Avira Antivir

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009 by | Filed Under: Free Downloads

I’ve always been a big fan of knowing what is the best. As a matter of fact, I look forward to the monthly arrival of my Consumer Reports magazine so I can read all of the comparisons and ratings, just to keep my edge.

Well, this month’s issue arrived just a couple days ago and the headline title was about computers. You can only imagine my excitement! I raced to my recliner and settled in for some enlightened reading time. I was about half way through an article when I came across ratings for Anti-Virus software. The most interesting part was that they rated free programs as well as paid programs. Since I am always looking for great free programs, this little section was right up my alley.

Now that I’m done telling you about my Saturday, I’ll get to the point. Last year consumer reports rated AVG the number one free anti-virus software on the web. Since then, I have recommended it highly. Now, it seems that a new king has been crowned. This year, the magazine rated Avira Antivir Personal Edition the number one free antivirus on the web.

Since it got such a good rating, I decided to check it out. It is a very nice program for the money (or lack of money in this case). So, if you are looking for free, basic protection you should check out Avira. It’s simple to install and easy to use. It also provides some pretty good protection for a free product. You can download it here:



Special Note: Although Avira is a very good program, it is not as full featured as the many paid AV suites out there. If you are looking for basic, free protection, Avira is the place to go and it is definitely better than nothing. If you are looking for a full suite, you might want to look into a paid product.
