Virus attacks are all too common and Avira AntiVir can protect against these menaces and others including worms, trojans and dialers.

The AntiVir Guard is constantly working in the background and checks every file as it is used by Windows or other software. This includes heuristic scanning to check for viruses that have not been formally identified.

Scans can also be started manually or scheduled at daily or weekly intervals.

Should a virus be found, it can either be removed or moved to a quarantine area.

This new version is a brand new release, with a new name, improved user interface and much more.

Note that you can upgrade to the Pro version at a cost.
