    I gotta agree plus you can specify which drive(s) you want scanned. I do like Avira's UI. I've had both AV's deny website malware. Avast takes it one step further as it notifies you then replaces the attacking with a blank page on your web browser. :cool:

    Updates are reliable too.

    You can specify the drive to be scanned in Avira too. That option is under the scanner menu.

    I looked but couldn't find it. :confused:

    edit: NVM, I found it but updates are horribly bad now in XP. I'm thinking Avast might replace Avira here as well.

    I've never had any problems with Avira and 6 scheduled updates a day. Still, if it doesn't work for you, Avast is the next best free AV.

    I have the opposite situation from yours. I have no problems updating Avira 9 on any of my XP computers, but on my Vista computers (with similar specs) it takes forever to scan for updates before the download begins. At first I thought it was just a weird coincidence, but it's been like this since I switched from Avira 8 to Avira 9. Would the operating system make that much of a difference?

    I have my AVIRA Antivir Personal 9 update everyday.
    I have ZERO issues for it.
    As long as you configure your AVIRA suit to your system. You would find it takes very very less resources with crazy detection rate and virus database.

    Yup! Some people may have issues with AVIRA.
    However, I tested AVIRA and AVAST using 2 computers. Insert virus together LOL!
    Indeed, AVIRA detect rate is faster than AVAST!
    But I think they are about the same. Because AVAST! have its own special feature as well AVIRA.
    I love AVIRA Guard-On detection(fast) and autoblock spywares(old, new, unseen and whatever).

    The problem I had with Avast 4.8 is that it was more resources-heavy than Avira. On the same machine there was a noticeable difference in performance between the two, in Avira's favour.

    Avira is very famous on its damn light resources ability!
    I like Avira very much!
    AVG is a resources hog =.=! Avast! still OK not too much as AVG does.

    The best layout design I think is AVG, AVG would pawn both AVIRA and AVAST! in term of layout design.
