Avira Antivirus has the quality of being multiplatform. It is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac, and in addition to its paid version, there is also a free version. As with most antivirus software, it is able to scan hard and removable drives for viruses, and it also runs as a background process, testing each file (both open and closed).

I starting using Avira Antivirus two years ago or maybe a little more, and for almost a year, I recommend it to my colleagues and even my relatives. I came across Avira almost by chance, after having a virus problem in an old computer, in which I used another well-known antivirus.

Avira is in general an antivirus that fulfills its basic functions in a good way, but without reaching an impenetrable strength. However, if you are a common and responsible user--who knows where you browse, does not download files from any side, scans a pendrive before opening it, does not open files of dubious origin--then without a doubt this a good antivirus for you, since it has a level of detection that's more than acceptable and a low impact on the use of resources of your PC. Now, if you like to download patches for your programs, download files from who knows where, and navigate more carelessly, I think you should look for another antivirus, something more powerful, with less margin for error.

  • Detects the vast majority of malicious files that you can download from the web
  • The in-depth analysis system is very thorough
  • Starts quickly in the system
  • Its "system speedup" does not produce as much improvement or changes as other programs that perform similar functions.
  • I think I should have some system to erase invalid keys and records that are easy to use as a CCleaner
It is very useful and good if you browse the web a lot or if you download many files from various sites, as it has a pretty good protection system that blocks pages and files. It also allows you to use your own VPN in case you want to hide your IP. Unfortunately, I have noticed that it is not very good to use in computers with a low power since they freeze or slow down too much.
