Avira Free Antivirus is a utility that can be used freely by any user who wants to keep his system protected against viruses, malware, spyware and other types of harmful elements. The application can be used easily and its configuration is done automatically during the installation process. Users can define multiple behavior profiles in order to keep the app running at lower or higher priority during certain events. The app can constantly scan the system in the background and users can allow it to use more resources when the PC is idle.
Another feature of this antivirus provides internet protection. Websites that are flagged as potentially harmful are prevented from loading and users have the option to proceed at their own risk. Spam messages are no longer a problem as email accounts can be cleaned and then monitored in order to avoid any unwanted message from being delivered to the address. Notifications can be toggled on or off based on category or altogether, depending on one’s preferences.
