Avira Free Antivirus

Avira Free Antivirus boosts comprehensive protection against all types of virus and threats, protects your privacy, secures your data, and removes threats. Avira can eliminate most types of malware, worm, including viruses, trojans and spyware. The software offers a Browser Tracking Blocker, a tool that prevents ad networks from monitoring what you do online, blocks fraudulent and malicious websites, and checks each site you visit providing a site rating.

Web analytics, advertisers, and other components tracking your online activity will be blocked. Accepting Avira Free Antivirus default installation, the Browser Tracking Blocker tool changes your search provider and your home page to Avira SafeSearch, but you can come back to your preferences.

You can also track your children’s social media activity thanks to the Avira’s Free SocialShield application. Real Time Cloud Protection is another Avira tool that analyzes hidden and unknown files in the cloud to protect you in real time from threats as they emerge. Hidden applications bundled with legitimate software will be blocked by Avira as soon as detected.

If you love to shopping online, you’ll appreciate the Avira Price Comparison tool that lets you save your money. Avira Antivirus Free runs in the background without slowing your PC performances. Pop-up windows are sporadic and not distracting. Avira Free Antivirus doesn’t provide a real firewall, but rather an integrated front-end to the Windows firewall.

Avira offers free tutorials, videos, manuals, and FAQ’s to help novice users. Avira Free Antivirus is free forever. It requires Windows 7/8/8.1/10 all 32/64 bit, 1GHz CPU, 1GB memory, 800MB HDD.


Although it doesn’t measure up against the best competitors, Avira Free Antivirus works quite well and labs give it good marks. It won’t cost you anything, but you can find better solutions.
