I tried the product, now I want to uninstall so I went to Control Panel -> uninstall etc. but the program is still there, it even created a new icon in my desktop after uninstall (?). It appears no more in uninstall program list but it´s there, there are services working I can´t stop; when looking for info about uninstall it takes you to avira official website where you can download tools that will not remove the program ie. removaltool-win32-en it´s another trojan removal tool, not an uninstaller. I even downloaded additional uninstall software (revo uninstaller) but didn´t help.
I hate it when software developers do this. Before I tried to uninstall the program I was satisfied with it, now I´m angry, and I´m still looking for info on how to uninstall it.

It seems the solution to this is boot system in safe mode, manually delete forders and files and the run Avira´s registry cleaner.

Stupid Program

Stupid Program with high false alarm


No more Pop-up ad

Positive Comment by lucasffg about Avira Free Antivirus Nov 2013

New CEO, new direction. Avira Free Antivirus no longer has those annoying pop-ups and seems to be getting even better each day.


Used to be good

Negative Comment by Pietzki about Avira Free Antivirus Mar 2012

Avira used to be the best antivirus company for years, but recently decided to partner with and uniblue, two dubious companies whose programs are detected as malware by most antivirus programs.


And in the latest version these are impossible to get rid of,
even using the apps designed specifically to get rid of Avira pop-up ads,
and EVEN after deleting a number of files and DLLs.

This thing is NUISANCEWARE
and in fact,
it will cause you MORE inconvenience than 95% of viruses.


Piece of shit imo. Slows down some programs a lot. Interface is bad. Crap ad popups even while gaming in full screen. UNINSTALL!!!


Best Anti-Virus I've ever used. My system is light on resources to begin with and love Avira. I most likely won't use anything else.


It has the highest detection rates according to AV-comparatives. I love it !


The lightest free antivirus

Positive Comment by Michel about Avira Free Antivirus Feb 2010

Avira is the lightest free choice anti virus.
Excellent heuristic scanner.


Of the three A freeware's- AVG, avast and avira, I've liked avira the best. It seems the lightest, has the most features and the least nag screens, and has always worked well for me
