    Hello

    Does anyone know the main difference between the professional vs premium version ?

    If one needs for 1 computer, which is better ?

    from looking at it Avira Premium seems better suited for home use. The Pro version is geared more towards business (big and small)

    Is that the only difference ? I noticed that a firewall is included in Professional.

    If you read the slogan under the Heading of each Product:

    For Professional :
    Virus protection for PCs – secure and efficient

    For Premium:
    Surfing and email protection



    This is a bit confusing. I have contacted Avira as well, still waiting for a reply.

    Hi,

    To add to what cupez80 said, AntiVir Professional also includes the Avira Security Management Center.
    One more thing : AntiVir Professional can be installed on the network.
