Avira Antivirus Review

Avira hijacked my email server which caused me to have to reset my computer and totally screwed my password that I am unable to reset without my Exchange server costing me valuable business and money. Totally unacceptable that this should be allowed to happen on my HP laptop that I depend on 24/7. I am beyond outraged!

I noticed that the avira umbrella was closed. Upon investigation, I discovered that avira was claiming that my contract was up when it still had a year to go. In the past, I have gotten around this by rebooting, but I decided to try to reach avira customer support to...

Avira constantly pops up at random times. For example, I'm on Priceline trying to book a hotel. It won't even let me search because if I click the search button, a window for upgrading my Avira protection pops up without pulling up any searches. I've been trying to...
