My avira antivir is not updating
Hi, I had this problem with Avira not updating, and found that even though I am using Firefox, the solution is in Explorer. Avira needs to look into this as this means the setup is taking the LAN settings from IE even if you use Firefox. I think its because they have few servers or some type of ancient setup over there. Now to the right of Application Control click Settings. Set the second one (Defense Net) to Manual from Auto. You should get a popup from Zone Alarm saying something has been blocked from accessing the internet. This was why I couldn't find it in the Zone Alarm program list, because ZA doesn't list it as "Avira". No problems updating except to say there are better times of day to attempt to update..

It works fine on my other surface, just my laptop seems to be having problems.
First, remember where the Avira servers are and as such, time your updates when the rest of the world is not online.. Second, it's also fairly easy to manually update Avira by clicking on the link below, then click on the "Download IVDF (Unicode)" link in the middle of the page, then download the update file (it's a file) to your desktop.
I find no problems when setting the automatic update time to or P. Once it's there, open Avira, click on the "Update" menu at the top, select "Manual Update", navigate to the file on your desktop, then follow the prompts to update the program. this helps.
As with the free antivirus ALL of them will fail to update at one time or another. Anyone can help/..specific situation.types of operating systems you're trying to install Avira on, or the makes and models of the computers, or the exact VERSION of Avira you're attempting to use.. Instead of updating try the old way of removal then installing the latest. It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and replying to it will serve no purpose.
If you can't accept this then move on to something that you can get support for. Anyone can help/If you have Zone Alarm Free Firewall and you have recently updated it this may be worth trying. Do the computers also have other antivirus programs installed? However, if you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so.
