
    First time do a full scan, then set up as shown below, note:- time required on quick scan.
    This on an MSI gaming laptop set up with two SSD, plus a 750gb HDD in Raid 0.

    The Avira UI to me is a bit plain, its easy to use and does not take long to get used to >
