I will not be renewing my NOD32 subscription at the end of this year. My thought is to give Avira Antivir Personal Edition Classic a try. I want to explore several options and have a few months to do so. Is Avira Antivir a competent replacement? Also, most programs install with a certain set of default settings. Are the default settings good enough with this program or could they be tweaked to provide protection equivalent to "Blackspears Nod32 settings"?
