FREE... Avira Antivirus

Has good write-ups.
The link is for Mac, with PC, Android & iOS clickable links
http://www.avira.com/en/free-antivirus-mac
Not an AV I have used before, I have quite a few protections already enabled on my iMacs, but giving it a go, looks promising.
Also set up Real-Time protection for my various Browsers, notable Firefox & Chrome.

Anyone else use this, PC or Mac ?

Re: FREE... Avira Antivirus

I've been using it for a year or so on 2 PCs.  Anti-virus seems very good; I would recommend it strongly although there are a couple of minor reservations.
One downside is a pop-up a couple of times a week after boot-up which hypes the paid-for version.
Automatic updates work perfectly on one machine.  On the other (which is old and slow) I've had to schedule daily updates - it works fine.
Malwarebytes now finds much less malware than it used to when I had MSE on the fast machine and Avast on the slow one.
