Avira AntiVir Personal Free Antivirus Program

I have in the past recommended some antivirus programs, which I have used with success, such as ClamWin, Avast etc.

These are good programs and they are free. About a couple of weeks ago, in one of my research trips through the Web I came across some interesting information on another free antivirus program called

"Avira AntiVir Personal Free Antivirus".

I went to their website:

and downloaded the program. I must say that it is far superior than any antivirus free program I have tried.

The description of the program is as follows:

Avira AntiVir Personal - FREE Antivirus is a reliable free antivirus solution, that constantly and rapidly scans your computer for malicious programs such as viruses, Trojans, backdoor programs, hoaxes, worms, dialers etc. Monitors every action executed by the user or the operating system and reacts promptly when a malicious program is detected.

Avira AntiVir Personal is a comprehensive, easy to use antivirus program, designed to offer reliable free of charge virus protection to home-users, for personal use only, and is not for business or commercial use. Available for Windows or UNIX.

They also have  "Premium" and  "Security" versions of the program, which if you want them, you'll have to pay for it, however, the free version really has most of the features that everyday computer user needs, no more no less.

If you go to this address:

You can also download the program and also see the features covered by the three versions referred above.

Try the free version and compare it against other security programs you may have installed in your computer, AND if you still run your computer without antivirus protection, (believe you me there are many users in that category), please, please, install this program. You will not regret it.
