Avira is hands-down one of the best antivirus software solutions available – even the free version is far better than many paid solutions. In my personal experience, I have seen a large amount of users with considerable system performance issues caused by viruses and malware that their antivirus software has been unable to detect. They have experienced a drastic improvement in performance as soon as they upgraded to the free version of Avira. The great customer value of Avira is due to the fact that it offers excellent protection while being lightweight: the effect on system resources is minimal. Avira’s Real-Time Protection is proactive, has a nearly instantaneous response to threats, and it can scan in the background with a relatively small impact on system performance. The free version is a must for any home user, and the Pro version offers enhanced protection during Internet browsing, online purchases and banking transactions.
Advanced SystemCare is a very interesting software, one I originally found when my computers performance was really bad. The features I really liked about this software was that I could change what programs started up when my computer booted windows, which made my loading time decrease. Then using it on occasional to sweep out junk files, bad registry files, and other useless things, makes it really great to tidy up your computer without going through the hassle of trying to track down all the things yourself. My favorite feature is the Turbo Boost/Game Booster, what this does is it turns off specific things (you can choose what it does or doesn't turn off) and what I have seen on some older systems is this can give about a 20% increase in performance. The only things that might not be great about this, is it can kind of be sluggish and feel bloated with things you won't use, but you may need to install anyway. You're able to use it for free, but it's very limited in what it can do then. This is one of my go-to software when I have to clean someone's computer, as a lot of the time the performance issues come from a lot of startup files, also things and stuff running in the background that you can disable through Advanced system care.
Because I’m an advanced IT geek, I am not used to have an antivirus on my personal computers, but with all the phishing and crap we download these days, it’s a must. Virus are more and more sophisticated, and maybe the operation system is more secure than it used to be, you are still in danger. You don’t want your computer to be infected by a ransomware for example and lose all your data. You need to find an antivirus that fits your needs. Avira is overall a great antivirus, but nothing else than a signature scanner. There is some strange choice like why do I need to be an administrator to start a scan? Why do you have a Firewall section when you don’t have a firewall? I tested both Antivirus Pro and Internet Security Suite. You know what? The different is that the security suite comes with “PC Speed Optimization”. How does it make a “Security Suite” adding “speeds”? Really not sure. Did I say that the website is very slow? There are many different preset scans that you can run. Standard recommendation of the industry is running a full scan once a week, and a Quick scan once a day. Why? Because full scan are to resource intensive, and with the new virus signature coming every day, you may have missed the virus from the real-time, so you want at least scan the most important files every day. A quick scan on my computer took 41 seconds. Excellent. My appreciation stops here. First, I expect from a security suite to help secure my computer. The firewall is just a configuration for the Windows Firewall, so, basically, they don’t have a firewall. There is a web filtering… but not sure how good it can be since there is no firewall, basic of Security Suite. There is also a Spam filter, that scan POP 110 and IMAP 143, both not SSL. I don’t see any integration in my Outlook, so if you are using Gmail, it won’t be scanned.

Avira Antivirus Pro is a better antivirus for PC product than half of the competitors in our product review. It’s just that, for Americans, it would be necessary to telephone long-distance to Europe if you had a situation that couldn’t be resolved via email. And in a market where most competitors provide online chat access to technical support, Avira does not. Finally, while quite a few of Avira’s competitors cover more than one PC with a single license, an Avira license protects just one PC.More about Avira Antivirus Pro

What Advanced SystemCarePro does do, it does very well. The only problem seems to be that the free version is extremely limited. If you're willing to pay for the paid version, you can get a much more fully featured piece of PC maintenance software.More about Advanced SystemCare Pro
