Near the end of September of this year, the German company Avira, expert in Computer Security, launched its new line of products: Antivirus Free, Antivirus Premium, and Internet Security. You can now download the free version of this efficient antivirus for your own computer.
The company’s free version of Avira antivirus stands out among the rest of the product line. Among the features it offers is effective protection against viruses and malware, highlighted by its ability to consume very little resources, which is what makes it ideal for low-end computers.
One of the noteworthy updates that has been added to this new 2013 version is a module designed to monitor your activity on social networks using a defense system against threats found on Facebook, Twitter, or Google +, among others. It also has parental control features.
Generally speaking, Avira 2013 is an antivirus capable of detecting and eliminating more than 150,000 virus threats, trojans, worms, and other types of malware. One of its major features is its use of AHeAD technology, a service that keeps unknown, suspicious code from executing, thus protecting your computer from viruses even though they may not be on your hard drive.
The new version also includes a feature that keeps your user activity on the Internet from being tracked by companies that want your information for different purposes, such as for displaying personalized advertising.
Another exciting feature is the Website Security Advisory, which offers a security scale of the websites that appear in an Internet search, which allows the user to know how secure a website is before visiting it.
One thing that may present a problem with Avira Free Antivirus 2013 is that it isn’t officially supported on Windows 8, although we have installed it on our test computer without any problems. Besides this, and given its proven ability to protect from a wide array of viruses and malware, Avira is considered one of the best free antivirus software, and a praiseworthy alternative to other more popular programs such as Avast or AVG Free Antivirus.
