You can forget about Avira Antivir 9, the security software solution released by the German security software provider this time last year. You can forget about it because version 10 has been released to the multitude of existing Avira users (more than 100 million) and to whoever would like a properly good software application to keep their computers safe and protected.

There are several new features in Avira Antivir 10 that make it an interesting application: behavior-based protection, enhanced security, generic repair, transparent user interface, parental controls.

AntiVir ProActiv is a feature that provides behavior-based protection and is available in Avira Antivir Premium and Avira Antivir Professional. It analyzes the way a program’s behavior to determine if it is malware or not. You know, just in case the malware slipped through the heuristic, generic and pattern-based scanning methods. If a program behaves in a suspicious manner, it is immediately blocked.

Version 10 of Avira AntiVir can provide enhanced security thanks to the intelligence on emerging virus threats collected from the 100 million-plus Avira users. This enhanced level to protection is offered to Avira users who join the Avira AntiVir ProActiv Community, which is the in-the-cloud component of ProActiv.

Thanks to the generic repair feature, Avira Antivir 10 cleans up after as-yet-undetected viruses. Thanks to the generic repair feature Avira Antivir can look for and remove any residual data left behind on the hard disk or in the Windows Registry after an infection has been removed.

The user interface in version 10 has been revised to provide a better overview of available features, slide-ups appear when a problem is detected by the real-time scanner, and malware can be removed with a single mouse click.

“Our antivirus solutions minimize our users’ malware worries and maximize their PC security. It is very important to us that our solutions should be even more user-friendly. We are also making online life easier for parents by including Parental Controls the AntiVir Suite that provide more powerful tools to protect their children while surfing the net – for example by allowing them to monitor what there are doing and seeing online, and by defining surfing times and days,” commented Head of Sales and Marketing with Avira, Travis Witteveen.

All editions of Avira Antivir version 10 can be downloaded straight from the company’s official site here.
