    Hi,

    Avira has given a major update and new design/interface for their launcher.

    But missing many features like Antivirus setting and so on.

    Ugly, childish and useless UI. Avira from a serious AV became snake oil reseller.

    I think, AV is good but the presentation is not good.

    I agree. Interface and presentation is their weak spot. They should really hire a good interface designer.

    Interface and presentation is not the only problem.
    What about garbage?

    1) Software updater
    2) VPN
    3) Passwords
    4) File shredder
    5) Cleaner
    6) Startup optimizer
    7) Battery saver
    8 ) Driver updater
    9) Duplicate finder

    @anon Yes it is bloated also. Most AV vendors nowadays add stuff to their software trying to up their revenue (VPNs, Password managers...). If they give me an option not to install them and don't pester me about them I'm OK. Off course if they install things without your consent that's another thing.

    Login into my avira dashboard and just install antivirus only.

    I did it and OK with just antivirus.

    Yet another reason to just use Windows Defender.

    OH MY! I stopped using Avira ever since they started their Launcher but this is way too overboard man! They even beat BitDefender with the amount of bloatware they include!
