Avira Antivirus Pro can protect your computer for just $10
For a limited time, you can get set up with Avira Antivirus Pro anti-virus protection software (opens in new tab) for just $9.99. This special promotion takes almost 80% off its regular annual cost of $45 and even drops it lower than what you usually see older versions going for these days. This is a limited deal you won't find anywhere else, and you won't see it for very long.
Avira Antivirus Pro protects your PC from online threats, malicious websites, and spyware. It also heads off phishing attacks on social networks and can clean and repair compromised files, as well as scan email attachments.
We consider Avira Antivirus Pro to be some of the best antivirus software on the market thanks to its balance of premium features and affordable price tag (even at full price). Today's deal makes it an even better value. We also found it to be very easy to use with minimal hogging of your PC's resources.
So what can Avira do for you? For starters, it offers a lot of protection. It can block online threats and judge websites to see if they are malicious, protecting you when you don't even realize you need protection. It also shields your system from ransomware and spyware. There's even anti-scam protection that is designed to keep an eye out for phishing attacks on social networks, including the newest scams related to COVID-19.
If you do happen to already have some malware installed, Avira can clean and repair any damaged files or applications and remove the malware that has compromised them. Plus, Avira can scan email attachments for viruses and other malware to help you avoid issues next time, warning you about links that may lead to scams or phishing attempts, and more. Its email smarts works great with Outlook, Gmail, and most popular clients.
A few of the other notable features of the Avira Antivirus Pro include the ability to scan downloads, including media like music or photos, and block attacks on your personal information like credit cards or bank details. You can also set up your own firewalls to block access to sensitive areas on your network, block ads, and disable trackers. For $10 per year, you're getting a pretty comprehensive suite of privacy and security tools, though this deal won't stick around for too long.

Nice deal but I'm reluctant to stop using the inbuilt Microsoft Defender.
I'm curious as to why? I've found that 3rd party antivirus & internet security software seem to detect things that MS Defender doesn't.
