Avira has revamped its virus definition so as to reduce the file size and update the virus definition every time the PC is connected to the Internet.

It also provides a set of free utility software such as “Rescue System” that allows you to write a bootable CD that can be later downloaded as an .exe or .iso file.

The installation speed is good. Due to its new way of virus detection, with every scan the antivirus would not consume much of the time. However, the speed would also depend on the number of files in the hard disk you are scanning. Due to its proactive action against the viruses even before they run and halt the unknown code with the suspicious behavior, they are swift in the PC protection.
