Don't get me wrong, but I am trying to keep Avira on my system. I'll also add that I am incredibly picky and critical about software that doesn't function like I want them to. And to all who have read my previous posts, you'll probably also note that I really hate any, and I mean any, system slow down at any level of using a computer. Just a quick question about Avira. Has anyone noticed with Avira guard on: "For some reason, Avira makes my system "not" idle and thus C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch\Layout.ini seems to take about 5-6 hours (of supposedly idle time) before "updating/defragmenting". No problems with NOD32 or Comodo Antivirus, where it only takes about 10-15 minutes idle time before Layout.ini updates". Also, opening Avira GUI is very fast, but not as fast as opening NOD32 GUI or Comodo GUI. Needs improvement. That's right...it's a very competitive field out there Avira! Those are the main complaints for now. And before I get bashed on this forum, let me say that Avira Free is one of the best AVs out there! Phew.
