Avira reveals stand-alone Avira PC Cleaner
By Mike Williams



Avira has announced the availability of the Avira PC Cleaner, a simple stand-alone antivirus scanner. The program is a mere 2.17MB download and doesn’t require any installation, reducing the chance of any conflicts with existing security tools. It scanned our test system quickly, detecting and removing a malware sample. One potential problem is that the Cleaner needs to download up to 100MB of updates the first time it runs, so can’t easily be used offline.
