    I had Avira for a while. It slowed down my system, locked the hosts file, and started a scan on every start up that I was not able to stop or find out how to control it. When I uninstalled it, several portions of the program remain and refused to be installed. O was finally able to remove the registry items once I found the hidden modules. A reail PIA for me...

    Was the best, but now, with the Avira Launcher which cannot be uninstalled it is bloated. I have moved to Avast.

    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...
