Avira Free Antivirus is the latest edition of the powerful, free antivirus software for personal and home use. The award-winning program protects against all kinds of malware threats like viruses, worms, spyware and Trojans.

Features and Functions

The installation process requires minimal user intervention because the downloaded online installer will automatically download and install the main program. It is advisable that you either uninstall or disable any current antivirus program to avoid possible conflicts.

The software provides both PC and internet protection by default. Depending on your preferences, you may perform quick or deep scan on either the internal hard disk or removable drives. Advanced users can fine-tune the program to work as they want using many configuration options.

The PUA Shield identifies potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) that may be hidden within legitimate software. Such applications may redirect users to other websites, display ads or slow down infected systems.

The real-time scanning feature enables the free antivirus software to provide protection against unknown files. It analyzes the files anonymously from millions of users around the world. When it detects a suspicious file, it sends the file's digital fingerprint to the cloud where it is checked against a comprehensive database. Once the file has been identified as either infected or safe, the program returns the information to the user's computer.

The antivirus allows you to schedule regularly recurring jobs like executing scan jobs and updating virus definitions. You can assign a particular profile for the job you are scheduling. You may schedule the job to execute immediately, at login, at a given interval or on a one-off basis.
