Dear Sir,

Avasta and Avira are good antivirus for home use,But Avasta offers more features compare to Avira,main drawback of Avira is it slows down the system.So you can use avast for your PC.If you want to purchase best antivirus go for Kaspersky 2010 Antivirus.

i think it helps

Have a nice day
good luck

Well that is the problem .. if you have more than one anti-virus program installed and running they will detect one another and report viruses.

you need to decide on one and stick with it. Personally I have used AVG anti-virus and I have been very satisfied with it. easy to use interface and it rates web searches and warns you of attack sites befor you open them. very handy.

you also should install a spyware program. Spybot search and destroy is free ware that is excellent and will run in conjunction with anti-virus w/o confusing the program.

I personally use Avast and that is working fine for me, so if you will follow my suggestion I will stick with Avast as my anti virus.

Virus Infection - The best FREE Anti-Virus software on the net


When it comes down to viruses you may think to yourself antivirus software is going to cost a bunch, but in actual fact there are quite a few really good FREE antivirus programs out there. Here I list a few.
Avira AntiVir Personal
Avast! Free
AVG Free
Microsof Security Essentials

I've included a few statistics and figures to show you how effective each of these anti virus programs are.

The best FREE AntiVirus programs according to detection rates are:
Avira AntiVir Personal - 99.8%
Avast! Free AntiVirus 5 - 99.3%
AVG Free AntiVirus - 98.3%
Microsoft Security Essentials 97.6%
This shows that Avira has the highest virus detection as it finds 99.8% of virus' on on your system.

The best FREE AntiVirus programs according to false/positive alarms on a clean file set are:
Microsoft Security Essentials 3 files
Avast! Free AntiVirus 5 - 9 files
Avira AntiVir Personal - 10 files
AVG Free AntiVirus - 19 files
Microsoft's Security Essentials has the least false reports out of all of them with a low 3 files on a clean set.

The best FREE AntiVirus programs according to scanning speed are:
Avast! Free AntiVirus 5 - 17.2 MB/s
- 15.1 MB/s
AVG Free AntiVirus - 13 MB/s
Microsoft Security Essentials 5.9 MB/s
Be prepared for a fast accurate virus scan with Avast! as it takes first place here with scan speeds.

Where to download

In general any one of these 4 free antivirus programs are good. I personally use Avast! Free AntiVirus 5 as it's fast, reliable and constantly up-to-date.

I want avast! antivirus Home Edition 6.0.934 Beta / 5.1.889 registration key


avast! antivirus Home Edition 6.0.934 Beta / 5.1.889 is a free program but the registration must be renewed once a year. You can ask avast to send you a new registration code.

Alternatively install the new version of Avast.

Can you give a a free license key for avira antivirus?


All you have to do is go here and read the Note. There you will find a link to a free license key. http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/AntiVir-Personal-Edition.shtml
I have used Avira AntiVir, AVG, and Avast. Of the three IMO based on my experience, Avast is the best free one you can get. I highly recommend Avast which you can get for free here. http://download.cnet.com/Avast-Free-Antivirus/3000-2239_4-10019223.html

Download older version of Avira Antivir


Why xp SP1??.

If you dont update your OS, even with the best Antivirus you will be in big trouble with security breaches/holes.

IF your copy of windows will not pass the WGA then you are out of luck with Avira . Avira needs SP2 so you could try AVAST, its min requirements are.
Processor Pentium 3, 128 MB RAM, 100 MB of free hard disk space
Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 (32/64 bit)
