Conditionally very good 4 stars by drfung Dec 04, 2013 (Read all my 17 reviews)
I say conditionally because there is some concern regarding Avira's collaboration with UniBlue and Ask. A web search will yield the concerns. However, if you do not install the Ask Toolbar feature, the product works well for a freebie. It's EULA is nowhere near as intrusive as some of the other free av out there, assuming of course, that you do not install the Ask feature. A nag screen reminder will state that you do not have full web protection, but realtime protection will be there. show Review details
Good free antivirus 4 stars by ianmacm Apr 18, 2013 (Read all my 173 reviews)
This is my first review of Avira AntiVir Personal since 2010, and it has changed considerably since then. The main strength of Avira AntiVir Personal is that it is light on system resources and unlikely to slow down the computer. It has some nag screens for the paid version, but the interface has improved since 2010. The program is still somewhat prone to producing false positives, flagging innocent processes as a threat. Avira has never become as well known as some of its rivals, but it is worth considering when a simple and lightweight antivirus program is required. show Review details
Too many ads? 1 stars by rjsl55362 Sep 30, 2012 (Read all my 6 reviews)
It's a good anti virus but too many ads and big one's too (that slow your system while loading). Also, I tried to use the manual updates but it didn't work, it kept it on auto. That was the last straw for me, hopefully they'll go back to light small ads and have a manual update that works. show Review details
