Antivir is a fine program
and I prefer it to AVG as well. Only in the free versions, AVG has the edge, since it will scan incoming email. The Avira/Antivir does not scan email in the free version. A major mistake on their part I believe. They make a damn fine AV package, but if it was not "crippled" in free use, they would get a whole lot more attention and recomendations. I usually urge people to antivir or NOD32 when looking at paid for AV products. And AVG when looking at free products.
