[ad#chaapsv2-top]

Avira Antivirus for 2012 has been released today. Avira GmbH which is a major software company known for providing the best antivirus products for the users has unveiled its yet another version of its popular antivirus software AntiVir 12.

One of the editors at the CNET, Seth Rosenblatt just revealed it today in the official blog post.

Avira has done some serious changes to the interface. It looks amazing and works faster than the “former products” Avira Antivir (what’s the name again?). Yes that’s right, Seth told us the company has dropped the “AntiVir” title and now is just known by the name Avira Antivirus.

Avira Premium Antivirus 2012 new interface

Coming to the good part, the new changes in the latest product is the “two-click” install. According to the Avira team, the antivirus is more lighter now and gets installed in just a matter of seconds and within few clicks. Don’t worry the features have not been compromised, the product actually performs better than before and as many say Avira is known for its “false positives”. Well you don’t have to worry about that, the new product has been fixed and is more reliable now.

Although you may want to make sure that you don’t have any other antivirus softwares installed prior to the installation. Even if you have, Avira makes sure to uninstall it before proceeding with the setup. As we all know running two or more antiviruses not only makes our system slow but also brings instability into the antivirus components.

Avira Webguard has also undergone some advanced changes. Let us hear what Seth has to say,

“the WebGuard takes a more aggressive approach to detecting sites that could be hosting malware before they load on your computer.”
