Over the years I have tested and used about every anti virus program available. I now only use Avira AntiVir Premium which reliably protects your computer against all viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, phishings, adware, spyware, bots, and dangerous “drive-by” downloads. Additionally Avira’s AHeADTechnology detects against unknown viruses by their profiles.
Avira AntiVir Premium 2013 has remarkably strong computer virus detection capabilitiy. The software offers a wide selection of scan customization, letting users scan both internal and external hard drives, run a preloaded scan for rootkits, or customize a scan. On a my computer, the full scan took about 1 hour and 10 minutes, which I understand is an average scan time. Avira has a scanning technology that can crack open “locked” files. Avira has internal security to prevent AntiVir’s files from being maliciously altered, and one-click threat removal. The quick removal feature removes viruses at the push of a button.
When Avira quarantines a file, its information is on display along with options to scan it again, restore, delete, and e-mail the file to Avira. Avira can be turned on or off in part or in full and offers three intensity levels. AntiVir does not require a special uninstallation tool, unlike many other anti virus programs.
