Years ago, a free antivirus was often a synonym of poor protection. Nowadays, thanks to programs like Avira AntiVir Personal, this perception of free antivirus has improved a lot.
Avira AntiVir Personal is the free – for personal use – version of Avira Antivir Premium; this means there are a few advanced features unavailable, like the virus filter for email or for web browsing, but the program is as powerful and efficient as its big brother.
Avira AntiVir Personal installs in a few seconds and starts protecting your system in real time right away. It includes all the tools and options you would expect from an antivirus these days, such as different types of scan, support for scheduling, automatic updates, and a quarantine area for suspicious files.
On the downside, Avira AntiVir Personal is let down by a somewhat rough interface that feels like it was designed ten years ago and never restyled: simple to use, but too plain.
Looking for an efficient, uncomplicated antivirus tool? Avira AntiVir Personal may be a good choice. Download
