„Avira Free Antivirus“ (formerly known as AntiVir) provides your computer with effective protection against viruses and removes malware quickly and reliably. Two security features are available to the user: While the integrated real-time scanner continuously monitors your system, cautious contemporaries can use the file checker to scan individual downloads, complete folders or the entire hard drive manually for malware.
In addition to viruses, worms and Trojans, the antivirus program also knows ad- and spyware. On board is also a heuristic detection system that can detect previously unknown malware on the basis of typical behavioral patterns.
In order to protect your PC, you should only rely on the best antivirus software available.
The free virus scanner can also detect programs that violate your privacy. However, you must activate this additional option in the settings under „General“ and „Hazard categories“. Check the option „Programs that violate privacy“.
