This review sucked!

Wait no, sorry, that was a false positive. Great review!

Sorry, had to poke fun at Avira's negatives this year.

I personally tried Avira Free for quite sometime together with CFW. Pretty silent and good scanning. That's about it.
The only thing i don't really fancy is the uninstall of avira launcher. took me quite some time to get that one off.

venustus...Good new review of Avira 2016, which feels the exact same as 2015 ;) A soild Antivirus overall.

The end question in the video, Avira is not enough as a stand alone malware protection. A decent firewall is needed to block unknown threats. I do recommend Avira free with Private Firewall, as this is my setup and its very light and a powerful combo.

I don't fully agree with people saying Avira doesn't protect against zero-day malwares. From the tests here on malware hub it looks like Avira is one of the best at catching zero-day malware thanks to its cloud analysis. Much better than other products known to have some kind of extra protection like Avast, for example, which is costantly bypassed by cryptowares nowadays.

Avast! not always bypassed,their deepscreen technology and file-rep,Evo-Gen will blocks them.

Do you mean Avira is weak on zero-day samples?
I was meaning that it is good at catching zero-day samples because it automatically uploads unknown files to the cloud
