How about an application that offers on demand scans for viruses, Trojans, backdoor programs, hoaxes, worms, dialers and other malicious programs? Or a free program that allows you to repair, delete, block, rename and quarantine programs, or files.
Well you’re in luck. Avira AntiVir Personal will meet, and even exceed, all of your requirements. This anti-virus program offers all of this comprehensive protection within an easy to use interface.
In the time I have been running Avira on my systems, including a system with Windows 7 Release Candidate, I continue to be impressed with its performance, and I have come to rely on it as my primary anti-virus application. I highly recommend this one.
