    Hi all

    Avira Antivirus for Windows New User Interface

    Avira Antivirus for Windows New User Interface

    We are currently developing a new User Interface for the Avira Antivirus for Windows and we are thrilled to show it to you!

    It has a modern, fresh look which fits the overall Avira design. This easy to use interface simplifies and reduces the number of interactions a user has to make in order to achieve to most common tasks. We've also made sure that all the relevant information is presented in an easy to understand fashion.

    With best Regards
    Mops21

    Don't like the material look. I love the "old" look. It is much clearer and you can access to all functions better.

    I don't like the new UI either. Looks way too bloated. It reminds me of the Avast UI: too much things on one space. And they seem to have added ads into the ui, which the old one didn't have (only popups).
    It does match with the looks of the (completely useless and too heavy) Avira Launcher though.

    I will stay away from Avira no matter what.
    I will never forget the huge amount of bloatware that came with Avira Free AV suite the last time I tried it.

    Hmm.. Avira is still missing some important modules, like BB/HIPS and Anti-ransomware module. But I think the ui is better than the old one.

    Web protection is also shown here.
    I hope it would be full-fledged web protection module(it looks like so) and not only the browser safety add-on.

    Would be awesome if the new UI just showed all the antivirus settings instead of trying to push for users to download other bloatware.

    Then again I feel like avast and other AVs are also doing this.

    it took them 4 years to make a new UI, by my calculations, we can see a dynamic module in the next 8 years.

    I can not even believe what I'm seeing, finally Avira woke up to the modern world, I liked it, from the 16th I'll do some tests with him :)

    Does this also mean they may have gotten rid of some of the annoyances they had? like the quick scan after detection action?

    And I'm starting to lose hope that Avira will ever integrate a true zero day Behavior Blocker or HIPS or Sandbox and even if they did...chances of them
    adding it to their free offering is about 5% or less. It just doesn't fit in their business model. Which seems to go against the grain of AV's nowadays

    Their sticking with "GIve nothing for free"

    why shouldn't they? avira is a profit-making organization not the red cross.

    Well, for sure the new UI is better than the old one imo, if we consider that marketing knows that the first thing the user looks at a software is the UI... the Avira devs were sleeping so far :D

    I actually think the new GUI looks very Nice and clean. The colour scheme does remind me of McAfee however. Too bad it does mis some important modules that others do have in their free version. A shame that the focus on bombarding user with bloatware instead of protecting them better.....it could have more potential.
