With a focus on providing efficiency and cutting edge antivirus technology, Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 software is slated to be one of the most advanced and highly anticipated antivirus software releases of the year. With over 20 years in the antivirus industry, the engineers and designers at Avira know a thing or two about providing the best protection from viruses, malware and web-based technological threats. And while Avira’s free antivirus software is very popular and efficient, the new Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 offers more features and provides a superior level of protection against a wider range of threats. With an emphasis on providing a superior level of computer protection, Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 was recently tested and proved to thwart an amazing 99.3% of malware programs with ease. As you’d expect there have been some major enhancements, improvements and additions to Avira Antivirus Premium 2012. Antivirus software – if it’s going to be effective and worth your money – has to be one or two steps ahead of the curve. Early indications are that Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 software’s newest features and improvements should provide the high level of protection that today’s computers deserve.
Avira Antivirus Premium 2012, as you’d expect from the best premium antivirus programs, runs very efficiently. One of the reasons that this software is so efficient lies in its ultra-fast scanning speeds. With the ability to scan at up to 17MB per second, this software is able to fly through the files on any PC and locate, isolate and stop threats before they do any damage to your computer. Of course, before you can get Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 up and running on your computer, it has to be installed. This is another area where Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 shines in terms of performance. Installation is easy, intuitive and doesn’t require you to be a computer expert to get the software installed properly. Once Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 is installed it goes right to work, without using up excessive resources. If you’ve ever dealt with antivirus programs that bog your computer down during real-time scans, you’ll certainly appreciate that fact that this AV software does its important scanning tasks without noticeably slowing down your computer.
With all of the major features that you’d expect from a premium antivirus program, Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 also includes some major new features and improvements. The key feature of interest is the ProActiv scanning feature. This particular bit of technology monitors your system’s behavior. As you know, there are some threats out there that can slide in undetected and cause your PC to start doing strange things. The ProActiv Feature knows how your system is supposed to behave, and when the computer deviates from normal behavior, this feature goes to work to determine if there is a problem and to take corrective action when necessary. In addition to up-to-date virus protection technology and the ProActiv feature, Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 also allows you to create an emergency bootable disc. Some people don’t make use of this feature, but if you ever experience a total system crash, having a recovery disc can be a huge benefit.
Help & Support
This is the one area where we weren’t all that impressed with what Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 has to offer. While their support for the software is okay, it’s nowhere near as in depth and robust as its competitors. Software companies usually provide online chat features or email support ticket systems. Avira does not offer either of these to their customers. They do have a helpful FAQ section on their website, but we would love to see them step-up their support system to be on par with what people expect from a leader in the AV market place.
With easy installation, intuitive set up features and the latest/greatest monitoring, scanning and protection features, we do think that the Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 is the kind of AV software that most people will benefit from having on their computers. If you’ve been looking to take your computer’s antivirus protection to the next level, you can’t go wrong with Avira Antivirus Premium 2012.
