This is their press center
Tettnang, 30 March 2009 – In a few days the worm known as Conficker has become more active. No reason to worry: The current anti-virus solutions from Avira recognize and remove the harmful program.
In order to be on the safe side, Avira strongly recommends its users to install the current Version 9 of AntiVir, which offers enhanced detection and elimination routines. The new version is faster since it has more processors or processor cores at its disposal.
The update offers users of the free Avira AntiVir Personal additional spyware detection and does not require any additional anti-spyware solution on the system. The new version can be downloaded from www.free-av.com. The users of Avira AntiVir Premium or Avira Premium Security Suite can download the update for their product from the Avira website. The license for Version 8 can be used with the current Version 9 until the end of the license period.
SO why use other antivirus?? Let's get Avira
