Avira optimizes your firewall settings. While the native Windows firewall is powerful it can be complex. Avira optimizes firewall settings with one click. Avira does its best to prevent hijack attempts of your PC from leaking data out. This antivirus has protection against ransomware. Ransomware is a situation when your computer becomes unusable until you pay bad guys to unlock it.
Ad-Aware's malware sandbox emulator intelligently analyzes possible threats by monitoring a potential threat in a virtual environment before it ends up on your computer. This prevents malware from ever actually doing damage on your computer. This process is done in the background. It does not require any user intervention. The Safe Browsing engine persistently checks newly browsed websites against a freshly updated list of known virus infected sites. The official Ad-Aware malware list is updated every 5-20 minutes. Ad-Aware Safe Browsing keeps you safe while you browse the web. Every new URL you visit is checked against a known blacklist of malicious sites. If you click on a dangerous link on accident then Ad-Aware Safe Browsing will immediately warn you.
