Last Customer Reviews: Avira vs Spybot

Jsmith
It's been 2 years for me with avira. I’m fully satisfied with the ease of use and advance functionality.
Sebastian Nord
Being Avira user, I also recommend it to others. It’s features and protection is really amazing.
Lily
I have tried 4 antivirus pieces of software on my PC and I like Avira because it does not slow down the system. No doubt, all the popular antivirus are great in protection but I shall choose Avira pro due to ease of use.

So I got this in 2018, it did remove some spyware, but not all. Well last week I kept trying to play fallout 4 and was getting really bad frame rates. Did everything trying to fix it. Finally I went into thr game, and when it began to lag as usual, I brought up task maskmanager. The only item even remotely showing that it was using the disk was avast. Disk usage was at 100% but avast was using only 0.4mb. Weird I know. So I brought it up to see what it was doing, and it was in silent mode so as to not interfere with gaming. But then it popped a warning that some programs were slowing my machine. Opened that and only 3 things showed. Adobe reader, steam and spybot, that had the biggest bar of the 3. So I went back to task manager, still claimed spybot was using nothing. But I ended task on both its processes anyways, and bam! Disk usage dropped from 100% to just 7%. This program became the very thing it claimed to combat, and was being underhanded in hiding the fact that it was using 93% of the disk! I will never use this ever again
