Avira Free Antivirus Editor's Review

As we already head for the last quarter of 2011, most of the developers have released their products for 2012. Avira Operations GmbH makes no exception and presents their latest security pack including the popular Avira Free Antivirus 2012.

The first visible difference from former Avira programs is actually the name, which has been changed to be easily accepted on international markets. As a result Avira has changed not only a single name, but the names of its entire product line and some of the most important product modules. Also a strong sense of usability can be seen into the new license renewal method. Starting with 2012 release, the product will automatically detect that a new license has been generated and paid for and will then renew its license. The user is notified via email by the product that the license has been renewed and that there is no interaction required.

Avira Internet Security comes with an improved interface with many visual changes that reflect the status of the most critical components you use. The entire status panel has been redesigned in order to allow a fast configuration and control of all options and features. In case of emergency, the casual user will not be bothered with dozens of settings because now Avira can decide what needs to be done to protect the your computer. And this can be done with only one click: Fix problem.

Along with simplicity comes also a decreased resource usage and a much faster initialization because the engine is loaded only once. A lower memory consumption is the result of re-usage and recycling of components that have already been loaded in memory. The integrity of the program has been strengthened in order to resist against targeted malware attacks. This means that Avira Internet Security can function without many registry keys while featuring better protection against process termination, component deletion and many others.

The FireWall included in the Avira Internet Security is now able to filter Ipv6 addresses on the adapter level and also create rules for applications trying to connect over Ipv6. This completes the FireWall solution and assures the customers that even if they use the newest IP protocol they are still protected. Also, the Mail and Web protection components are able to work now in a pure Ipv6 environment.

Pluses: free, improved interface, lower memory consumption, full support for Ipv6;

Drawbacks/flaws: -

In conclusion: The free module from Avira Internet Security 2012 offers basic features that are enough to create a secure environment for the home user.
