Avira Personal Edition Classic performs PC scans for malicious programs (viruses, Trojans, worms, backdoor programs, hoaxes, dialers etc.), at a fast speed, on a regular basis.It also keeps track of actions executed by users or the operating system and takes measures (repair, delete, block, rename and quarantine) when a threat is detected.Some antivirus programs do not include an update utility.If you are using such software, you should be able to download new virus definitions directly from the developers web page.
Other than that, Avira also encouraged the installation of Ask Toolbar bundled in the setup by enabling the Web Protection module only if it detects that the toolbar is installed.
Avira is a well known company from Germany that creates very good antivirus software.
It used to be the most downloaded software on CNET but unfortunately it is no longer listed in the top 20 downloads today.
