What’s new in Avira Free AntiVirus 2014 188.8.131.522 Beta:
- Avira Protection Cloud for Avira Free Antivirus. With Update 3 we are starting with the integration of Avira Protection Cloud in Avira Free Antivirus. This is going to be a step-by-step process to keep the workload of our servers monitored. With this initial beta build about 50% of all cloud requests will be performed.
- Avira Intelligent Repair System: AIRS is a refactoring and improvement of the current repair functionality in all Avira Windows products. AIRS will change the repair that it corresponds to current technology of malware and we are also able to react faster in repair and removal issues to clean up the infected users. For example with AIRS, we are able to delete random generated Registry keys from malware infection which was not possible before. Another highlight in AIRS is that we improved the option to change/ delete as well as create all security changes in the registry which are not located to the malicious infected path, but definitely made by malware.
