Avira Antivirus Software brand has offered virus protection software, services, and expertise for nearly 30 years.
Their products have consistently been solid; our testing this year showed the Avira Antivirus Premium package's spyware detection, USB scanning, and virus removal services kept that level of consistency.
Avira Antivirus Software offers quite solid real time virus scanning and fairly good manual virus scanning.
The product is quite user-friendly with easy installation (and removal if necessary).
However, the Avira Internet Security updates help to make online banking, gaming, and shopping a more secure experience.
The interface is quite well designed and tech support is remarkably helpful.
Everyone--not just gamers and heavy internet users--would be well served to compare the features between versions of Avira.
Sure, the gaming mode is a useful feature.
It lets PC gamers enjoy the full experience of their games without antivirus software notification pop-ups.
Really this is just the start though.
Avira Internet Security logs the allowable application and keeps them on a whitelist for future use.
The software also provides significant file back up and online storage for users with a heavy volume of files.
The strongest additional feature offered in the Avira Internet Security update is the email scanning and protection service.
This, the top-of-the-line version of Avira, offers only one significant feature the Internet Security Suite doesn't: driver updates.
If you're an avid gamers, this upgrade is worth considering both because of its gamer mode and because it'll help ensure your PC has the latest drivers for your hardware.
New drivers typically mean two things: speed and stability, both of which are important for gamers.
For everyone else, it's value is harder to quantify.
There's no question there are real security issues with drivers that get fixed as newer versions are released.
The thing is, these issues aren't as frequently used by viruses to infect your computer.
Even still, it is one more way it's helping make your PC safer and keeping your PC more stable and running its best.
