Avira Antivirus for Windows, version 2015 update 8 has been released on February 12th, 2015.
Revised update mechanism offering more flexibility and better support for scenarios using a proxy
Additional sensors for Behavior-based Detection have been implemented
The Avira Free Antivirus detection update frequency has been increased (default frequency is set on 2h, same as Avira Antivirus Pro)
New installations include the new update frequency
Existing installations will not be updated by default. The 2h interval of the detection update has to be set manually by the user (An automatic change of existing installations will be presumably implemented with a future update)
I am using it since just two days ago . Has things that I like (detection, simple interface ) .I have it working with Privatefirewall and is light and very effective combo.
Not my favorite , but it's very good .
Why on Avira website offline installer of version 18.104.22.1684 has been replaced with installer of older version of the product? Also I would like to ask you why this older version the day after installation of the product downloaded and installed Avira wigdet in the background (which was installed previously only when using Avira Free Antivirus Launcher)? Fortunately I was able to remove it, because it's separate program but I down want this situation to happen ever again.
