About Avira Free Antivirus

Editors Review
Avira's very good detection rate, quality real-time protection, and great performance certainly don't match up its very low cost of absolutely nothing. Its excellent cloud scanning feature also adds to the value, often making us question why we'd pay for other software if all we really needed was something to scan our computers. Few other AVs offer similar value for no money exchanged.
Avira Free Antivirus is a free antivirus solution for computers running Windows.

Avira Free Antivirus allows you to scan for and removes viruses, trojans, backdoor programs, and other malware. It has a scheduler which regularly updates its virus definitions database, program stability, and program features as soon as they are available.

Avira Free Antivirus comes with a wide array of features that enhance security besides its scanning component, including a real-time detection system, privacy tools, and anti-adware. It can also scan removable drives and media that are inserted into your computer, to prevent any malicious autorun software or files from making it into your system.

Avira sets itself apart from the rest with Avira Protection Cloud, which provides an early-warning system for users by sending unknown files into a scanning network in the cloud, and getting feedback on the safety status of these files.

Avira Free Antivirus doesn't cost anything to download, and is ad-supported to keep it free. For $31.99, you can purchase Avira Antivirus Pro from the Avira website to get unlimited tech support, a website blocker, security while banking and shopping online, and more.
