Avira Antivirus Pro - Review 2020 - PCMag IndiaAvira Antivirus Pro - Review 2020 - PCMag IndiaPosted: 11 Jun 2020 12:00 AM PDTEvery computer needs antivirus protection, and one way companies can support that aim is to provide free antivirus to the masses. But these companies can't survive unless some users shell out their hard-earned cash for paid antivirus utilities. Piling on pro-only tools and components is one way companies encourage upgrading to a paid antivirus. Avira Antivirus Pro adds several components not available to users of Avira Free Security, but they don't really add much value. The biggest reason to pay for it is if you want to use Avira in a commercial setting, which isn't allowed with the free version.Avira's pricing is undeniably on the high side, with a list price of $59.88 per year for one license, $71.88 for three, and $95.88 for five. Admittedly, it seems to be perpetually on sale; just now, the one-license price is discounted to $44.99. That…

everyone, I recently recovered my W7 computer to what I thought was a safe backup because I had made some driver and setting changes I wanted to roll back. After recovering I ran Malwarebytes and nothing came up. Then I did a scan with Windows Security Essentials and it picked up a couple of possible viruses, things that hadn't come up before during my most recent scans pre-recovery, as far as I know they were nested within archives and programs I had downloaded in the past but did not run. One might have been a false positive because it resided in one of my 3d Animation Programs that for all intents and purposes is legit and safe. After removing i restarted my computer and it ran Chkdsk. Things seem fine now and I wasnt even experiencing any real performance issues to begin with but I wanted, for some peace of mind, to get your opinions.

The viruses it found and that I hopefully removed correctly were listed as follows:

Win32:/Wacatac.C!ml
Win32/Tiggre!rfn
Win32/Skeeyah.A!rfn

Multiple instances and their locations were nested in downloads that I had not run. So hopefully they didn't spread within my system.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
