    I never found Avira to be "so nagging" so I've never left. It still works best for me out of all the free AVs so I don't see myself switching anytime soon.

    I know how to disable the NAG SCREEN. I mean is the Avira still have very high false positive? It detects most cracks/hacks/keygens(LOL) as dangerous objects. Sad.

    I'm not sure just how risky or dangerous your computer usage is, but I have not had a false positive from Avira in over a year on any of my seven computers.

    I experienced a lot of fp's with Avira.
    MSE is much less annoying from install, and has the lowest fp's in contrast to Avira and Avast, which is one of the reasons I stick with it.
    I haven't experienced any issues even when checking/using cracks for testing purposes.

    Avira is much more sensitive to these things and much more prohibitive in terms of cracks (which is to a level justifiable because they want to prevent illegal use of software ... although, that's also slightly going into territory of prohibiting what one can do with a personal computer or not - from a certian POV).
