Cnet / Download.com Mislabels New Version Of AVIRA Free Anti-Virus As (10.2.0.696). Instead Of The Correct Version Code Of (10.0.0.650)

Dear Readers,

It appears that Cnet / Download.com has apparently mislabeled the new version Of AVIRA Free Anti-Virus as (10.2.0.696). Instead of the correct version code of (10.0.0.650).

I’m not really sure why this is the case. It could be a minor oversight. But REGARDLESS it is FALSE advertising by Cnet / Download.com.

**But if for what ever reason you are interested in seeing the mistake I am talking about here is the link: AVIRA Free Anti-Virus 10 Version (10.0.0.650) Download Link (I have chosen to use the correct version code for the link description. But if you click on the link you’ll see the version code as (10.2.0.696). Which like I said is incorrect.

————

On Another Important Side Note: I figured it was probably a mistake as not even AVIRA’s main site has the new service pack 2 for direct download. You can only get it via AUTOMATIC update and or MANUAL Update.

I have checked the link above and it works. But please report via comment or e-mail if this link somehow becomes broken….

      Dear Rosario Moxey,

      Well in this case I just ran into this bit of interesting news. It just happened that both myself and a few of my team downloaded what Download.com/ Cnet claimed to be AVIRA’s newest version A LA service pack 2. (Also know as version (10.2.0.696) But in the end we found it to be a false statement and actually be the old version of AVIRA (10.0.0.650) which is -PRE-SERVICE PACK 2-

      Thanks for the comment,

      Remy “Se7en”
