A:BitDefender Antivirus Free vs Avast Antivirus Free vs Avira Antivirus Free

Resource Usage (eg: CPU, RAM): draw, with the indication of Avira, since BitDefender takes overall a little bit less of CPU time, but consumes much more RAM.
Level of Protection and Features (eg: Antivirus , Firewall, Behavior Blocker): Avira has more features, configuration options and is generally more effective when it comes to the malware detection (Proactive and Reactive).
Overall Winner: Avira.
Edit: I've just noticed, that you've added Avast - as the third contestant - to BitDefender and Avira. Still Avira is the winner here. Avast is not too hungry for PC resources and perhaps has more features, but its engine is not so good, and its detection ratio usually lags behind both: BitDefender and Avira.

I did not finish the whole installation process, however I clicked through a few stages of "no's", asking to install toolbars, and such.

Currently I have free versions of Avast & Avira installed. I suspect Avira is not working properly though it resists all my attempts to completely uninstall it. I've used Revo's uninstaller. Revo shows two icons; one for Avira & one for Avira Free Antivirus. In Vista's control panel Programs & Features it has the same two icons. The Control Panel page shows an icon for Avira Free Antivirus. In Program Files there is an Avira folder w/two folders; AntiVirDesktop & My Avira.

A:Trying to uninstall Avira free antivirus on Vista

How do I uninstall my Avira product?Instructions for manual uninstallation of AviraIt is not uncommon for some anti-virus programs to not completely uninstall itself using the usual method of Programs and Features or Add/Remove Programs due to the presence of related services and processes running in the background. Sometimes the uninstall works more effectively if you first stop and disable the program's service (and associated processes) or perform the removal in safe mode so there are less processes which can interfere with the uninstallation.In many cases anti-virus vendors also provide clean-up utilities on their web sites to remove remnants left behind after unintalling or for a failed uninstall so always check there first.Avira Download Center: Avira RegistryCleaner <- removes all registry entries (leftovers) created by Avira productsAvira RegistryCleaner DownloadAlso see the IMPORTANT NOTE about not using more than one anti-virus program in this topic: Choosing an Anti-Virus Program

Since I encountered a problem with updating Comodo AV signatures database, (same as described here), I have changed my AV to Avira Free. After installation, I've uninstalled Avira online essentials (additional tool that I don't need, and installs together with AV, for the ones that don't know) Unfortunately, the company wants to persuade me to reinstall AOL by popping up "update" information every few reboots, and they try to make me upgrade to premium using the same method. I am not to do neither of it, so here's my question:
 
Any way to disable this iritating pop up windows by a small change in the program's files or a small registry modofication?
 
I am running WinXP Home SP3, other IS software running permanently are Comodo 5 Sandbox/Firewall/Defense+, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Free and Unchecky.

To avoid that happening, close that dialog, after that, when Avira Update dialog asks to Cancel, click Yes.An offer of free anti-virus software is essentially a marketing technique...a way of advertising and enticement to get folks to try a product and if they like it, to purchase the full or pro version.

As such, users may have to deal with occassional pop-up but nuisance advertising and prompts to upgrade to the paid version.

I use a third-party firewall that allows full control.

But some of my friends use the firewall built in to Window 7. To each their own.

I've taken a look at that firewall, and it's actually fairly flexible.

It has quite of bit of incoming traffic blocked by default, but leaves outgoing traffic wide open. I want to help them restrict outgoing traffic on their systems.

Many of them use Avira's free antivirus. I would like to configure their Windows 7 firewall (aka Windows Firewall with Advanced Security) to work with Avira, while still blocking as much outgoing traffic as possible for them.

Blocking all outgoing traffic with the Windows firewall is trivial, but I haven't found any documentation on Avira's site on how they recommend configuring the Windows 7 firewall to work with their product (perhaps because they want you to buy their pro version that has a firewall, but as of this post, their pro firewall does not even support IPv6!).

So before I reinvent the wheel and figure it out myself, has anyone already set up the Windows 7 firewall's outgoing traffic rules to work properly with Avira free antivirus (that is, not break it or impair its functionality in any way)?

Also, interestingly, I see no Incoming Rules for the Windows 7 firewall for Avira on their systems. How is this possible given that they regularly get program and definition updates?

I've tried many free antivirus over the years, but these two have always consistently been the ones I liked the most.

After some issues with Windows 10 last year, I had to briefly switch to Avira but after the issues were fixed I got back to Avast because it was the one I had learned to rely upon in the last few years. However, I'm open to reassess my position between these two excellent products. Something that has also spurred me to reassess the situation was the fact that LifeHacker has recently changed their recommendation from Avast to Avira as the "The Best (Free) Antivirus App for Windows".

On one hand Avast offers a more complete feature set:

File System Shield
Web Shield
Mail Shield
Behavior Blocker (DeepScreen)

Still, I disable the E-mail blocker because I solely use Web mail. I also disable the Web shield because:

It seems to slightly slow down my browsing
I don't like to have all my HTTP traffic analyzed by the AV or any other program
Sometimes it doesn't play well with HTTPS because it internally to scan the encrypted traffic which changes the original website's certificate (I know I can selectively disable the Web Shield for HTTPS only)

So, in practice, I have been using the File System Shield and the Behavior Blocker at default sensitivity settings (no Hardened Mode) to avoid too many False Positives and issues with less known software. I've had no problems with this set up for a long time.

So-so Malware Blocking
Last year Avira earned an impressive score in my hands-on malware blocking test, with 97 percent detection and 9.7 of 10 possible points. Not this year.

When I opened a folder containing my current collection of malware samples, Avira wiped out 72 percent immediately. That's good, but Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 at BitDefender, F-Secure Anti-Virus 2015, and ThreatTrack Vipre Antivirus 2015 all managed 83 percent.

I also tested Avira using hand-modified versions of the same sample set. For each file, I changed the name, appended nulls to change the file size, and tweaked some non-executable characters. Avira missed three of the tweaked files. However, it detected another two tweaked files whose originals it missed. I can't explain that.

After launching all of the remaining samples, I evaluated how well Avira handled them. Overall, it detected 76 percent of the malware samples and scored 7.4 points, quite a drop from last year.

Good Malicious URL Blocking
In the real world, you're more likely to encounter a brand-new malware attack via a malicious or compromised website, so I test for that ability as well. I start with a feed of newly-discovered malicious URLs supplied by MRG-Effitas. After filtering out those that don't point directly to malicious executables, I try loading each one in a browser to see what (if anything) the antivirus will do.

Quite a few of the URLs were already defunct, despite being no more than four hours... Read more

Second, I know so little about computers that I never know how to explain my problem. And if you need info from me, you pretty much have to tell me how to get that info.

I've been using avira free antivirus for several months now. I noticed today that it has not updated since Dec 16. I tried updating and it would not do it. I reinstalled and restarted my computer and now I can't even get the umbrella to open. When I try to turn it on, it says my computer is not secure, a service is not working correctly.

I'm using windows xp. And I need aspirin. Oh, I did run malwarebytes and it found 2 bugs and supposedly removed them but still can't run avira. And I also did a scan with avira but I don't remember if that was before I reinstalled or after. I think it was after. It was today, that much I know.

They need to work more on the Suspicious Behavior (HIPS), some malware can bypass it.

Today I installed Avira free on my desktop computer and I noticed that there isn't web protection component without custom install. Does Browser Safety completely cover this component's function?

If there is a malicious element in a webpage, will ABS block it, or the URL must be generally blacklisted in Avira's servers as malicious so to be blocked? I don't know if this question has a point as I don't know if web protection component worked this way.
Any information?
Thanks.

for beta users news from today 6/4/14:

please note, that xVDF for Avira Version 2014 beta is now enabled for all future updates.

xVDF = e(x)tended VDF - a various number of VDF container files
Benefits with xVDF

Update volume of VDF files will be reduced to a minimum.
CPU resource consumption when loading VDF files will be reduced.
New xVDF update files will be downloaded and merged to one single VDF file locally on the client machine.
The scan engine just loads the single VDF file without the need of loading and merging several VDF files at every scan startup.

i am not seeing any difference so far im not sure if in fact its been updated on the build i have but i did just download it today from the beta website and did a fresh install. boot up same as before and the network still takes FOREVER to connect after a fresh start or restart. if you are a beta tester you can download it from the avira beta website.

Avira ...

As a "tricked-out" basic scanner I like Avira...and I like the GUI but that's about it.

It does not protect system settings - like Windows firewall - and worse, it cannot even fully protect itself from shutdown.

Avira's protection model is an anachronism - a dinosaur.

Sophos Home Free Antivirus vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016. Which one do you pick and why?
 

A:Sophos Home Free Antivirus vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016

I have to say that I haven't tried Sophos until now. But my opinion about Panda goes like this.

Resource Usage (eg: CPU, RAM)?Panda is efficient in both of them, but during scans it may use more CPU resources

Real World System Impact?Quiet Low

User Friendliness? 5/5

User Interface? 5/5

Level of Protection and Features (eg: Antivirus , Firewall, Behavior Blocker)?4/5
Overall Winner? Since i haven't tried Sophos I cannot give verdict for the best between the two.

Thankyou And Happy New Year.

These are the latest changes of the new builds:

Avira Protection Cloud for Avira Free Antivirus

With Update 3 we are starting with the integration of Avira Protection Cloud in Avira Free Antivirus. This is going to be a step-by-step process to keep the workload of our servers monitored. With this initial beta build about 50% of all cloud requests will be performed.

Avira Intelligent Repair System:

AIRS is a refactoring and improvement of the current repair functionality in all Avira Windows products. AIRS will change the repair that it corresponds to current technology of malware and we are also able to react faster in repair and removal issues to clean up the infected users. For example with AIRS, we are able to delete random generated Registry keys from malware infection which was not possible before. Another highlight in AIRS is that we improved the option to change/ delete as well as create all security changes in the registry which are not located to the malicious infected path, but definitely made by malware.

Avira offers more than just an anti-virus (AV). Features that go beyond AV got integrated years ago (does anyone of you remember specific anti-spyware programs ?). I prefer to define what we offer as an add-on-security solution ? AV is shorter, but also less correct. Nonetheless shorter won.

Now we are about to stretch even further and integrate a browser into our eco system. And in case you are wondering: There are very good reasons for that.

Nowadays the top use-case for a computer is to access the internet using a browser. The infrastructure of the internet is run by different entities (routers, DNS, servers). The homepages contain executable code that is run in the browser. Manifold data formats are used in the net (HTML, JS, CSS, PNG, SVG, video formats, ?). All in all it?s a well connected and extremely complex system. And it is used to access valuable data (online banking, shopping, medical research, looking for a new job, ?) ? a disaster waiting to happen.

The browser developers (Mozilla and community, Google and community and Microsoft) are putting lots of resources into securing those browsers. And they are doing a very impressive job.

But the threats online are not getting less. There are a lot of them: Phising, insecure Wifis, malware drive-by, trackers, ? you name them!

This needs fixing.

Basically there are three points to secure:
The client (your PC and browser): Detect attacks and block them
The Internet infrastructure (like Wifis): End-to-... Read more

AIRS will change the repair that it corresponds to current technology of malware and we are also able to react faster in repair and removal issues to clean up the infected users.

Another highlight in AIRS is that we improved the option to change/ delete as well as create all security changes in the registry which are not located to the malicious infected path, but definitely made by malware.

Requirements For this test, you need to uninstall existing Avira versions from your computer. This is a closed beta, you will need to get approved before you can start testing.

These are the latest changes of the new builds:

Never expire anymore
A consumer paid product will no longer remain without updates after the product is no longer licensed. It continues to get updates (product and signature) and Real-time protection while reminding the user that he has to renew the license. All other services remain disabled.

Usability:
? After installation, start the updater by default in silent mode
? After installation, start the on demand scanner by default in minimized mode
? After installation don?t show the ?Welcome? slideup
? If an installation via Webloader is interrupted the user is asked if he intends to resume later. In this case the downloaded files are kept until the user decides to no longer continue the installation.
? If an installation via Setup (full kit or webloader) is interrupted, the user is asked if he wants to resume later.
? If an installation is interrupted because of a reboot required by the Incompatible software removal then the installation is going to be resumed automatically after reboot

Detection:
? Integrate the Avira URL Cloud in LocalDecider used in Advanced Real-time protection and Quick System Scan. This will block files downloaded from the Internet if the Avira?s URL cloud detects them as suspicious.

Bug fixes:
? Improvements in stability of WebProtection and Mail Protection
? Improvements in speed of WebProtection
? Fixes in Real-time protection

Version 1.0 of Avira Browser Safety for Internet Explorer

Includes all functionality we are currently offering for Firefox and Chrome
Currently limited to Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 10 and 11
Windows 8 as well as Internet Explorer 9 support will follow later.
Please keep in mind this is V1.0 for IE, in case you experience any issues use the bug report form
Known issues

UI is not inserted on several pages (e.g. "http://www.bing.com/search?q=test ").
UI fails sometimes to render Avira Offers.
Icon doesn't work on "avira.com ".
Icon responds with a noticeable delay after using it on a page with Avira Offers.
Installation

Close Internet Explorer
Run "avira_browser_safety_IE_1.0_beta.msi".
Open IE and click "Enable" on the prompt (see "enable_addon.png" attached). ABS will work for all the tabs being opened after that click. To avoid misleading with already opened tabs, it's better to restart IE.
Notes:

ABS icon appears in the "Command bar" of IE which is hidden by default. You might want to enable it in "View -> Toolbars -> Command bar"
Add-on version is "1.0.0.0" for now, but we'll change that to keep same versions in all browsers.

A:Avira Browser Safety beta for Internet Explorer

Version 1.4.3 of Avira Browser Safety for Internet Explorer

Added update functionality.
With this new version we added a self-update functionality into the Avira Browser Safety extension for Internet Explorer. The version you are downloading here is always going to update itself every 6 hours to the latest beta version.
If you are currently testing Avira System Speedup you might encounter a pop-up telling you that a windows scheduler task has been added during the installation of ABS for IE. This is intended and will be improved in the future to make it more user-friendly.
Once the update has been triggered automatically after 6 hours you should receive the version 1.4.3.406.

Hello everyone, which one do you think is better? Personally I would choose and use Avast because Avire has terrible 0-day protection and heuristics but what do you think, and does anyone know why their file scanner is called Luke Filewalker?

Hey there

Does anyone know what on earth is going on with Avira?? It hasn't updated for the last 2 days...consequently nothing running on the computer. When I click on update it just has that little blue line showing the progress on the update screen. The line is like a 1/4 inch long...and stays that way. Won't get past 7 kbytes. Aaaahh. I have 4 kids and me on this computer...A LOT.

I have windows xp, by the way. Commodo is on here. I have run malwarebytes..nothing. Spywareblaster..nothing. Obviously no scan from avira. Superantispyware...nothing. This is getting retarded. I uninstalled and reinstalled yesterday. Still no updating. What gives!!

Thanx for any input. Must get my ghost shaped and decorated brownies to my daughters school for the halloween party this afternoon. Eeeek. Look at the time. Gotta run. Hopefully when I get back someone will have an idea for see. See ya.

Hi,

I keep getting a window popping up saying the free Avira 9 is due to expire and to download the free Avira 10, but when I click to download, the website doesn't load. I have tried searching for free Avira 10 download and I am taking to an Avira site that wants you to pay.

Is there anyway of downloading this Avria 10 free?

A:Free Avira 10 download

I've already downloaded the free Avira 10 about 18 hours ago. I downloaded and installed it without problems so I'm not sure why you are having trouble.

Following Avira's links, you end up here: CNET

Perhaps their servers were especially busy with the new release.

Hi,
Since my Avira Free A/V program updated itself the it keeps hanging/stopping on some .txt files. The first was a bog standard .txt file the after deleting the file it stopped on another .txt file and wouldn't budge. Unfortunately I cannot access the .txt file as it's in C:\RECYCLER\....\Dc14.txt and even though I've done a search and ticked for show hidden files I cannot get to it.

Any ideas.

Regards,

Dave

BTW I'm running XP Pro

A:Avira Free & .txt files

I've used Avira Free for a few years now and never encountered a situation as you describe.

There is no reason for Avira to become hung up on any file type or file.

http://techsalsa.com/what-is-recycler-folder-and-how-to-remove-it/

There is the possibility that malware files may be detected by Avira which cannot be handled...although I have never experienced such and would not expect this to be the case.

I downloaded and uninstalled the free version of Avira AV (was using Microsoft Security Essentials). It would not update properly, so I decided to uninstall it. I used Revo Uninstaller (advanced mode). After the uninstall I rebooted and Avira is still there. It does not appear in the Control Panel/Programs & Features and it is not in the list of programs in the start menu. I also downloaded and ran the Avira registry cleaner, which removed some registry items but left several others.

I could use some help in getting rid of this.

A:I cannot uninstall Avira Free AV

I think I solved it on my own. I re-installed the Avira AV over what was on my computer. This gave me a screen that gave me the option to remove the program, which I did. UI then ran the Avira registry cleaner again and was able to delete the remaining Avira related registry items.

Good morning, I have started testing Avira Free antivirus and I'm pleased about the results, but I have a question about his updates.. I used this product in the past and I remember that I had to manually update it each time because it wasn't updating automatically.. Is there a way to set the product for automatic updates? I took a look at the settings and there is an option to automatically update at a certain time, but I didn't see anything other..
 

A:Avira free updates

By default, Avira Free will automatically update in every 2 hours, while the paid version (Avira Pro) can be configured to automatically update in every 15 minutes. It will also update immediately when the PC is connected to the network.

I don't know if anyone noticed this but last night I noticed there was a new Voodooshield Beta available, so I went to download it. When I did try and download the new Voodooshield, Avira stopped the download and did a scan to see if the software was safe or not. I've used Avira quite a few times in the past and never seen it do this before. This is pretty cool, I think the new Free Avira is by far the best freeware antivirus. It's simple and it works!

My daughter rang me after she tried to plug in her new mobile dongle into her laptop - Avira flagged up a trojan -, sorry don';t have details and wouldn't let the software install. I got her to do various scans with Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, everything came up clean, so in the end I got her to uninstall Avira Free and install Bitdefender.

Lo and behold I plug in a brand new camera tonight into my desktop and get the same problem - Tr/Crypt.XPACK.Gen Trojan - I've also run Malwarebytes and Superantispyware scans and both clean. I also use Avira free.

Daughter's is a laptop running Win XP

Mines a desktop running Win 7

her's could have something on it - but am pretty sure mine doesn't, as I know this pc inside out, what are the chances of Avira flagging up false positives on two separate computers?
Thanks

I hope this is the correct place for this post as I don't need help removing anything.

I had Avira Antivirus (free) on my PCs - gave it another chance - and just the other day it popped up a window reporting that Superantispyware contained a trojan and subsequently quarantined it. (Happened on 2 computers I have). Because Avira admitted - about a year ago or so - that on some systems it had a memory leak - and that was true because one of my PCs would completely freeze up after a while - I replaced it with another antivirus program.

Has anyone else had this trojan alert ? I presume it's a false positive because Superantispyware has a good reputation in it's field.

I'm becoming increasingly put off with Avira - even tho it's highly rated on many sites/forums.
 

A:Avira (free) problems

I would assume that it's neither an accidental detection nor a sign that SAS is malicious.

The more likely issue is that Avira detected the signature files which SAS uses to detect malware. I've seen this once when I accidentally ran a scan (I think it was MBAM though it may have been SAS) at the time my Avast scheduled scan was going to begin. It didn't happen unless they were scanning at the same time, but Avira may be different.
