Editor’s Note: Top Ten Reviews uses test results from the independent laboratory AV-Test as part of our review process for the best antivirus software. AV-Test looks specifically at protection, performance and usability on multiple versions of Windows operating systems, and it performs these evaluations several times throughout the year. We use the most current AV-Test scores available at the time of our review. It is possible that new AV-Test scores will be released after our review goes live on the site. We will consider these scores during our next review of the best antivirus software.Competition among the top antivirus applications is fierce because of the millions of PC users who require protection from internet threats. It’s common to purchase antivirus software rather than settle for Windows Defender, which is part of Windows 10, because most third-party programs plug the holes Defender leaves open. One virus scanner well worth considering is Avira Antivirus Pro.

Blocking attacks, going lightly on your system resources, and accurately detecting threats without confusing good files for bad ones are the most important factors in antivirus software’s effectiveness. Added features are secondary to good performance. AV-Test, an independent test lab, ran 22 antivirus protection products that are compatible with Windows 10 through two months of continuous testing in March and April of 2016. Avira competes well with the best antivirus software in our review and placed higher than Windows Defender in all AV-Test areas.

The most impressive results for Avira came from the performance and usability tests. Avira made few mistakes in identifying between malware threats and legitimate content. It also received a perfect score in performance for not lagging down Windows 10 computer systems while it runs. This means your system will complete security scans and block threats without you noticing the antivirus protection software is running.

In the area of protection, Avira scored 5.5 out of 6. It detected and protected against most of the 164 known malware samples and over 22,000 newly discovered threats. This is the second-highest score a program can receive in this test area.

Avira Antivirus Pro goes beyond antivirus protection to include ransomware protection and antiphishing tools. It also scans both USB removable drives and incoming email, so threats are blocked regardless of where they originate. It also has a gamer mode, which suspends security scans while you are playing so as not to disrupt your fun.
