Pros:  Excellent malware detection, low on resources, default setting are good, easy installation. Scans are relatively fast. Can be considered a "set & forget" antivirus. It's that easy ans simple.

Cons:  Installation is long. The Avira web page service is not needed for the antivirus software to work so I uninstalled it.

Other Thoughts:  Very good and simple and easy. If you are looking for a good hassle free antivirus, this is it.... Avira Free V .... enjoy free security...
