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 .

I like it, liked it years ago too but yeah, that's another story.
Also back then... they didn't have as many executables screaming for internet access. OMG!

C:\program files (x86)\avira\my avira\avira.oe.systray.exe
C:\program files (x86)\avira\antivir desktop\ipmgui.exe
C:\program files (x86)\avira\antivir desktop\avconfig.exe
C:\program files (x86)\avira\antivir desktop\avcenter.exe
C:\program files (x86)\avira\my avira\avira.oe.servicehost.exe
C:\program files (x86)\avira\antivir desktop\update.exe
C:\program files (x86)\avira\antivir desktop\avguard.exe
.. like, what the hell? lol...

It offered to take over modification responsibility for Windows Firewall, but I prefer to use Windows Firewall Control 4.

Luke Filewalker FTW!

Why on Avira website offline installer of version 15.0.8.624 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.

Getting an error telling me that the minimum update frequency must be 6 hours...

The latest version of Avira Free is 14.0.7.468 which doesn't let you switch update frequencies to 2 hours.

Hi, I found how you can get the 15 free. You need to download from here. I hope that helps, if you download from other source it will be 14, you can't upgrade so try this one.
:)
