recently Avira runs very light on my system and the cloud protection is more sensitive, when I tested malware the (cloud) notification often shows up, it's different from few weeks ago when Avira was so heavy on my system and the cloud detection was hardly seen. Now I'm using Avira free AV (without firewall module) with CFW combo after replacing Avast free, no performance impact, even I think Avira is better to be added with CFW as when I tested malware using Avast CFW combo, the system sometimes freezes for few minutes and the explorer.exe is crashed. Avira performance improves a lot

did they move the detection to be fully in the cloud? because mostly detection now by the cloud
No? I test Avira everyday and i see ( cloud ) everyday.
why don't you participate in MH? I'd love to see Avira, just use free HMpro, free zemana and PE sysinternals for 2nd opinion.

The machine i use for malware test is painfully slow...

I have my own gaming-PC but i dont trust it to test it there...


So the problem is taking the screenshots already takes like 40 mins );

Thinking about returning to avira for a spin.

back in the "day" for me (2006-2009) I switched back and forth between avast and avira but was mainly with avira.

Then as avast started adding more and more feature (ooh piece of candy!) I fully made the switch.

is there any reason to return full time? does it still even bolster the amazing signatures that it used to?
