A post by Woody on AskWoody.com states that he was contacted by a person needing help dealing with constant pop-ups asking for money to continue his AV protection. From the post I assumed it to be a rogue AV that the person who was asking for help mistook for Avira due to a Google search he performed. However, Woody acts as if the deluge of pop-ups are indeed from Avira Antivir and even states, "Avira used to be a good program. Now it’s a piece of unscrupulous crapware." Although I don't use Avira, as far as I know it is a good AV and is highly regarded by many members here. I do use AskWoody.com for info on Windows Update information a lot of times and as far as I could tell the site always had good information in the past. Does anyone know what is making Woody make such a statement against Avira? Has Avira changed their practices and gone to using shady tactics?
