memory usage is very high :-( even though i don't have the "Realtime Protection" option running - also known as AntiVir Guard (i think).

A decent Antivirus, but as usual this isn't the version it's claimed to be. I don't know who keeps uploading it to fileforum, but it's NEVER the version they claim it to be. I don't know whether they're deliberately posting incorrect version numbers, or simply don't have a clue what they're doing. This is claimed to be build 4052, but it's actually 3885.

I used to rate Avira highly, but on many computers that I installed it on the web browser protection would just stop working. Maybe they fixed this now... I will need convincing.
Odd three updates in three consecutive business days in a row???
Higher memory requirements ? - AntiVir Free Antivirus - Avira Support Forum maybe there are some bugs being smashed by developers...
Still use it the free one. Still don't find any better than this
