Avira definitely has gotten worse at slowing a machine down, for sure. I have switched most of my machines to Avast also now.

Still a very good AV on a machine with the umph!!

What I hoping the changelog was going to say...


Complete software rewrite.

Run far run fast. I have never seen an application bog down an older machine as much as this one (ok well maybe mcafee and older versions of norton). This one piece of software will single handily, bring a older computer with 512 megs of ram to it's knees. The amount of ram being consumed on a clean boot of XP with nothing else running is abut 700+ megs of ram.

On the same system running Avast you are looking at 250 megs of ram being used. I have had customers download and installed this and say that it rendered their computer "unusable".

Avoid this piece of crap at all costs.
